November Batch.


Brainworlds- •••• (HIV069)

Fellow Dirty South visionary and astral voyager, Mason Brown, takes us deep into the cosmos on these two constantly shifting, sidelong improvisations. Soothing tones give way to rhythmic pulses before shifting into slippery washes of bliss.

Astral Reflections (excerpt) by Brainworlds

62 min solid white cassette with black and white label. Black and white art by Mason Brown. Edition of 55.

Brian Lavelle- Two Ostensions (HIV070)

Scottish sound artist, Brian Lavelle, crafts two of the most honest, beautiful, enchanting pieces of music probably ever to grace the Hooker Vision catalog. The simple, organic melodica phrases are continuously being built upon with layer after layer of sonic embellishments, ranging from burbling synthesizer to soaring theremin.

Quiet Evenings- Cascades (HIV071)

Grant and Rachel Evans return with a new take on the QE sound philosophy: new directions in minimal synth zones, sans guitar. And for the first time since their debut cassette, Burning Bridges, vocals have been stirred back into the celestial cauldron.

Mitchell Turner- Célestes Rivages (HIV072)

These three beautifully decadent gems from Mitchell Turner are actually remixes of Berio and Stockhausen works. Unique poetic waltzes, slicing and reverberating like a slow rain of syllables, dripping bright notes into a dark pool of soft silence.
