7 & 7 : VOL. 1
FEMME / SUNK HEAVEN / JEPH JERMAN / SOMNOROASE PĂSĂRELE
7 & 7 is a double 7″ vinyl box set series that was published as a subscription in three limited edition volumes from Fall, 2020 to Spring, 2021. Each volume contains exclusive material by four artists/groups on two 7″ records with an art booklet and download code, lovingly packaged in reclaimed 7″ audio reel boxes with repurposed vintage wallpaper covers. The subscription has run its course, but all three volumes are still available!
Volume 1 of the series features a bewildering side of 10 interlaced roulette groove miniatures from French synth duo FEMME (featuring members of Opera Mort and France Sauvage), a performance of melting intensity by NYC’s SUNK HEAVEN, a hand-mangled cassette recording by JEPH JERMAN (from a group improvisation with Tim Barnes, Bill Hutson, and Ted Byrnes), and kaleidoscopic jitter from Romanian outfit SOMNOROASE PĂSĂRELE.
The full three-volume series also includes material by Theoreme, Alan Courtis, Street Rat, Saboteuse, Andrea Pensado, Rubber (( ) Cement, Jeff Carey, and Comfort Link.
