Arms & Armour (HIRAM-MAXIM) releases Martin Bisi (Unsane, Sonic Youth) produced EP on June 21
“Open your mind and allow the slow-moving glory of Arms & Armour to take over your reality! Their new EP Into this Wide Unknown is a Swampy Trip Hop journey into a universe where the rainclouds will shower you with sunshine! Lauren Voss’s vocals are enchanting while the music is the perfect backdrop for her voice. I would love to get high, look out my window on a rainy day, and listen to this record. In its own special way, Arms & Armour is heavy while still being uplifting. They create sad music for happy days and if you dig otherworldly sounds this is for you. Oh yeah, “Apostasy” is my jam because it has this really rad dub vibe to it with a No Wave underbelly.”
