Implodes - Reverser [12'']
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 it's 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 Olsen's 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 group's 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.
Reverser will be presented as a 45 rpm 12? with a download code
included. The album was mastered by Chicago Mastering service
and pressed by Gotta Groove Records in Cleveland, OH. It is
limited to 375 copies on black, opaque purple/pink blend, and
transparent gold vinyl.

soundscapes that are as atmospheric, otherworldly and starkly
beautiful'' - Drowned in Sound
