Announcement: Marie Davidson’s “Balade Aux USA” (video) off upcoming LP Un Autre Voyage

HOLODECK is proud to announce Marie Davidson’s upcoming LP Un Autre Voyage (HD033), out 4/14/15 in LP, CS, and DL formats. This is the second time we’ve had the pleasure of working with Marie, the first being the release of her s/t EP back in June 2013. As a first look & listen of Un Autre Voyage we are treated with a (wonderfully strange) music video for Marie’s track Balade Aux USA, crafted in Montréal by Kaspar’89, which enjoyed its premiere on Noisey today.

You can Pre-order Un Autre Voyage on LP / CS at our STORE, digital at our bandcamp. Please call 1-855-SWT-BOIZ (798-2649) for Marie Davidson customer service.

From the prolific cultural epicenter of Montréal, Marie has emerged as one of the foremost electronic artists in contemporary underground pop today. As a long-time member of Les Momies de Palerme, Hotel Monochrome, DKMD, and Essaie Pas, Marie has continued to hone her many talents in Montréal’s fervent experimental communities for much of her adult life. Davidson’s intimate solo work is embodied through a host of synthesizers and drum machines that coalesce in synchronized harmony, punctuated by Marie’s hypnotic vocal delivery, sung and spoken in both French and English. Her third album Un Autre Voyage demonstrates her heightened compositional skill behind a sequencer as well as her singular ability to anesthetize the senses through the documentation of her own serial pattern of experiential growth.

OUT NOW: U.S. Vinyl Reissue of SURVIVE’s Debut LP


Finally, the homecoming has arrived for the 2012 debut LP from Austin-based electronic quartet S U R V I V E. With a new U.S. vinyl-reissue bringing life back to this modern classic, the band’s full spectrum of instrumental synthesizer composition is now available on LP domestically for the first time as of 1/13/15. After an extensive and rare catalog including 12″, 10″, and 7″ EP’s as well as several b-side tapes, the band’s debut full-length remains their most ambitious and defining effort, marking the culmination of several years spent recording, honing, and crafting a remarkably intricate balance of song-writing and experimentation.

Grab a copy of the U.S. vinyl-reissue here. Digital can be had here.

HOLODECK is proud to present this U.S. vinyl-reissue as a joint effort between ourselves, 540 Records, and Light Lodge.

HD015LP/540-046/LLR010 is presented in an edition of 1000 150g LPs on black vinyl, pressed in the U.S. by Gotta Groove Records with reverse-matte 24 pt. jackets (with full flood-black interior print), updated album-art, and black poly-lined dust sleeves.

We are proud to announce that Sungod’s s/t LP (HD027), and our final release of 2014, is now shipping worldwide! The Austin duo of Mike Sharp & Braden Balentine have formed a daunting critical mass of kraut/prog/psych/damaged-folk on their eponymous LP, attracting multiple musical allies from Austin’s experimental circles to form their most honed & massive work yet.

Sungod is limited to 500 vinyl LPs, 200 chrome-plus cassettes, and infinite digital.


PRE-ORDERS OPEN – Sungod s/t LP (HD027)

Sungod preorder

Sungod’s massive eponymous full-length is now open for pre-order at our store! Limited to 500 LP’s and 200 tapes, Sungod finds the Austin-duo at a sonic apex across five expansive tracks, condensing decades into seconds & centuries into minutes. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Sungod operate well outside of time. Their self-titled full-length is the band’s most potent testament to this fact and we could not be more proud to be presenting Sungod in its final form.

Sungod will begin shipping on or just before its 11/11/14 release date.

Out in an edition of 300 vinyl EP’s with hand silkscreened covers, and 200 chrome-plus, professionally dubbed, laser-imprinted cassettes with thick chipboard j-cards with art beautifully designed (and silk-screened) by Montréal-based visual & sound artist Nick Kuepfer.

For more information on the release please go here – to see SLTM in the flesh please check out his US East Coast tour dates with This Will Destroy You & Future Death from Oct. 21 to Nov. 9 here.

…and some kind words for From Ashes Comes the Day:

…a single piece of music created from interwoven ideas that are paraded across the sensory field like sonic vignettes. The music unfurls across two sides of vinyl in emotive bursts that are at times barely detectable and at others devastatingly present. The collaborative spirit that these two share, given that they reside over 3000 km from each other, is invigorating.
– 8/10, Exclaim!

“Melodic phrases from both camps accumulate into a low-hanging vapor and recede as the molecules tug to separate into their most basic textural elements.” – Tiny Mix Tapes

Announcing – Drophead vs. Silent Land Time Machine – From Ashes Comes the Day (HD020/DH005)


HOLODECK is proud to announce & give a sneak preview of yet another release that has roots both in Austin and in Montréal. From Ashes Comes the Day is the result of the alliance between Montréal’s Eric Craven (Drophead) and Austin’s Jonathan Slade (Silent Land Time Machine). For more than a decade Craven has been a prominent member of Montréal’s experimental music community, widely known as the drummer in HRSTA and Hangedup (Constellation Records). His recent solo work as Drophead finds Craven buried in layers of drums and homemade percussion as well as guitar, field recordings, and a vast array of other instruments. Now on Drophead’s vinyl debut Craven’s outsider take on guitar and keyboard assimilates the tenor of Austin’s foremost experimental violist/vocalist and co-founder of HOLODECK records, Jonathan Slade. Slade is best known for his two albums as electro-acoustic solo-ensemble Silent Land Time Machine and his work in the bands Lumens and AMASA•GANA. Together, Craven and Slade push each other into expansive new territory, fully embracing a darker yet broader sphere of expression and emotive depth. The dialogue of tidal chaos and isolation that wax and wane across both hemispheres of From Ashes Comes the Day makes this a highly unique release for both artists.

Video by Mattrix Daytron. Keep an eye out for Silent Land Time Machine this coming October while he is on the road with This Will Destroy You – tour dates here.

Release date October 14, 2014.
