Audial Excursions Into The X Housewife Portraits
20-Track compilation featuring some of our best & brightest.
Hailing from Illinois, Grill Billyenz is known for psychedelic cadences, cryptic wordplay, and the ability to ride unorthodox production. Billyenz continually evolves and mutates, pushing boundaries of lyricism over experimental beats. ‘5’ is a small collection of his most potent concoctions. Chelsea’s Grin contrasts a dark, ominous vibe against an upbeat chorus and intoxicating bassline while warning of the perils in the smile of a pretty girl. Seester is a vibrant ode to Grill’s sister and sisters worldwide. The twelve minute mosiac concludes with Red Eye, the euphoric plateau of this trip and Where We Are, which explores the terrain of the peak. ‘5’, simply put, is trademark Grill Billyenz; surreal lyrics and progressive soundscapes.
Brooklyn via Nashville producer Gustav Baller and Los Angeles based Ian Newman of Handle connect to pay homage to the great Bruce Haack with a holistic musical approach underscoring Haack's message: Everything is up, nothing is down. The whole world is dancing with you. Noisy and wonderful.

Envisioned, inspired, and created with inclination - Adopting the surroundings of abandoned railroad tracks, boarded up buildings, and the buried woods of Missouri as creative catalysts. Dono Dagger's vocals were recorded and captured in a single take while Siamese Sisters' haunting production echoed into the black night. Do not dream of the future, rather immerse yourself in this carnal moment.
Experimental Los Angeles artist Turnbull Green and producer Siamese Sisters merge to create Handle, an exploration of deep crimson awe and the half moon rising voice. Take hold. Produced by Chris Schlarb
Singer-songwriter Shana Falana met producer Karl Marx on the set of a commercial in upstate New York. She came from the San Francisco music scene with a guitar, ethereal vocal pipes, and a penchant for reverb; he came from Nashville with classical piano training, dirty drums, and a bizarre record collection. The combination of these particular elements led to fascinating results: evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and ultimately perspiration.
Doused in impervious layers of drones, haze, and perpetual industrial clamor, Brooklyn based Gustav Baller conducts a sound that cloaks you in modulation like a layer of electronic snow. Inspired by Library music, African percussion, and spontaneous interpolations of experimentation, Gustav permeates the free space, dissolving the walls to reveal the fabric of the universe.
The path to Damaged Goods is not a straight line. Rather a spiral, paved with dialogues of vertigo and balance, visions of hope and despair. Be prepared to have your severed right hand be renewed by the left.
A triptych presentation of a single song that compels both a bellicose and halcyon romance; animating between sweet endearing melodies and a poignant percussive revival.
Improvisation and experimentation reveal truth that reality obscures. This treasury by Siamese Sisters was complied out of a quiet rebellion to return to childlike cognition and energize the fortitude of ones soul. The universe cascades this magic and wonder, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper... Parchemin is your whetstone.
Chesca, from the duo Royalty, hails from Southern Italy and has been a feature on the London boogie-funk circuit since her arrival. Quitzow's vocal style has been described as a triangulation point between the electroclash aggression of Peaches, the melodic richness and cross-genre fearlessness of the Magnetic Fields, and the disco-classical fusion of the late Arthur Russell. Fusing them together produced The quixotic and aesthetic anthem, Naked.
Let us champion the siren of the Strobelight Heathens. Intellectual iconoclasts on a mission to invoke the nightfall with themes of cimmerian love and cosmopolitan paradigms. Lace up your boots and march to a different drum.
