Support 88Nine And This Artist:
In November 2007, following a US tour supporting the Boggs’ third album, Forts, Jason Friedman and touring-Bogg Eleanore Everdell found themselves in the studio recording a brand new collaborative track without the rest of the band. “In the past, the collaborators I worked with would adjust what they did to fit my vision,” says Friedman. “Working with Eleanore it was clear that the time had come to shift into a more equal partnership.” The result of this new approach was “DRESSED IN DRESDEN”, a fractured pop thumper that showed Eleanore assuming full vocal duties over heavy beats and staccato guitars.
In the 10 months since that session, the seven-year-old Boggs were laid to rest, and THE HUNDRED IN THE HANDS were formed. With carefully composed polyrhythms, jagged guitar lines, and layered, breathy vocals, THE HUNDRED IN THE HANDS keep the raw energy of post-punk illuminating their minds and Studio One boogie-down beats churning in their guts. This is no Rock concert spectacle, no stationary stare-fest. These are soundsytem-backed, foot stomping, clap hands beats for akimbo-limbed boogie kids. Ballrooms and bar floors are built strong, it’s time to give them a pounding.
Eleanore Everdell Sings on ‘Lover’s Day’ the final cut off TV on the Radio’s Dear Science, and recorded vocals Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson’s forthcoming Summer Of Fear.
Jason Friedman’s the Boggs have released three critically acclaimed albums, played and toured with the Rapture, Hot Chip, Long Blondes, The Kills, Calla, and the Duke Spirit, and have been remixed by Hot Chip and Shy Child. Past members include Matt Schulz of Enon and Holy Fuck, Heather D’Angelo of Au Revoir Simone, and Sam Jayne of Love As Laughter.
