Kodomo’s cinematic ‘Divider’ out Friday 8/18
Kodomo aka Chris Child’s Divider EP out this Friday displays a more deliberate approach by Chris Child in the composition and production of the material. Mastered by Taylor Deupree, Kodomo’s sound shifts on Divider into something more cinematic without sacrificing some of the driving energy of his earlier material. While previous works were informed by an accumulation of influences like Japanese techno, minimalism, 80’s new wave, the new tracks reflect a more of an outside-looking-in perspective and increasingly cinematic approach.
Portland, Oregon’s favorite science fiction stoner doom outfit Menin is proud to announce its allegiance with San Francisco’s Doom Stew Records to release the EP Lord of Pain on CD and 12″ vinyl September 15th.
Menin’s power has rarely been glimpsed outside of the Pacific Northwest until now. Two drummers, downtuned guitar, and towering bass bring about an involuntary slow-headbang with interlocking polyrhythmic riffs. The unhinged vocals of guitarist Chris Gray serve to further disorient and disturb the listener.
“All My Lovers” features a lighter side to Rosu Lup, full of swirling piano melodies entwined with their signature blend of pop-meets-folk choruses. Impose calls the track “poignant” and a “truly blissful and captivating track.”

He was in his boxers because at his current location, it was 98 degrees in the shade and that’s all he could wear without melting like butter.

He had completed and published the 11th song of his 12 tracks in 12 months challenge. We hope he’s is drinking a cold beer now and relaxing. And we hope you enjoy his track.
