A tribute to Sun Ra by Portland electronic artist and percussionist J Morales, also known as ABSV. Eight pulsing tracks of experimental Afro-house, interweaving live and electronic percussion, synths, bass, and piano into an instant basement dance party.

Limited edition of 50 hand-numbered copies. On goldenrod yellow with Taino sun images (in honor of the artist's Puerto Rican roots), custom UV-printed at ColorHaus PrintCo in Portland, Oregon...[ continued ]

Glorious, brooding, and completely in a world of its own. The project of Molly Fischer (of Songs For Moms fame), Hot Tears nods to chamber-folk and a wide variety of punk and metal subgenres without fitting nicely into any box. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

With Erica Freas (of RVIVR) on cello, and a multitude of Olympia all-stars lending voices and studio talents.

Cover art by Jenna Peters-Golden...[ continued ] Hot Tears- Change of Heart
