Artist: DRMWPN
Title: Bright Blue Galilee
Format: LP
Label: HBSP-2X
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
Silkscreened covers, edition of 200 copies. "Over the past 3 years, DRMWPN (pronounced Dreamweapon) has gradually evolved to become the premier band operating at the nexus of the many divergent strains of experimental music in Chicago. Originally intended to be an outlet to showcase the more Dionysian improvisational impulses of the core members of Town & Country (Ben Vida, Jim Dorling, Liz Payne, Josh Abrams), DRMWPN has grown into an amorphous collective that at any given show may include percussionist Michael Zerang, The Cairo Gangs Emmett Kelly, Califones Jim Becker, vocalist Dan Mohr, Million Tongues Festival impresario and rock historian Steve Krakow (a.k.a. Plastic Crimewave), pedal steel and guitar player Sam Wagster, or any other number of Chicagos free rock/jazz/experimental luminaries among its ranks. Drawing on a shared knowledge and love of minimalism, ethnic devotional music, jazz, rock and improvised ecstatic sound, DRMWPNs sublime live sets are augmented by the flickering hallucinatory generations of their Bryon Gysin-designed dreamachine." - HBSP-2X. Featuring Josh Abrams (guimbri), Jim Dorling (leslie, voice, electronics), Steve Krawkow (banjo), Mahjabeen (kalimba), Dan Mohr (voice, organ), Liz Payne (upright bass), Adam Vida (cymbals), Ben Vida (electric guitar), Sam Wagster (lap steel guitar) and Michael Zerang (drums).

Artist: FACTUMS
Title: Roman Soldier
Format: LP
Label: HBSP-2X
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Three-piece unit FACTUMS and Captcha (HBSP-2x) Records, of Seattle and Chicago, present Roman Soldier, a multi-dimensional sonic experience of cinematic beauty. The first decaying hit of this record sounds like the approach of an apocalyptic army overheard from the inside of an insurgents desolate cave. Suspense builds as the cadence of the piece accelerates, the twists and turns of its theme provoking high anxiety and cold sweats. As tension climaxes and the sonic assault begins to fade, sounds evocative of dazed contemplation suffuse the aural space, creating an impression of crystalline clarity that might be reminiscent of an introspective montage, replaying the last conversation you had with the one you love. In its primal minimalism, calculated chaos and transcendental ambience, this record presents an opportunity to abandon the banality of modern life and lose yourself in the complexities of your imagination. The Roman Soldier EP follows up the exquisite release Flowers on the Sacred Bones label, arriving in advance of the highly anticipated release Gilding the Lilies. This record, featuring an etching on the reverse, is being produced in an edition of 500 copies and will not be repressed." - HBSP-2X
