Austin TX math rockers Hikes offer their third LP Lilt; their debut on Community Records! Recorded with founding Toe guitarist Takaaki Mino when Hikes toured Japan, Lilt is a captivating portrait of the deeply realized union of founding members Nathan Wilkins and Will Kauber and their dynamic math rock sound as it’s become filled out by rhythm section members Chris Long and Colin Jenkins. Drawing as much from their histories in hardcore and metal as they do Austin’s indie pop currents, Hikes restlessly straddle the math rock spectrum from the riffy heaviness of Braid to Toe’s refined jazz fusion and personalize it with pastoral strokes of folk. Rapid mathematical patterns entrance and inculcate one with the outgoing, adventurous character of Hikes and, in four songs, Lilt gives listeners enough to satisfy but enough variation to encourage repeated listens!

All People
All People's initial concept was "All People Translate Pure Unfiltered Emotion." The phrase described what the band would be for us: a conduit for emotion and feeling. It's a kind of mantra or spiritual belief that also touches on the idea that we wholeheartedly believe there is a pure and common energy connecting all of humanity. Music is our method of self expression within this common energy, but each person has their unique way of expressing what's in their hearts.

All People – "S/T" is our third album and the most accurate representation of that concept. The record is a 'soundtrack to youthful daydreams with fits of ecstasy and a preoccupation with the crushing drama of the small stuff' — 27 minutes of dark and dreamy post-punk inspired by synth-driven bands of the '80s and guitar-driven bands of the early '90s and bound by introspective lyrics. Themes touch on mental illness and anxiety and incidents of death and suicide we experienced among our loved ones — all woven into our perception of human nature. These songs help us stay positive and not succumb to depression. There is light at both ends of the tunnel.

All People – "S/T" is out Friday, May 20 2016 on Community Records. The band and DIY label are based in New Orleans, Louisiana. All People's Daniel Ray and Greg Rodrigue also co-founded and run Community Records.
