Geo Metro (Aesir AV Collective, Philadelphia) yesterday announced a trio of thematically related full-length LPs receiving simultaneous release across three separate labels: Tiger Blood Tapes (Toronto), V I R T U A 94 records (Philadelphia) and NOREMIXES (Philadelphia).
All three albums are arranged in thematic consideration of the three stages of ascetic contemplation – Katharsis, Theoria and Theosis – as described by Pseudo-Dionysus the Areopagite, a 6th century theologian of minor note.
The work collected across these three albums leaps between extremes of boundary-defying electronica, exploring overlaps and communions between vaporwave, lofi house and analog ambience while remaining perpetually shaded in the hues of the city in the rain – like an ASMR recording of your last rites as read to you by someone who loves you dearly, snapped to a grid.
In physical form, the j-cards of all three albums can be arranged side by side to create a contemplative image of Simeon the Holy Fool dragging his dead dog through the ancient city of Emesa.
Each label involved will be pressing 50 copies of their respective releases to cassette – meaning only 50 complete sets can ever be obtained.
2/21/20 – all platforms, everywhere.
We are thrilled to be releasing Theosis on 2/21/2020. Stay tuned for details regarding pre-orders of the cassette as well as the digital release.
