Hausu Mountain Fest ! 1/5/2014 @ Empty Bottle

Hausmo fest 2014 wnur

We’re beyond pleased to present the first Hausu Mountain Festival! (!!) We gathered a bunch of zoners from the HausMo roster and stuck ‘em on a bill with some of Chicago’s deepest synthesists / shredders. The Empty Bottle will be decked out with an additional stage area for easy transitioning between all of the acts – promising infinite atmospheres (realms, even) to dip into from the comfort of your favorite venue. Music starts at 5:30 and ends when everyone has finished. The lineup:

Sam Prekop
Bitchin Bajas
Mind Over Mirrors
Good Willsmith
Moth Cock

Infinite love to WNUR Rock Show for sponsoring this event !!

To generate some additional funds for the performers (some of whom are coming in from the Great East), we’re making a rare# artifact of HausMo lore commercially available to the public: THE ZONES HAT

Another cool thing: the tickets cost a mere $10 !
Can’t wait to see y’all at the Bottle !! Woooo! !
Please refer to FacePlace for more intel or to tell us you’re coming.

Announcing: D/A/D – The Construct – CS / CD

HAUSMO 12: D/A/D - The Construct

We’re so excited to announce our next physical release! Zach Robinson has been one of our best buds and closest musical collaborators for years (we both play with him in a band called The Earth Is A Man). We remember being blown away by his earliest solo recordings as D/A/D, back when his dorm room served as his studio. His first full-length album under the D/A/D moniker, The Construct, demonstrates how far he’s come as a composer, guitarist, and synthesist since those sepia-toned days of yore four-ish years ago. Zach released The Construct online through Rossa Corsa Records earlier this year, and we’re lucky enough to be the ones responsible for its physical incarnation on the 3D universal grid. You can find more info about this release on our catalog page.

The album is available to order now in our e-shoppe, in limited editions of both cassette and CD, and will ship out starting next week.

You can stream the whole album at the D/A/D Bandcamp page, or in the embedded player below:
