The Hinges, a Psychedelic Folk Sextet from Olympia Washington. Postcard is the 3rd Chapter in their evolution from a duo to a six-person combo. After a pandemic spent stoking the campfire The Hinges return with an expanded, richer and fuller guitar electric sound. Thoughtful, poetic, mind-burgeoning, The Hinges wear their paisley undepants outside the box for all to see; singing the blues for Mother Earth.

About The Hinges:

Karen Hancock and Danny Kelly released their first duo CD, Surprise! in 2013 with the contribution of friend and producer Colm Meek. Home recorded and fully self-produced, the 9 songs from that first record are still staples in today’s live sets. By the time of their second record, 2018’s Buzz & Shine, they had begun playing with drummer Robin Toye and bassist Robin Green, which instantly gave the band and the record a richer and more percussive feel. After Buzz & Shine’s release the recording of the next record was already underway along with the addition of violinist Ben MacSpadden. Then the pandemic...The Hinges resumed recording with a whole new approach. The band convened, post-pandemic, at Avast! and recorded as a full live band, now expanded to the full sextet that it is today with the addition of keyboard player Theo Ragun. Postcard, produced by Ken Levy, is their most expansive and dimensional endeavor yet, with plenty of little sonic surprises throughout. Enjoy!
