Biography

Hercules & Love Affair return with their new album ‘Blue Songs’ on Moshi Moshi, released 31st January.

Blazing a trial with the worldwide club smash Blind, their self-titled debut garnered considerable critical and commercial acclaim. Named as the Breakthrough Album of the year in The New York Times and featuring in Pitchfork’s Top Ten albums of 2008,

Herc main man Andy Butler has shifted the focus gently away from the New York house and disco forms of the debut; relocating to Denver and recording the album in Vienna with techno producer Patrick Pulsinger. Herc mainstay Kim Ann Foxman returns on vocals, and is joined in starring roles by Venezuelan singer Aerea Negrot, fan-turned-collaborator Shaun Wright , Kele Okereke (Bloc Party) and Mark Pistel (Meat Beat Manifesto/Consolidated).

‘Blue Songs’ sees Bulter broaden his musical palette – “There’s definitely jacking house and there’s definitely even more full-blown disco, but there’s also more experimental, softer music” he explains,.
