Marie Davidson’s “Excés de vitesse” Premiere // U.S. Tour Dates

Marie Davidson

The second track off of Marie Davidson’s upcoming LP Un Autre Voyage has dropped, premiering via the one and only AdHoc! Excés de vitesse captures Marie’s unique ability to marry propulsive-sequencing and minimalist sensibilities with potent psychological weight. Utilizing “ruin” as her compositional motif on the track, AdHoc claims Marie “takes the instability of love and deconstructs it, amplifying the sadism to strong-arm a response from the listener…” and we cannot disagree.

In addition, we are proud to announce Marie Davidson’s full-on “Balade Aux USA” tour (translation: Promenade of the USA) which will transpire between 3/13 and 4/25 – first focusing on the Texas-region & SXSW, and then heading out for a full-on West coast tour with BOAN (which includes ex-Medio Mutante members José Cota (Ssleeperhold) and Mariana Saldaña (ex-//TENSE//)).

VIDEO: SURVIVE – “Omniverse”

Omniverse, one of SURVIVE’s most infectious tracks off their recently reissued debut LP, was given a stunning video treatment by Dallas-based artist Sean Miller (who was also responsible for Symbol’s video for Syn Cron). Miller’s uncategorizable visuals compliment the band’s meticulous sound-architecture well, making for a most potent combination that made its premiere recently on The Fader.

Check out the video above / go here for further information on SURVIVE’s debut-reissue HD015LP-540-046-LLR010 / go here to procure a copy of the LP / and here see more of Sean Miller’s work.

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.
