David Bachmann and Nicholas Flandro (aka Univore) are back with a new project, "Beasts From A Silk Womb". This is the creative duo's third project, and each have been very different. This project is a "loose interpretation of the modern and traditional mythologies of the end times, as predicted both by societies’ deliberate or incidental adherence to cyclic cosmology and by the frequent overzealous portraits of the rapture phenomenon put forth by multiple religious sects". Interested, I was. Clocking in a just 34 minutes, this project is truly unique and fascinating. You can stream the whole album here.
Univore is currently creating a short film to coincide with the album.
"Five of a Kind", our, Mutts, second official video from the album Separation Anxiety, was directed, filmed and edited by Ian Scott McCullough. The point of having kids playing a graphic game of "Cowboys & Indians" was to unsettle the viewer. Many deep-seeded divisions in our society still exist - and the root of the problem is barely addressed due to our complacence that "it's getting better." But there is much more to do, and this video is intended to rattle us out of consciously and subconsciously passing down habits of intolerance.
We apologize if the narrative is painful for those who’ve lost young loved ones to senseless violence. But hopefully the positive message will win out, and this video will compel more people to "cut the strings" that bind us to segregation and hatred. Also attached is the last track from Separation Anxiety. It leads into our next release - Object Permanence - an unplugged album available on April 2nd, with the Chicago release show at the Hideout on April 4th.
