I first came to know of Implodes when my old pal and founding member Matt Jencik sent me a link to check out their original demo a few years ago. The lush forest of fuzz, reverb, and delay was something I was immediately drawn to, and itís been wonderful watching them evolve as a band through their two full-length releases with Kranky Records, Black Earth in 2011 and Recurring Dream in 2013. In 2015 I am honored to work with Matt (live bassist for Slint and Papa M), Ken Camden (who has two solo albums on Kranky), Emily Elhaj (of Angel Olsenís band and of Chicago band Mayor Daley), and Justin Rathell (of Chicago band El Mejor) to release a new 12″ EP containing two unreleased tracks from the Recurring Dream sessions with two newly recorded tracks. Although the works originate from different recording sessions these songs mesh beautifully, forming an overall warmth that travels through the groupís signature forest of dense fuzz. A weaving river of somber rhythms and subtle melodies makes the songs blissfully easy to latch on to while they remain deeply rooted in the worlds of drone and ambient. Tracklisting: 1. OUT OF REACH 2. LAZY SKULL 3. DONíT LEAVE THE HOUSE 4. REVERSER RUN TIME: 20:43
