Haunted Hearts is an art project of Dee Dee Penny (Dum Dum Girls) & Brandon Welchez (Crocodiles). It is many years dreamt, one cold winter realized. It is not the melding of two bands; it is a true collaboration.
Haunted Hearts’ first full-length album, entitled Initiation, will be released on Zoo Music May 27th 2014. Dream Records will release a cassette version.
The album was written in the winter of 2012, holed up in their apartment, surrounded by a lot of books, Motown, and Krautrock.
Initiation was recorded by Jon Greene at Electric Orange Studios in San Diego, mixed by Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink/Violens) at Static Recording in Brooklyn, and mastered by Joe La Porta at Sterling Sound in New York City.
There’s no room for shivers tonight.
