Listen to “The Thrashing Whip



Self-produced and recorded over a period of two years, the new full-length album from California duo Some Ember is the culmination of a range of experience for these two wanderers. Some Ember is rich with meaning, sonic creativity, and emotional energy, a striking evolution from previous releases Hotel of Lost Light and Asleep in the Ice Palace. Here, cold synthesizers and harsh industrial beats dominate the A-side, while swirling drone and organic percussion characterize the unique second half. The exceptional voices of Dylan Travis and Nina Chase balance the record, their melodies anchoring things firmly in the pop realm.  Thematically, Some Ember explores the emotional contours of the perilous, exhilarating era in which it resides: channeling the free, open skies of California; cataloging the oppressive grip of technological obsession; the deep contradictions inherent in life under the shadow of a crumbling post-colonial empire.

  • include download code
  • black on black cassettes

Many years dreamt, one cold winter realized, Haunted Hearts is Dee Dee Penny (Dum Dum Girls) and Brandon Welchez (Crocodiles). It is not the melding of two bands; it is a true collaboration.

The duo’s first full-length album, entitled Initiation, was written in the winter of 2012, holed up in their apartment, surrounded by a lot of books, Motown and krautrock. It was recorded by Jon Greene at Electric Orange Studios in San Diego, mixed by Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink / Violens) at Static Recording in Brooklyn, and mastered by Joe La Porta at Sterling Sound in New York City.



Check out the video for “Johnny Jupiter” directed by Scott Kiernan below.
