Dot Hacker

Los Angeles experimental rockers, Dot Hacker are kicking off the new year with a new track titled “C Section.” Clocking in at about six and half minutes of melodic splendor, the new songs arrives from Dot Hacker’s forthcoming album N°3, out January 20, 2017 via ORG Music. The release follows Dot Hacker’s two-part album, How’s Your Process?, which made Grimy Goods Best Albums of 2014 list.

Full of lulling guitar chords and steady drum beats that drive a suspenseful tone, the song comes to life with the emotional vocals of lead singer / guitarist Josh Klinghoffer. Pair that with Dot Hacker’s use of airy textures and sounds, and “C Section” is ready to burst open and swallow you whole.

With the album “mostly recorded during the middle of 2015,” the 10-track album serves as a beacon of hope to deliver “peace, joy, and contentment to the hearts of even one person in these strange, obnoxious and uncontrollable times.” Check Klinghoffer’s full statement about the album below:

“Just a few words to accompany the release of this, what we consider, our third record. It was mostly recorded during the middle of 2015 and as usual reflects a group of people who get the chance to create together in little energetic bursts. For a number of strange, obnoxious and uncontrollable reasons, N°3 is coming out on January 20th, 2017. My initial notion was to write something about how on what may prove to be one of the darkest days in recent memory, here’s a little whiney music with mostly unintelligible singing, but which is steeped in hope, for you to enjoy. I know, for obvious reasons, of the aforementioned hope. Then I thought not to play upon the negativity of the day, or mention it all…then I nearly didn’t write anything.


Basically, for whatever it’s worth, here’s a little more music to throw onto the ever growing pile in the hopes of bringing even a littlest bit of peace, joy, and contentment to the hearts of even one person in these strange, obnoxious and uncontrollable times.” 

Dot Hacker’s N°3 will officially be released on January 20th via ORG Music in digital, CD, and 12″ vinyl formats, including a special limited edition color vinyl. Physical copies of the album can be purchased here.

Dot Hacker has yet to announce a Los Angeles date, but stay tuned to their Facebook for future show announcements.
