MH makes different kinds of music, mostly based on guitars.
If there is a common thread that runs through the decade long existence of Hairy Sands, it is a childlike willingness to let anything be the beginning for a musical idea. Started as an outlet for recording sounds on the fly, Hairy Sands combine intricate guitar playing with layered harmonies, and polyrythmic bass and piano parts. Hairy Sands is Clint Newsom, David Nolen and Danica Newell.
