This year, San Francisco electronic music pioneers Gavin and Robbie Hardkiss (who along with the late, much-missed Scott, make up the faux-brothers Hardkiss clan) are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Hardkiss’ seminal album Delusions Of Grandeur. As part of the group’s PledgeMusic campaign—which offers The Hardkiss Vault ’91-’99, containing over 65 songs and over 7 hours music—Hardkiss will be releasing the album digitally for the first time ever on May 25, with the group also performing the album live for the first time ever at Public Works, San Fran on May 30. In support of the campaign, XLR8R has been offered a mini EP of sorts with three diverse tracks from The Hardkiss Vault ’91-’99:the driving acid-steeped “Stationary Tornado-Hawke,” the soaring, atmospheric “Daylight (Dreamerdreamsalone),” and “Champagne Beat Boogie (Vocal Mix),” a sun-soaked body mover. This is a perfect introduction to the pioneering act for those uninitiated and a nice digital surprise for the already converted. You can download all three tracks for free below, with much more available over at the PledgeMusic page.
