Astronaut is the first single from Jack Ladder & the Dreamlanders new album, Hijack!, out September 10 through Endless Recordings world wide.
released June 25, 2021
Jack Ladder’s balance between hilarity and misery, beauty and absurdity can be heard in Astronaut as it evokes Elton John’s Rocket Man, David Bowie’s Space Oddity and Europe’s The Final Countdown.
Alongside Ladder and Pike’s production, Hijack! was recorded by Simon Berckleman at Golden Retriever studios, Sydney and mixed by Francois Tetaz (Wolf Creek OST, Gotye).
Just the other day I was turned on to The Don AKA Mr. Experience thanks to my brother, who only found out because of the magically mysterious YouTube algorithms. So thanks, science! And a big, BIG thank you to Donny Benét for cooking the tastiest sounding sauce on the block! Super excited to see what comes next from this swank and sexy soul!
PS. It would be a real pleasure if we could get some limited batch cassette tapes of your taste. Something to listen to whilst hiking with a Sony Walkman analogwaves
while the deep baritone and balladry definitely strike a tone fitting a sad, and somewhat twisted, corollary to 'The Boatman's Call', there's a lot more going on here sonically, such as the infectious rhythms of 'Dates' and 'INM' suit goth
