About the Album

"Michael Hearst's new album, among his very best, includes all that has made his work so strong in the past--great melody writing, unusual rhythms and timbres, singular lyrical obsessions, but adds some new flavors. Hints of electronica, for example, drift through this lament about predations of digital culture. As always with Hearst's work, Say Hello To The Party is refreshing, unpredictable, and new."
— Rick Moody, author of On Celestial Music and The Ice Storm

Say Hello To The Party is an exploration of the dichotomy between human emotions and the relentlessly-encroaching dominance of machines and technology in our lives. The album weaves a compelling narrative through its thought-provoking lyrics and catchy melodies, all while introducing an eclectic array of unusual instruments and sounds.

"The album encapsulates the notion that technology will continue to take over our world, and it's time to confront the consequences . . . or at least create an album about it," explains frontman Michael Hearst.
