The Current Crop : Summer, 2015

Christian Michael Filardo
Impression [cassette]
[SP-38-CS] $5

Minimalist drone compositions from modular synth master and visual artist Christian Michael Filardo.  Stark, textural pieces that evolve over side-length explorations of raw analog synthesis.  J-cards printed in black on heavy duty black paper with black text on transparent window labels over black cassettes. Buy here.

Sacred Fire [7"]
[SP-40-EP] $6
Heather Nicole Young (formerly of Social Junk) recorded the material on this EP years ago while living in Philadelphia.  After a long delay, Spleencoffin is proud to finally bring these vaulted recordings to a proper vinyl release.  Fans of Heather's solo work will not be disappointed: Sacred Fire features characteristic minimal, jagged guitar chords, saturated percussion, and Heather's distinct voice -- all blanketed in controlled feedback sweeps and a generous supply of delay.  On the flipside, Ghost is more of an environmental piece, with paired voices (one effected, one bone dry), field-like synth sounds, and a faint low end pulse riding just below the surface.  A crucial 7" addition to HNY's untarnished discography.  Edition of 300 copies printed in silver and black. Buy here.
