WELCOME TO THE HOBBLE FAMILY, MR KEVIN DEVINE!
Bubblegum/Bulldozer (LP, CD, Digital)
In all respects, this has been a long time coming.
Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Kevin Devine and I have crossed paths before many years ago, but here we are again, and I couldn’t be happier. His innovative music sits somewhere between conventional genres, still retaining an incredible level of accessibility, intelligence and oftentimes a bold simplicity. His musical career is a story of hard work, building on small victories and embracing supporters. It’s a great fit for Hobbledehoy, and truly an honour to be working with Kevin and his own self-release label Devinyl for AUS/NZ. He had this to say…
“Devinyl is proud to team up with Hobbledehoy – a smart, motivated, truly independent label with a cool & diverse roster. I’m relieved & excited to have found such a philosophically-aligned home for these albums.”
Kevin has released not one but two new albums, and simultaneously to boot. One, Bulldozer, is a solo effort produced by Elliott Smith collaborator Rob Schnapf, and the other, Bubblegum, a full band effort with his Goddamn Band, produced by Jesse Lacey of Brand New. Raising over $100k via a Kickstarter campaign to fund album production and touring, Devine was subsequently highly motivated, buzzing with the amount raised which was over double the $50k target. The result, two brilliant, and different, full length albums.
The Bubblegum/Bulldozer albums are available to download from iTunes and other digital retailers immediately. The vinyl LP and CD editions can be pre-ordered now and will ship from April 2, before the official street date of April 11 2014 when the albums will be in stores nationally.
LP, CD, Digital:

Packaged in a gatefold sleeve, the first 500 were all hand-numbered. While most that went out to stores fell outside of this and were not numbered, I still have a few of the hand-numbered editions available in our online store. This was HOB013. The pre-order also crashed our website for half a week… but we have much stronger servers now.
Caspian's “Halls of the Summer” recorded live on the ApK sessions. From their album, Waking Season.
Cotton-Blend Black Cycling Cap
This is a quality, hand-made, traditional style 4-panel cap, by Walz USA. Sporting a minimalist sleek design, clean lines and a small embroided Hobbledehoy logo on the side, it fits perfectly under the helmet or solo atop your melon.
A seasonal all-rounder, the 65% polyester / 35% cotton fabric has a durable lightweight feel that’s still tough enough to handle years of riding. There’s an antibacterial band stitched inside to wick sweat and dry quickly, and the 4-panel construction with elastic rear section ensures a comfortable fit. The bills stabiliser is made entirely with fabric, it won’t disintegrate like cardboard or crack like plastic inferior caps use; making our cap entirely machine washable.
The Leap Year - Surprise Party
From the 2nd full-length studio album, “The Narrowing”, out now on Hobbledehoy Records.
