In a reaction to the collaboration between Matthew Hale Clark and Ken Camden, both active members of white/light and Implodes from Chicago, their friends and colleagues Jeremy Lemos (from white/light) and Matt Jencik (from Implodes) are also releasing a split record for us. Needless to say that sharing two records with members from those bands we love is a huge honor.
Jeremy Lemos is a real sound artist. He works on many projects as a sound engineer and contributed more recently with Disappears. The 10 minutes epic Out with the Old is a striking proof of modular drones and loop making. As always with Jeremy, heavy and stormy atmospheres meet bright sparks. Matt Jencik is also offering some drone moments. After an introductory piece (Conservative Fucks), Hollow Bodies’ floating glows seem more in peace than those of Jeremy Lemos, but equally ambient. The ideal soundtrack for daydreaming; if only there was a way to activate the “repeat” function on your turntable!
The record comes again in an artwork from Rachel Bloch, in a hand-numbered edition limited to 300 copies, with a download coupon.
