Nadja’s performance at Incubate on Monday September 15 was recorded, mastered, pressed to vinyl, and released on Saturday September 20…somewhat blindly (or ‘deafly,’ so to speak) in that we didn’t get to hear the mix or the master before the looming production deadlines. The LP+CD set, available here is limited to 300 copies and features artwork by Stefan Serneels (whose work you might recognize from our album The Bungled & The Botched).
Also available: Aidan Baker / thisquietarmy Hypnodrone Ensemble recorded live at NK in Berlin on May 2, 2014, featuring the two afore-mentioned guitarists with the three drummers Felipe Salazar, Jeremie Mortier, and David Dunnett. Available on CD here and digitally below:
24-09-14: Jaegerklause, Berlin, DE
26-09-14: Glashaus, Bayreuth, DE
27-09-14: Contain’t, Stuttgart, DE
