The Ballad of Lucy Grey
hazy loper's third studio album, out march 4th 2006, features
songwriters and singers angus and kadyk back again
with more dark and haunting tunes only this time boasting
a full band that includes andrew kushin on upright bass,
morgan fichter on fiddle and will waghorn on drums.
recorded live by norman rutherford, the result is lush and dreamy,
but with an edge that is raw and fierce.



Last Night of the Earth from Zach Von Joo on Vimeo.

Since 2003 hazy loper, the San Francisco duo comprised of multi instrumentalists, instrument builders, historians, and artists has been performing and recording a raw and natural breed of gothic backwoods folk music. led by Patrick Kadyk and Devon Angus, hazy loper employs strange tunings, a sense of time and place, and a diy approach to form and cacophony.

"many of the ten originals on high in the murk have the feel of classics. there's just a consistent tone of impeccable musicianship, melancholy poetry and timelessness.�
-sherry sly, west coast performer

"take away the orchestral sway of 'arcade fire' and some of the precision of 'black heart procession' and you'll start to imagine hazy loper. the songs are approached as a long boat approaches a wave; proudly upright, defiant even. the sea that they sail on is a dark one, moonlit, rough, deep and filled with monsters. the songs have an epic historical feel."
-david cowling, americana-uk.
