Radere - Dreamless

Carl Ritger's project Radere is a welcome addition to all of the artists that have worked with Overlap. Performing at one of our sponsored shows in Oakland last summer, we were lucky enough to hear a preview of what has become his latest full length, Dreamless. Since that performance, he's honed the material and shaped it into five tracks of distorted loops that feel like hazy memories. Dreamless covers a lot of ground, from oscillators + feedback to cavernous vocals, moving beyond "drone" and into more compositional territory. Dreamless is definitely worth checking out, you can stream it in full here

Thilo Frank - The Phoenix is Closer Than it Appears

Cool installation by German artist Thilo Frank. The space is a 4x4x8 meter mirrored room with a swing. "It creates a disorientating moment where the surrounding room translates a physical reflection, translating the viewer's body into an imaginary reflection".

Solicce - Moonsailing

Beautiful new work from Solicce. Tom, Solicce says:

I'd like to tell stories with sound. I love when music is bare and intimate. I gravitate towards acoustic sounds... I sample my voice, the ocean, cars, birds, piano, accordion, and everything in between and then create compostions that just feel good to me.
