ANT’LRD – ‘EXTRA DOMICILE’
Collage bliss from Chicago’s Colin Blantonn. Beautiful and chill vibes on Extra Domicile. It’s like if Blantonn sets up dreamcatchers around the world’s bedrooms. He finds those who are having nightmares and soothes their souls with a warm and comforting blanket. The focus is texture, not so different from a Monet painting or an out-of-focus photograph. Chrome tape in blue shell. Pro-dubbed and printed with butterfly assemblage. Limited to 75.
THANIEL ION LEE – ‘AMBIGUITY MAKES THE CONFUSING NORMAL’
How does someone make something both ambiguous and also to-the-point? Somehow Thaniel Ion Lee manages this in the cleverest fashion. When artist Lee makes music, he specializes in sublime, minimal black drone. Metallic tones and angular counterpoints dot his thoughtful compositions. Ambiguity Makes the Confusing Seem Normal is a mirror to what you want it to be. Perhaps bleakness is light and vice versa. Remember Thaniel Ion Lee’s name- as he seems to know some useful secrets- and he’s telling you about them all right here. Just look. Chrome tape in purple shell. Pro-dubbed and printed with butterfly assemblage. Limited to 75.
JANE JANE – ‘THE EDUCATION OF MY RUBBER DOLLY’ EP
Carnivalesque dusty pop explorations from Jane Jane. Seemingly inspired by their recent transplant to New Orleans, Michael Arcos and Courtney Asztalos cook up a most delicious soup of grime, lounge, tragedian folk and bent lullaby with the ep The Education of my Rubber Dolly. Shedding their skin as Jane Jane Pollock, we have spellbinding croons for our ears and love charms to put in our pocket. This is a new manifestation of the Jane story. Here a bearded woman whispers where we’ll find a lost carousel in the kudzu-infested wood. After eating strange fruit, days later we wake up sunburnt, and we both don’t know what happened. We don’t have our wallets or passports, and we don’t even remember our last name. Whatever the case, the way Jane Jane reinterprets pop is always delightful. Cobalt tape on gray shell. Pro-dubbed and printed with butterfly and paper assemblage. Limited to 75.
