Sky Stadium- Slanted Glass for Comfortable Future (HIV065)

Slow, syrupy washes of majestic breaths beamed from New Jersey via synth explorer, Jeff Roman. Brief but epic flashes of extraterrestrial clarity.

30 min solid orange cassette with color label. Full color art by Grant Evans with a vellum insert. Edition of 50.

SOLD OUT. THANKS.





Mark Bradley/Wereju- split (HIV066)

Mark Bradley weaves eight tracks together into an electronic ritual that shifts between moments of suspense and tranquility while primitive rhythms emerge from within the machinery. The B side finds Cathal Rodgers slowing things down with a sidelong drone piece that covers similar emotional terrain as the A side before building up to a cathartic wall of noise that fades into a peaceful glimmer.

SOLD OUT. THANKS.





Hobo Cubes/Tidal- split (HIV067)

This outing finds Frank Ouellette’s brand of disjointed electronics and fractured psychedelia laid on extra heavy with ghost dub echo voices panning through lush drones and arpeggiated somersaults. On the B side, Jimmy Billingham emerges out of the acid surf and onto a darkened beach with gulls calling in the distance and blossoms of longing drones swelling all around.

Motion Sickness of Time Travel- Red Tide (HIV068)

Rachel Evans presents her most uplifting work yet. Shimmering drones, minimal pulses, and distant, soaring vocals drift together as if suspended on a breeze.
