MEDIA JEWELER's debut LP, $99 R/T Hawaii, aims to capture the relentless restlessness of being alive on this increasingly weird and overstimulating planet. It was recorded and mixed in a casual and really quite nice three-day session during the dawn of spring at Machines with Magnets by Seth Manchester and Keith Souza (BATTLES, LIGHTNING BOLT, etc.). It was mastered a week later by XOQ (LIARS, FACTORY FLOOR, MARTIN GORE, etc.).
HEAVY DREAMS, the latest loud-lyrical-pop-rock project of Chicago musicians EMILY KEMPF, SISSY NICOLE and SARAH QUILLIN, has quickly become a something of a favorite around these parts. It's been called "minimal, lo-fi pop music" by Reviler, but explodes at the seams when being released into the wild, live settings of this here rock club. Don't miss your chance to witness some unhinged magic here tonight, friend.
Potential Language is the debut album from ONLY, a solo project of Edward Hamel collaborating with evolving members. Combining EDWARD's background as a composer of contemporary concert music and electronic composition, the music on Potential Language features a string trio comprised of violin, viola and cello as well as a flutist adding textural layers to a foundational voice/guitar structure with interwoven electronic processing.
