Artist: FACTUMS
Title: Gilding The Lillies
Format: Double LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Double LPs tend to make quite the statement. The proof is in the pudding, as they say. Just listen to classics like Trout Mask Replica, Double Nickles On The Dime, Lake, Twin Infinitives, Harsh 70s Reality....well, Factums have thrown their hat into the proverbial ring with Gilding The Lilies. This mythic release has been rumored and debated for some time and to say this is their crowing achievement is an understatement. Factums have been shrouded in mystery, rarely playing live -- this hermetic Seattle/Chicago combo have been releasing rustic/futuristic artifacts for a variety of labels over the last few years. On Gilding The Lilies, all the ideas come together: sci-fi surf rock, post-apocalyptic murder ballads, musique concrète anthems, hell, on Gilding The Lilies they even dedicate the latter half of this masterpiece to Far Eastern exotica and incorporate sitars and tablas. Yeah, this aint no Beatles trip, its a Factums take on their inner chakra or pith helmet exploitation or whatever the kids are calling it these days. Limited one-time pressing of 700 copies." -Assophon

Artist: FACTUMS
Title: OST: A Primitive Future
Format: LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Primitive Future indeed! Its 4000 a.d. and human kinds fate from a binge of manifest destiny has finally collapsed on itself. Now were back to the basics. The jungle is in charge again. The Factums have crafted a soundtrack to this dark and mysterious place. A world where the listener is the prey and this record is the hunter. This is exploratory music, a melding of rusted out kraut debris, dead c. carnage and lost in time sci-fi rock moves. edition of 400 copies." - Assophon

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

Title: Flowers
Format: LP
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Flowers" is the latest full length from Seattles bleak and ominous Factums and is their second for the Sacred Bones label. Recorded between 2006 and 2007 but only now seeing a proper release, "Flowers" is dark and disturbing. The album has twenty two tracks that fluctuate from sound collage to soundtrack-esque moments as well as more structured songwriting. This album also has flashes of abrasive electropunk that has garnered them well-deserved comparisons to Chrome, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle and much of the early Wax Trax catalog." -Sacred Bones.

Artist: FACTUMS
Title: Alien Native
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: US
Price: $13.00
"FACTUMS are a contempo three-piece hailing outve Seattle who claim to have ties with (i.e. include former members of) A-FRAMES and THE INTELLIGENCE. Originally released as a CD in 2004, Alien Native shows a band burrowed deep in the mystery and menace of the nascent gnarl of experimental art rock. Imagine a record collection consisting solely of The Residents Fingerprince, Chromes Alien Soundtracks, and Cabaret Voltaires Nag Nag Nag. A blast from any of these records could clear a house back in the old days; now they fill it. Fortunately The Factums dont operate on such a binary plane. They are capable of resorting to either option, depending on the time and place. Alien Native is a great swab of past-sounding electro-junkoid rumble absorbed into the mind and matter of present day pre-analog excavators. Limited vinyl-only pressing of 500 copies with hand-screened jackets." - Siltbreeze.
