Comfort & Safety

by Hoax Hunters

supported by


The best music can stop time. The best songs have sounds that surround you, drowning out everything else. They annihilate year and age.

On Comfort and Safety, Hoax Hunters flood you with a hell of a lot of the best music. Fleets of buzz-rumble guitars that pull you out of your day, wave on wave of songs bust loose, buoy and buffet, like your first favorite record all over again.

This record is a torrent of noisy American rock: Sonic Youth squeals, Hüsker Dü hook-howls, Drive Like Jehu's ascending tensions, Dag Nasty's drenching intensity.

Living - like making truly excellent music - is no riskless business. Most of what we see and hear and are is just a copy of a copy, and the biggest hoax there is just might be that "comfort and safety" in this album's title. When Hoax Hunters unleash the full power of volume and anthem-chanting all that matters is that there's these great songs for you to fall into for a forever moment.

Negative Fun Records used to just make seven-inch singles, then we sold out and made LP's, then we got greedy and started making cassettes, now we've completely forgotten our roots and make compact discs.
