Artist: HURRAY
Title: Anytime You Want
Format: 7"
Label: Hurray
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"Two real-time songs, recorded direct to phone.  One more skeletal but not too slow, with wrong bass notes and a story being told.  The other side is a fast rocker, with the vocals buried and two drummers.  This record is Hurrays new music, with words, beats and notes.  Gli Sono Hurray." - Hurray.

Title: Live Champion
Format: One Sided LP
Label: Hurray
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"LIVE CHAMPION show the first Hurray live performance. As one side of a record, it is fifteen minutes. Recorded w/ a video camera in 2002 or 03, it was played to accompany two dancers. Chronologically, it follows the bands first 7-inch -- Hands -- and predates their first full-length LP Dream, Not Soft Illusion. The sound falls closest to Treasure Chest, the bands 2004 LP of home and practice space recordings. Less than noise, it is skittering and intimate, like a rocking-chair attached to instruments. Four people play in and out of primitive rhythms, some melodies, and changes of time. The video recording dissolves before the end, but a listener can still sense the whole of the song. An early time in the band, it was one of their happiest live performances. Hurray continue to exist and will soon release a double LP of out-takes from their first studio LP (DNSI) alongside a new song long-player." - Hurray. Edition of 100 copies.

Title: More Opiates and Bike Song
Format: LP
Label: Hurray
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"More Opiates and Bike Song is a new LP by Hurray. Each side of the album has three versions of one song. The music is improvised, but for one reason or another lyrics, notes, ideas - these are songs. They can be replayed, just not in the same way twice. The musicians make up the music in a rock-space, while remembering what they did the last time they called it More Opiates or Bike Song. More Opiates begins in a slow, blues mode with a bass line and a second guitar picking up the tune as the other one explodes. The singer sings of a woman, drugs, concern or condemnation. The second version is slow too, but drums and dueling guitars eventually grow into a martial horse-ride, Lancelot in Lancelot. The third Opiates floats on a voice, a guitar and a keyboard, much less rhythm. Side B has a new song and sound quality. It has a new singer too. He sings of an encounter and a bike shop, talking with an echo, like a ghost. There are two drummers, one keeps time, the other one interrupts. Sometimes the music stops, leaving the ghost alone. Then they all come back and play rock, take a solo in the empty space. The marching version starts on a dime, and later, when everything collapses, the instruments reconvene in new ways, forwarding the music. The last Bike Song is the sparsest and has the closest singing. This time you can get the story. Hurray has played music in New York since 2002. This is the bands forth LP and their first one with words. Comes with digital download codes for the digitally inclined." - Hurray.
