Erinome drops dual experimental electronic releases
Months in the making, Aaron Hansen’s experimental sound project Erinome saw a pair of cassette/digital releases this month on ambient Chicago label Neologist Productions. Transfigured and Second-Floor are Hansen’s second and third releases this year.
Transfigured is a slow building eight-track LP with rich texture and a booming finish. Second-Floor is a two-track drone LP, which he recorded with cassette player. Both songs eclipse the 30-minute mark. Hansen told us in June that parts of the record took more than a year to complete. Both albums are now available via Bandcamp and Neologist Productions.
This week, Hansen curated a vast playlist of electronic, ambient and neo-classical music for blog Headphone Commute. It includes an original, unreleased track called “The Bells,” as well as an excerpt from “Lowfolk 1985.” Stream his playlist here.

Super Ghost explores moody lo-fi territory with new demo tape
Omaha’s Super Ghost releases a new demo tape today that explores the moody, quiet territory of its post-rock genre. Sultan Of Swat: Lo-fi Cassette #1 is 15 minutes of twangy, spacey recordings that often recall a further-warped Hail To The Thief-era Radiohead (hear “Scatterbrain” in opening track “Babe Ruth.”)
The quartet is currently at work on a new EP, McFly, which will contain more typical Super Ghost offerings in the vein of recent single “Railroad Spikes.” Yet, as the tape’s title suggests, this may not be the first of the group’s exploratory outputs.
“I feel like right now as a band we’re walking up to the plate, pointing up at the sky, and calling where we’re going to hit the ball to,” says frontman Jake Newbold.
Listen to Sultan of Swat below — out now on We’re Trying Records — and grab one of the limited 40 copies at any upcoming show. They play Milk Run December 11 with blét, Justin Ready and the Echo Prairie and Kansas City, Kan., band Pamona — RSVP here.

Endor red band trailer released

Endor is the second feature film from Gum, who will co-direct with screenwriter Faustus McGreeves. In both of his directorial endeavors, Gum has been very inclusive of Nebraska musical and theatrical talent.
