BOTR021 - C V L T S :: “Intentions” C19
A hypnotically slow burn caramelizes the compositions on Intentions to syrupy sap. Individual pieces careen wide-eyed through psychic debris. The first seven orders include a piece of raw black tourmaline and all orders ship with a three inch round sticker. Recording causes a heightened state of relaxation. Do not use while driving.

“The dappling of the deer is the sunlight in the glade; concealed from the leopard do thou feed at thy pleasure.”

BOTR019 - HEADBOGGLE & VIBRATING GARBAGE C23
Headboggle & Vibrating Garbage is a resultant fruit of rehearsals in preparation for a 2012 one-off collaborative performance between Bay Area sound artists Derek Gedalecia and Greg Garbage. On this recording we see Headboggle synthesizing Ciat-Lonbarde/ Blippoo and Greg Garbage on MFB/ 606 in addition to largely taking on the role of producer. Side I paves a contorting and writhing visceral slab of sound and the flip-side finds the machines spewing even more disassociating acoustic narcosis. Highly recommended.

Beer On The Rug is delighted to present our latest release, Ghost Hologram, the stately debut from contemporary classical auteur Exael. The album was conceived and produced over the course of six months, Spring and Summer 2012 in Kansas City, Missouri and Wichita, Kansas.

BOTR014 - YYU :: “TIMETIMETIME&TIME” C26 
YYU is preoccupied with time. The looping and sampling musician used it in the title of his record (four times), gives his songs timestamps as titles, and sings about it quite a bit, specifically on the track “yyyy” where he loops his vocals to say ‘time’ for nearly most of the song. This obsession with time isn’t coincidental; instead it gives YYU’s music a sense of urgency and sensitivity. Opener “for hands/ moo.3” feels like waking up lost amongst a sea of endless screensavers, building and exploding in one’s field of vision. “um (don’t be)” is an example of YYU’s emotional intensity, strummed and looped as his fragile voice croons above. “&time” is the (un)holy meeting of natural and digital music: sensitive guitars layer upon YYU’s gorgeous vocals before bursting into a looping jubilee of syllables and drum hits. What makes YYU so special is his ability to synthesize feelings that are completely alien and utterly human. This alliance of natural and electronic sounds sometimes clash and overpower each other, but do so in the most serene way possible.
