Ezra Buchla/Whitman split 7″
Ezra Buchla has been active and influential in Southern California’s music scene for years. He’s gone from fronting the spazzed-out rock group The Mae-Shi, to collaborating with Erika Anderson (the artist currently known as EMA) to create the sultry yet uneasy project Gowns. Now he’s broken out on his own to explore new territory. At times collaborating with the likes of Corey Fogel (Gowns), Daniel Brummel (Ozma), and others, Buchla is as poignant and powerful as ever. This is his vinyl debut with this venture and his contribution comes in a nearly five minute soundscape of viola, synth, and his unique vocal stylings. It’s both chilling and unforgettable. Whitman is arguably a equally influential figure of the Southern California wasteland who has continually been performing and releasing recordings for the past ten years. This split follows hot on the heels of his last full length, “Dog Rose Gall”, which Buchla produced. His contribution is a slow and eerie crawl of guitar strum, cello, and haunted vocals. Limited to only 330 records (110 on transparent red vinyl and 220 on black). Records come in hand screen printed chipboard jackets with artwork by Fletcher Tucker and include a lyric sheet and digital download.
