Above: a couple pieces from the forthcoming LP version of the Khlyst album "Chaos is My Name". Original artwork by Stephen Kasner, logo and design by me. This album originally came out on CD only via Hydra Head in 2006. Should've been on vinyl as well, but it took about 8 years to get that happening. Better late than never as it's an amazing piece of work. It will be available this spring on LP, and there may still be some CDs lingering in the HHR webshop. More specifics on the release date soon.

Thank you.

Currently enjoying: Castavet "Obsidian", "Life Zone" by Simon Hanselmann, Hatred Surge "Human Overdose", Baptists "Bushcraft", Puce Mary "Success", Jessika Kenney & Eyvind Kang "Live in Iceland", Pietro Riparbelli "Three Days of Silence", Aanipaa "Through a Pre-Memory", Inquisition "Obscure Verses of the Multiverse", etc.

There are some new things now available in the SIGE shop:

- Barnett + Coloccia "Retrieval" LP/CS
- F. Coloccia - Book 2
- Newly added merch items, photo cards, etc.

You can visit the store here.

In related news, the Barnett + Coloccia debut album is now streaming on Pitchfork here. The project is made up of the duo of Alex Barnett (solo artist, also of Oakeater), and Faith Coloccia (Mamiffer, House of Low Culture, etc.). Randall Dunn mixed the album, and I did a bit of production work/sample manipulation on it as well. The LP version has been released by Blackest Ever Black, and the cassette by SIGE. There's also a video for one of the tracks from the album by Daniel Menche, which you can view here.

Lastly, the Mamiffer & Circle "Enharmonic Intervals..." album is now available digitally here.

Thank you.
