RESIN HITS’ debut full length, How to Cut a Rock is about affliction, pessimism, suicide, global warming, positivity and peace.
Daniel Hukill has been deeply steeped in DIY show booking, playing and organizing for years - he started and ran a venue in Auburn, Alabama called the w6 house for several years before moving back to his home state of California where he met Jamey Anderson. Jamey and Daniel began the band the Vonneguts. Matt Bonuiuto joined the band in Portland and eventually transformed to RESIN HITS. Hukill has also made a name for himself as a notable visual artist, and released a lo-fit version of some of these songs under the name “Resin Trickster.”
Borrowing from diverse influences such as The Kinks and The Lapse, Hukill's voice is emotive, lyrics are gracious, and overall, this record carves out a unique place for the band in the current landscape of indie rock.
Hukill, who wrote most of these songs at the home of Exotic Fever Records owner - Katy Otto, talks about the writing process, "A lot of these songs were written while on tour so they carry a detached or third person voice. Attempting to understand my life while thousands of miles away from home, sometimes makes it easier to put things into perspective.”
The album was recorded in Portland, Oregon by Marcello Spina on 1/2" 16-track tape. All songs were written by Daniel Hukill. Jamey Anderson played drums, Matt Bonuiuto played guitars and bass, and Daniel Hukill played bass, guitars and sang.
HTCAR features contributions from Dan Eccles (Richmond Fontaine, Fernando), who on “Resin Trickster” and Joel Hatmaker (DMV, p.o.p.itilopitius), who leant guitars to “Peace is Power” and “Burning Ball and Canopy.”
RESIN HITS has seen a number of incarnations and line up changes, and is currently in a process of regrowth in Los Angeles, where Hukill has taken on a troop of three brothers as his new touring band.
