Make A Rising - Rip Through the Hawk Black Night

SKU 28-HITW5.2
"Tunneling its way out of the West Philadelphia nether worlds, Make A Rising arrives with their utterly unique sound fully formed on their debut album. Rip Through the Hawk Black Night is a swirling mix of violin, keyboard, guitars, drums, saxophone, trumpet, bells, whistles and assorted noisemakers – all swelling together to manifest subversively addictive pop gems. With orchestral crescendos, off-kilter vocals and fast-changing tempos, Make A Rising is the sound of chaos, bliss, bravado, nerves and naiveté – avant chamber rock at its most dynamic – imagine Daniel Johnston singing Beach Boys songs interpreted by Naked City. Rooted in the same soil that fertilized the Sun Ra Arkestra and the “Psychedelphia” wave of indie rock, Make A Rising is part of a new wave of Philadelphia outsider rock that includes Man Man, An Albatross and Need New Body. The Philadelphia City Paper named an early version of this album, sold only at shows, one of the Best Local CDs of 2004."

“Taking cues from Sun Ra, lo-fi rock and circus music, Make A Rising creates trans-genre music that should land them on the cover of some international glossy music publication.” – Philadelphia Independent
