Hear ye HausCrew! Andrew Bernstein is back with “a presentation”, his third HausMo album. Composer / saxophonist / multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bernstein has been an essential part of the Baltimore experimental music scene as a member of avant-rock champions Horse Lords. Based in Baltimore for much of the last two decades, he currently resides with his family in Germany. Under his own name, Bernstein composes music focused on the material of sound, typically oriented around the tuning system of just intonation: the selection of notes based on the physical properties of sound which yields frequencies that provide more “perfect” harmonies outside of the capabilities of the 12-tone scales that appear in Western music in idioms ranging from classical / orchestral composition, to mainstream pop, and most everything in between. Bernstein’s work can swell into flights of virtuosic sheets-of-sound overload or stretch individual tones into time-dilating durational exercises that emphasize the relationships between overtones and explore the unique harmonic series that he lays out for each piece.
HausMoZoners! We’ve got a new one from Erica Eso – their HausMo debut!
HausMo Max described this album as “RIYL: Prefab Sprout, fretless bass bouncing around, Sade, music that’s experimental in nature but also your mom would not be annoyed if you put it on in the car with her, Discipline-era King Crimson, melting into a puddle for a little while, the album Aja by The Dan… ***** unless your mom is like a strict old school death metal purist or something, u know”
Let these songs gently carry you into the summer zones:
Wow folks, just wow! We are proud to welcome Chicago-based producer RXM Reality into the very exclusive 4x HausMo album club. Mike – we love you one million billion! With the new album sick for you, Mike Meegan pushes the RXM Reality project into brand new zones along multiple intersecting spectrums. For the first time, he incorporates his voice into his work, employing a series of contrasting vocal styles that complement productions which shine with more finely-crafted details and narrative hairpin turns than ever before. The album feels more progressive and overwhelming than any prior output with its pointillistic beat mosaics and melodic arrangements, taking a few steps closer to some vision of contemporary pop music soaked in adrenaline and ballistic energy.
sick for you comes out on March 25th on CD, cassette, and digitally. We also have RXM Reality merch in the form of long-sleeve, short-sleeve, and no-sleeve shirts on the sick for you Bandcamp page.
Olde HausMo Heads will KNOW about this band, but if you came aboard the mothership in the last few years, Kill Alters is deeply engrained in the HausMo universe, with several Bonnie Baxter solo releases, and with her duo Prolaps.
NYC-based trio Kill Alters returns to Hausu Mountain with Armed To The Teeth L.M.O.M.M., their first full-length album following EPs and tapes including No Self Helps (HAUSMO61, 2017) and Kill Alters (2015). Taking up residence at the intersection of electronics-infused rock, digital hardcore, freewheeling mutant noise experimentation, and incidental found sound culled from bandleader and composer Bonnie Baxter’s decades-old family recordings, the album presents the band’s most intricate and mind-shattering music to date. As in all of their releases, the incorporation of Baxter’s mother’s voice from the tapes in her personal archives serves as a central element of Kill Alters‘ compositions, imbuing their music with added layers of personality and emotional memory and weaving together a story of early childhood nostalgia laced with catharsis and redemption.
Hey HausFam – hope your biscuits are warm. We want to apologize for the dead air on the website for a few moments. We were hacked and turned into an Aaron Dilloway penis pill website for a moment. We’ve worked to get the site more secure and back under our control. No personal information other than our own was compromised, as everything on the site collecting data was either a PayPal link or a MailChimp link. The updates have broken the e-commerce aspects of the site though, and since we were doing just a few sales a year from here, we’ve moved everything to Bandcamp and Discogs. Hoping to remedy this soon! We’ve also taken this opportunity to update some other corners of our website – especially FAQ sections. Thank you for your patience while the site was hibernating.
since we last posted, we’ve released two crucial HausMo albums
Prolaps – “Ultra Cycle Pt. 4: Hibernal Death”:
Fire-Toolz – “Eternal Home [Instrumentals]”:
