Back From Tour / Relocating HQ

Just a little update for y'all!

Tour was amazing and I have lots of recordings/stories to share, but that'll all come in time.  Been back in Florida from tour for a few days now, but currently there is no physical home base for Lava Church.  Hopefully I can find somewhere to set up so I can get to work on this next set of releases.  Got a few releases to plan, a bunch of demos to plow through, and some art to get to work on.  It's gonna be a good summer!  More updates to come.

Lava Church 2 Year Anniversary - Technique 2.0

It has been two years since I started Lava Church, and to celebrate I have put together this compilation covering Technique by New Order in its entirety.  Why Technique?  When I was a teen, a very special person who is now an integral part of Lava Church gave me that album.  It quickly became my favorite record and is one of the reasons why I really wanted to make music for reals for reals.  Without that, I would have never continued making music beyond my teenage years, and thusly would have never created Lava Church.  So to celebrate this, here is it: Technique in its entirety (including a few b-sides) covered by Lava Church homies.  I love you all, thank you for the past two years!  ~ The High Priest of Lava Church

YlangYlang - Last Night Utopian Reveries Overpowered Me c20

YlangYlang - Last Night Utopian Reveries Overpowered Me c20
YlangYlang’s unearthly drone pop is contemplative in its approach on the new cassette, “Last Night Utopian Reveries Overpowered Me.” The songs ask the listener to pay attention as sweeping, distant vocals whisper on while drum beats keep the song grounded. As close as you’ll get to mixing ambient music and pop together, YlangYlang brings the idea of shoegaze into electronic territory, taking the genre’s strengths and reworking it to fit the project’s sound palette.  Get the tape here.

Tile - Anywhere c30

Tile - Anywhere c30
Tile returns to Lava Church with his first full-length, “Anywhere.” The album focuses on themes of anxiety, love and loss, using driving rhythms and pop structures to convey an ethereal message of longing. Taking cues from synth-pop artists of the past two decades, Tile works with the format, treading on the edge of minimalism while still bringing to bear the full impact of his subject matter.  Get the tape here.

Lovebrrd - Resistor c30

Lovebrrd - Resistor c30
Out of the depths comes a frightening piece of work from Lovebrrd, “Resistor.” Dynamical in its use of volumes, Lovebrrd introduces reverb-laden cries for help atop rumbled drones built from his surrounding environments. A master of delay, Lovebrrd slowly builds tension in his tracks as they grow to frightening heights, projecting themes of loneliness and despair.  Get the tape here.
