Took a while to get around to making a web-anything for House of Low Culture, but now there's a bandcamp page with most of the discography and a little info about each of the releases. More to be added when masters for the missing releases can be found in some sort of digitizable form.

There will be a small number of House of Low Culture shows this fall, initial dates are as follows:
09/09 - Chicago, IL - w/Helen Money + Andy Ortmann - 2201 N. Milwaukee
10/24 - Seattle, WA - w/Godflesh, Prurient, Nails - Neumo's
10/25 - Portland, OR - w/Godflesh, Prurient, Nails - Hawthorne Theatre
More dates to be announced shortly. The configuration of HoLC for these shows will be as a duo with Faith Coloccia.
The photo above depicts the scene of new HoLC recording actives - in particular for a new split cassette with Mamiffer. Recording/mixing for the Mamiffer side of the split is also underway in the same location. The split should be ready in time for the Mamiffer fall tour, and aforementioned HoLC dates. There are further HoLC recordings in motion for an eventual LP and a remix piece for JK Flesh, both of which will hopefully be out in some form by late 2013/early 2014.
Lastly, there's now a public Instagram profile for updates/snapshots of various musical and visual projects in which I'm involved - user name is: aaronbturner.

Above: various pieces of the CD and LP layout for the forthcoming album "Nothing Violates This Nature" by All Pigs Must Die. The CD and LP utilize the same basic art elements, but have different configurations/arrangements. I did the layout and illustrations, Faith Coloccia did the type/text treatments. As previously mentioned, there will be some limited prints based off this artwork available in the near future - more on that soon. The CD version of the album is up for pre-order from Southern Lord now, LP coming shortly.
Summer enjoyment: Alison Bechdel "Fun Home", Armagedda "Only True Believers", Daniel Menche & Mike Shiflet "Stalemate", Circle "Suur-Pori", Betynget Af "Knaekkede Stemmer", Aluk Todolo "Occult Rock", Asphyx "Deathammer", Margaret Atwood "Alias Grace", Harry Pussy "What Was Music", etc.
