The two years between albums saw Hailer grow exponentially as a live band and as songwriters. Although the psychedelic rock/pop influences of the band’s debut album Good Canyon are recognisable, Another Way is a sizeable departure. From the paranoid and dark "Spooky Clams", to the acoustic sentimentality of "Bright Lights", the joyous and upbeat “Anyway I Can” and the raw power of "Blue Star" and "Postcard", the mood of the record shifts with songs taking on multiple personalities fused together by atmospheric motifs.
Throughout 2012 in Sydney, the band took the clocks off the walls and allowed time for experimentation in Pete’s studio compound. Progress was rapid - spirits were high. Until Pete, who engineered the album, badly broke his shoulder. Delays to livelihood and album ensued by way of surgery, sling and analgesics.
A recommendation from a friend in New York City led them to Nick Stumpf, musician and producer whose credits include French Kicks, Caveman and Coke Weed. Mixing began in August 2012 and the collaboration was seamless.
It’s a heady concoction, a swirling, intoxicating body of work that is literate, mature, confident and completely addictive.
