My Favorite Sunday Morning Album: Dot Hacker – Inhibition

Sundays are about winding down after the weekend and preparing for the week ahead.  They almost always consist of a bacon sarnie, if not a whole fry up, and the Sunday papers.  Being from the UK, we are massively into our Sunday fry ups as they’re often needed to mop up the leftover alcohol from the night before.

My Sunday AM album is Dot Hacker’s Inhibition.  To be fair, this is one of my favourite albums of the past few years and is not exclusively a Sunday album but I thought I’d share it with you all the same!  Featuring ten fairly lengthy tracks, Inhibition is the perfect display of innovation in music, not just rock music alone.  Each track is as delicious as bacon (I love bacon) and as a full album, it’s just stunning.  I can’t rave about it enough.

The album is available in all usual formats but my format of choice is this beauty.  The pale blue swirls of the vinyl conjure up an ethereal vibe which is definitely echoed by the album itself.  Featuring Josh Klinghoffer of The Red Hot Chili Peppers as a leading man on guitar, vocals and piano amongst other things, this slice of heaven is quite tough to describe.  Each song contains poignant lyrics and is entirely different from the previous one, leaving an album which is difficult to describe.  Swirling riffs with angelic vocals leave for the perfect record to soothe away your troubles and prepare you for the week ahead.
