Roberto Carlos Lange and Matt Crum record music as ROM. Lange has built a diverse catalog on Asthmatic Kitty Records as Helado Negro, a project renowned for its combinatory approach to vocal pop music and Lange’s magnetism as a performer. As ROM, Lange and Crum assume the role of multi-instrumental studio magpies, fusing the diasporic experimentalism of the tropicália tradition with the immaculate production detail of Brian Eno or Jim O’Rourke. Their sketches unfold in blossoming layers of synth, live drum takes, and stacked acoustic instrumentation – all stitched together over a lattice of burbling samples and electronics.
Available on both cassette and 7″ with album download.
Hausu Mountain is delighted to present the long-fated union of two freak flagships on one slab of vinyl: the Form A Log / Moth Cock split LP. A network of scenes in the US noise underground consider these men and their projects to be champions of uninhibited experimentation, high watermarks of weirdness, and genuinely dedicated human beings. In their performances as Form A Log, Ren Schofield (Container), Noah Anthony (Profligate), and Rick Weaver (formerly Dinner Music) construct maniacal live collages from the playback of cassette tapes. As Moth Cock, Pat Modugno (Khaki Blazer) and Doug Gent (Steel Dangerous) fuse disfigured sampling and electronic processing with live clarinet and trumpet into sessions with few precedents in this sector of the galaxy.

YOU GUYS!!! We’ve come to the top of the mountain to announce-ulate our newest offering (and last of 2015): Eartheater – RIP Chrysalis.
Yep – MM HMMM! RIP Chrysalis drops on 10/20, on cassette, CD, USB key, and all of the streaming and digital marketplaces.
RIP Chrysalis is Alexandra Drewchin‘s second full-length album under the Eartheater moniker released on Hausu Mountain in 2015. At any given moment, an Eartheater composition reads somewhere between a folk song, a musique concrète collage, and a filmic suite fit to soundtrack a cosmic montage that only she can imagine in full detail. Her intricate ballad arrangements rise from standing pools of hi-fidelity synthesis, while her dynamic vocal performances span an untold number of tactics and tonalities. Drewchin builds layered electronic productions possessed of enough detail to constitute stand-alone worlds, each weighted thick with text and texture.
“Metalepsis not only announced a strong new artist, it marked the beginning of an untouchable winning streak that Chicago label Hausu Mountain has kept up all year. “Wetware” begins with Drewchin’s lullaby-like vocals and delicate guitar work before gently lifting off with strings, electronics and disorienting field recordings.” – FACT Magazine
