above: photos from various locations in massachusetts, new mexico, and california (photos by a.t. and f. coloccia).
currently in the works:
-isis: "wavering radiant" album art is now in its final stages - u.s., european and japanese versions will all have different covers and interiors based around the same themes and basic elements. previews of the finished layouts to be posted here soon.
-house of low culture: material is being prepared for an upcoming split 12" with mamiffer , as well as remixes for pyramids and lustmord . also in the works will be a collaborative project project with tom neely called "the wolf". tom is writing/drawing content for a book for which HOLC will create a soundtrack. the finished product will likely take the form of a hard-bound book packaged in tandem with two 10" records - release date is tentative, but we're aiming for summer. all of these materials will be released in one form or another via hydra head over the course of 2009.
-lotus eaters: "mind control for infants", the debut album by lotus eaters (consisting of james plotkin, stephen o'malley, and myself), is finally going to see the light of day on the vinyl format. the album (originally released on CD via neurot recordings in 2001), is undergoing a transformation for its new incarnation. the new version will include alternate mixes of the original tracks, a bonus track not included on the CD version, and revamped artwork. taiga records will be handling the release - please take a moment to familiarize yourself with their fine label if you haven't already.
