The day has come to welcome BCDC 009 into the world - OCCONEECHEE HAUNTS + STARING THRU THE WALL by SMLH is now available in our store. A mid-atlantic sweat lodge of growth and fear and memory and noise, BCDC 009 comes printed on hi-fi red tint cassette tape with artwork designed by the artist and photos by Walt Lilly.
SMLH is the project of Samuel McFall Leidig Higgins, a musician based in North Carolina. This is a physical release of two digital albums out in 2015. We we're introduced to SMLH via our friends Sitcom, who came recommended after they played with Samuel in Raleigh, North Carolina last August. We've since found other notably fans of SMLH, including Canadian post punk / indie rock metaphysicists Ought. Matt May of Ought gave us a few good words on Samuel and his music:
Sam and his music (aka SMLH) exude boundless charm and passion. The songs are melodic, confident, and experimental (read: curious/exploratory) in all the right ways. I saw him play in North Carolina on my first proper tour and I haven't stopped being curious about his music since. O' what a pleasure it will be to wear out this tape.
Order the album on our store: cassettes + digital downloads. ;)
