A limited, one-time pressing of 400 gatefold 2xLPs! Following the widely praised and cherished EP from 2013, "Domino", Dukes of Chutney spent the last seven years crafting their first full-length album, "Hazel", pulling from dub, folk, Balearic, ambient, and other sounds of bliss.

The Berlin-based vocalist Petra joined Dustin Lynn and John Paul Jones in the mid `10s to grace "Hazel" with breezy, dubby vocals.

"Hazel" features guest instrumentalists Wovette and E Ruscha V. Arp synthesizer runs, patient nylon string guitar fretting, echo-laden sax and flute, suitcase organ, melodica, toy xylophone, and even a fiddle, all gurgle up in the mix and lend to the collective and complete clarity of "Hazel"'s vision.

"Hazel" can be many shades at once while also refracting into a single hue for the eye's mind.

Traces of bossa nova and whispered folk mix with the natural ambience that inspired its creation.

There are steady throbs like a memory of a night of revelry and bliss, the kind of sonic tingle that evokes headswim or shoegaze.

You can also pick out dub and jazz, Afro-cosmic and tropicália, Balearic and Japanese environmental music, spaghetti westerns and dream pop.

Or you can just let go of these ideas of taxonomy and genre tags and just let Hazel wash over you.
