about

The Neo-Folk World Rock duo, HuDost (from Montreal & Kentucky), team up with Steve Kilbey (lead singer & bassist of The Church) for an experimental collaborative album called 'The Word is…'. The record also features Jon Anderson of YES on a sprawling 8 minute multi-leveled track called OMEGA.

In addition to the familiar and luring lead vocals of Moksha Sommer & Steve Kilbey, the album features HuDost guitarist Jemal Wade & Steve as multi-instrumentalists providing sonically rich layers of guitars, bass, synths, mellotrons, piano and varying electronic treatments. The record also features musical contributions from Melissa Hyman on cello, Sofia Goodman on drums, Kai Welch (Abigail Washburn) on horns, Joe Garcia on Pedal Steel, Cybele on Sarangi & Stephan Junca on percussion.

'The Word is...' was a labour of love created over the course of 3 years and was produced by Jemal Wade Hines. Master sound man Oz Fritz (Tom Waits, Bill Laswell, Zakir Hussain) mixed the music to perfection. The album was mastered by Dale Becker of Bernie Becker Mastering.

Besides the 8 original co-written tracks, there's also a cover of the Velvet Underground's 'Sunday Morning’ that was recorded the morning Lou passed away, as well as a re-working of Kilbey's classic track 'Something That Means Something'.

The album cover art features a beautiful painting by Steve Kilbey as well as more album art throughout the packaging by renowned artist E.J. Gold.
