about

We spent the week in a cabin in the rainy foothills of the Sierras to make this album. For this release, we wanted to take a deeper foray into beat-based music.

The seven core songs of this album were each created start to finish in a single day, with no prepared material. We started each piece with a core idea, then the song would take on a life of its own, as we took turns adding tracks or editing until it felt done.

The resulting set evokes the mood of our surroundings, filled by pines and electronics and watched over by machines of loving grace.

about

Here Are The Facts You Requested San Francisco, California

While many groups burrow deeper into genres which seem to fracture music, Here Are The Facts You Requested finds the best music is not in fractions, but fractals. They rise above styles to speak about music in its totality - the grand melting pop.

Comprised of happy noise, the music of HATFYR is aggressively eclectic. They seek the psychedelic within pop as genres collapse and cross-pollinate.

Track Name: All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace
All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace
I like to think (and
the sooner the better!)
of a cybernetic meadow
where mammals and computers
live together in mutually
programming harmony
like pure water
touching clear sky.

I like to think
(right now, please!)
of a cybernetic forest
filled with pines and electronics
where deer stroll peacefully
past computers
as if they were flowers
with spinning blossoms.

I like to think
(it has to be!)
of a cybernetic ecology
where we are free of our labors
and joined back to nature,
returned to our mammal
brothers and sisters,
and all watched over
by machines of loving grace.
