warmth Warmth (LP, £15.75)label: Arbor
Even though WARMTH main man STEEV THOMPSON still appears to be incommunicado, totally epic recordings continue to surface. Before ROXANNE JEAN POLICE was officially over and Steev still lived in Chicago, he joined up with another then Chicago resident BRANDEN DIVEN of Quilts/American Grizzly Records. The jams that were created filled a couple of CDRs and the Warmth side of the split with Quintana Roo on Not Not Fun. This LP consists of a remixed and edited version of the original CDR running at just under 45 minutes. Forgotten smog floats through a Northside basement. Sounds emanate but their source is totally unrecognisable. Quiet growing tonal blobs erupt into washes of aural colour. A complete union of samplers, synths, vocals, guitar, organs, percussion, and electronics merge to create the sounds contained within; a loss of individual existence. Completely serene. Pressed In an edition of 300 LPs on creamy yellow vinyl with hand-stamped labels in pro-printed and screened fold-over sleeves with art by ROY TATUM and an insert by Steev.
