Title: Roadless Travel
Format: CD
Label: Art Into Life
Country: Japan
Price: $22.00
"LAFMS musician Joseph Hammer creates unparalleled works of tape manipulation. However, as yet there are comparatively few solo albums by this phenomenal artist. To rectify this situation, Art Into Life has decided to release Roadless Travel, his latest album. The album comes with a dense 24 page booklet of liner notes (essentially a full history of Hammer) by T. Sakaguchi, who has enjoyed a long friendship with him and is the foremost Japanese historian of the LAFMS scene." - Art Into Life.

Artist: HAMMER, JOSEPH
Title: I Love You, Please Love Me Too
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"With I Love You, Please Love Me Too, Joseph Hammer continues his journey into playful yet heavily focused idiot-savant infinite psychedelic inertia. Utilizing consumer audio technology and 20th century detritus, Hammer lovingly decodes his passion for mid-century sci-fi and AM radio stations beyond all point of recognition like a snake charmer. Multi-dimensional audio collage techniques to a freeform and completely unorthodox plunderphonic hypnosis. Baked devotionals for tape loop minds. Joseph Hammer, a sound artist from Los Angeles, has actively created experimental works since 1980 as a member of the LAFMS collective. His practice draws on the complexities of the process of listening and playing, reflecting on the role of the audience versus the performer, and uses music as it influences our notion of time, memory and intimacy as the basis for improvisation and abstraction. In various collaborations, solo, and as a founding member of the trio Solid Eye along with several other projects (Joe & Joe, Dinosaurs With Horns, Dimmer, Points of Friction), Hammer has performed widely and is an influential contributor to the Los Angeles underground scene. The LP is mastered by Rashad Becker at D&M, in a limited edition of 330 hand-numbered copies, pressed on 140g vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press jacket, which is itself housed in a two-tone silkscreened PVC sleeve with interweaving geometric designs. All artwork by Kathryn Politis and Bill Kouligas." -Pan.
