JODIS "secret house" released

last tuesday the jodis "secret house" album was released via hydra head. took quite a while to finish this one and finally get it out, but i think all involved are pleased that it has finally arrived, and hopefully some others will be as well. above are some photos of the final package for the CD (albeit poor taken ones), a review from british magazine rock-a-rolla, and you can hear a clip here . vinyl is in the works as well, and will hopefully be done by the end of the year assuming production goes according to schedule. the 2xLP version will include an alternate layout rounded out with photos by f. coloccia and a track not included on the CD version of the release.

currently on the road with isis and quite enjoying ireland.

sustenance on the road: zak sally "like a dog", imre kertesz "kaddish for an unborn child".
