We are proud to announce that Marie Davidson’s 2nd LP Un Autre Voyage is OUT NOW and shipping worldwide in LP, CS, and DL formats! Gathering praise from the likes of SPIN, FACT mag, and many more, Marie’s latest has been a long time coming and we are honored to have been entrusted with its release.
From the prolific cultural epicenter of Montréal, Marie Davidson 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. In 2012 Marie began to unveil compositions under her own name, revealing a solo artist who possessed the confident vulnerability required to write, produce, and perform unaccompanied. 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. Davidson’s 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.
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.
OUT 11/11/14 – LP (500) / TAPE (200) / DL (∞)
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.
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.
Drophead vs. Silent Land Time Machine
From Ashes Comes the Day (HD020/DH005)
OUT 10/14/14 – VINYL (300) / TAPE (200) / DL (∞)
We are proud to announce that the long-awaited collaboration between Silent Land Time Machine (aka HOLODECK co-founder Jonathan Slade) & Drophead (Montréal’s Eric Craven, best known for his drumming in Constellation Records’ bands Hangedup & HRSTA) is now shipping worldwide! 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.
We are proud to announce that Another Language, the 4th studio LP by TX-based quartet This Will Destroy You, is OUT NOW and shipping worldwide! HOLODECK is handling the limited edition cassette – we crafted 500 deluxe tapes with clear “tape-wallet” packaging, full liner-note insert, and clear, pro-dubbed, laser-imprinted, chrome-plus cassettes with gold-ink imprinting. The tapes sound HUGE, just as they must for such a sonically-expansive album as TWDY has constructed on Another Language.
You can grab a copy of the tape HERE.
Head on over to the STORE to pre-order a copy of SSLEEPERHOLD’s 2nd pressing of his crushing debut Ruleth. Orders will be shipping on or around the 2/25/14 repress release date.
Since it’s initial release on Oct. 15, 2013 Ruleth has been warmly praised by Tiny Mix Tapes, Exclaim!, and also appeared on IMPOSE’s Best Cassettes of 2013, Tape Famous’ Most Passionate Albums of 2013, and on Cactus Mouth’s Top Albums of 2013.
As of February 2014 HOLODECK has procured the last remaining copies of Brainclub Vol. I & II, the Austin-based vinyl compilation series curated by Pure X’s Jesse Jenkins and S U R V I V E’s Kyle Dixon (available individually or bundled at the STORE). Brainclub is comprised of rare recordings, b-sides, and singular collaborations between members of Austin’s underground electronic & experimental circles, all gathered together and sequenced onto two custom-packaged 12” 45rpm vinyl pressings. HOLODECK listeners will see many usual suspects (Silent Land Time Machine, Smokey Emery, Thousand Foot Whale Claw all make appearances) as well unfamiliar names and unique collaborative works across the two 12”s: tracks from VC Childkraft (now known as JU4N), a rare live recording of electronic-improv duo Bodytronix, solo work from AMASA•GANA’s Guy Taylor (Dia Bas), Bill Converse, a collaboration between Kyle Dixon and SLEEP∞OVER’s Stefanie Franciotti (Heathen Earth), an alternate version of Thousand Foot Whale Claw‘s Lost in Those Dunes, and a cut from Malcolm Elijah of Silent Diane, amongst other rarities…
