High Dependency Unit - Metamathics
Posted: Wed Mar 26, 2008 6:27 pm
Metamathics: (n) (short form of 'metamathematics')
The investigation of the properties of realities intrinsically unknowable by and from our own, but whose general principles can be hazarded at.
-- Iain M Banks, 'Excession'

In 2006 HDU took fans by surprise when they broke a recording silence of five years. Their first self-recorded and meticulously self-produced single from their own Furtherist label, TUNGUSKA - an epic, psychedelic soundtrack - stormed alternative radio and saw audiences packing out venues to capacity again to catch a glimpse of the band they’d assumed had called it a day. In 2007 they released another taster in the form of the limited edition split 7“ vinyl of STUPORMODEL (sold out), backed with another Dunedin punk 3-piece, Die!Die!Die!

The fourth album from HDU – METAMATHICS – makes both these tracks available together for the first time.

Four years in the making and entirely recorded and produced by drummer Dino Karlis and Bevan Smith (AKA Signer, AKA Aspen), the group recorded much of the album in different parts of the world. In 2006 they found themselves starting again nearly from scratch after a hard drive died taking all the album mixes with it. In the true HDU tradition of constant creative evolution, the final result is quite a different album created from mostly the same material. It also features an outstanding cast of guest musicians such as Tom Watson (Cassette), Julia Deans (Fur Patrol), Lee Prebble and Celia Church.

On METAMATHICS, HDU have once again built an uncommon aural landscape on a solid foundation of damaged guitar riffs and breathtaking dynamics. From the cover art by Wellington’s extraordinary Martin Thompson to the stark beauty of album closer WISH WE WERE HERE - where the breath of the players is still just audible – METAMATHIC‘s secret lies in affording each element the proper level of care and distinction to create a mesmerizing whole.

HDU are touring New Zealand, May 2008.
