St. Christopher Medal’s second album “Hoof!” – out now!

Stereogram Recordings are delighted to announce the release of “Hoof!” the brilliant second album by St. Christopher Medal on June 21st 2019. It will be available on vinyl, CD, download and streaming formats. It was preceded by the video/download/streaming single “Fallen Angel”” on May 31st.

The six-piece send their heartworn, empyrian Country Rock rising into the vast blue skies of Highland Perthshire, where their music was made. Like ‘Joey’ from Dylan’s song, the album was finally ‘finished off’ in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

‘Hoof!’ picks up where 2015’s ‘Sunny Day Machine’ left off. Classic Scottish songwriting (TFC, Lloyd Cole, Trashcan Sinatras) and sweeping alt-americana (GP, Wilco, Okkervil River) filtered through thrilling, melodic guitar and piano – deserts, highways, half-dreamed visions of rock’n’roll heartlands.

From the opening cosmic struggles of ‘Fallen Angel’, through classic country rock epics like ‘Wayne, Moon Pilot’ (“sheer class from start to finish” Scots Whay Hae) ‘Hoof!’ moves across a landscape of unfinished moments from rock’s back pages, finding new things to talk about on its way. Songs about real life, about people you know – songs about the world we live in.

By the time it arrives at the last song, ‘Hoof!’, the record has swept itself into a crescendo of optimism despite everything.
