The Honey and the Hiss

by Helicopters

An exercise in the lush, layered interpolation of seemingly disparate sounds, organic textures and electrified glitch, all wrapped in a blanket of cozy pop songwriting.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Upon listening to Helicopters' latest release "The Honey and the Hiss" you will undoubtedly wonder how this band has flown under your radar for so long. Despite their share of noteworthy milestones — playing Lollapalooza, performances with bands such Athlete, The Smoking Popes and Au Revoir Simone, and receiving critical-acclaim with several albums — Helicopters has gone largely unheard by a broader audience, remaining only in the music catalogs of those in the know.

Helicopters is the definition of an independent band. Not just "indie" stylistically but "independent" meaning every aspect of the creative and business process — from writing, recording, production and mastering to marketing, design, publicity and booking — is handled by the same three guys: Jason Caldeira, Brian Fifield and Dave Moran, collectively known as Helicopters. The band started their own label FlyCasual Records in 2005 and has since released music by Helicopters as well as various other solo and side projects.

Possibly too polished to the ears of the musically elite yet too experimental to truly be mainstream, Helicopters is content sitting in a chair of prolificacy, having released seven albums — 4 full-lengths and 3 EPs — over the course of their six year career. Each release an exercise in the lush, layered interpolation of seemingly disparate sounds, organic textures and electrified glitch, all wrapped in a blanket of cozy pop songwriting.

With "The Honey and the Hiss" Helicopters deliver another recording that will leave you wondering where you've been and what else you might have missed.
