LOV 86 


A split single featuring Washington, D.C.’s ESCAPE-ISM and LIGHT BEAMS. Escape-ism is called "the found-sound-dream-drama", "the grieving widow of rock 'n' roll", the "press play and run away group". The strrrripped down sound machine starring IAN SVENONIUS of CHAIN & THE GAMG, THE MAKE-UP and NATION OF ULYSSES. Its a single occupancy combo, a one banana bunch, the gestural rock 'n' roll provocation which combines cave person poetry with beats and melody translated incorrectly from hieroglyphs found in arch-pharaoh Cheops' triangle shaped record collection. Escape-ism is a bid at inciting longing for a past behind an IRON CURTAIN, and hope for a future in flames. Light Beams began in 2015 when JUSTIN MOYER (PUFF PIECES)—-influenced by '80s-era freestyle music and Sheila E.—started playing sampler and timbales with SAM LAVINE, the longtime drummer of D.C. hip-hop mainstays the CORNEL WEST THEORY. With the addition of bassist ARTHUR NOLL, the resulting polyrhythmic melange, sometimes called "zap-tone" or "block rock," reinvents late-20th century dance-pop using the tools of the 21st. Includes a download with an extra track by each band.
