The Sisters of St. Anthony: The B-Sides

A 12 track alt country album (48m 24s) — released May 27th 2016 on Audio Antihero

An eclectic collection of beguiling B-Sides from (longtime John Peel favourites) Hefner guitarist Jack Hayter, taken from his "Sisters of St. Anthony" series (featured in the iTunes UK Singer/Songwriter Best of the Year).

While the Folkier sound that Hayter is best known for is present here on "I Stole the Cutty Sark" and "Ramshackle Blood & Bones", "O Dreamland!" stands out for its mix of pierside field recording and sparse looping instrumentals, plus, there's broken attempts at Electro-Pop courtesy of "BBC Eyes" and "Yanky Dancy" while the acclaimed Dollboy offers a desolate and dystopian "last broadcast"-esque remix of "Charlotte Badger" - the collection ends with "The Lab Technician and The Sexton", a cruel and menacing spoken word piecewith a crushing slug on a razor's edge instrumalism.

The freedom that Hayter enjoys on these B-Sides is a million miles away not only from his work with Hefner but from what people have come to expect Hayter's solo work too.

Jack Hayter's voice has ghosts... - Pitchfork

The reaction it derives; the confused nose-curl, the perplexity it inspires is needed and above all fun – even in a scene where we’re all so, so, sooooo serious - The Line of Best Fit

This is all about Hayter and his incredible haggard voice - For Folk's Sake

Beautifully eccentric folk music - 8/10. - The Digital Fix
