  • eric lanham – intercepted ruins – ahem editions

    out of stock

    “Intercepted Ruins” is a long-awaited new document of Eric Lanham’s (Caboladies, Carl Calm) unique brand of abstract electronic composition, his first release since “The Sincere Interruption” (LP, Spectrum Spools/Editions Mego, 2012). This cassette presents two skittering sidelong recordings of luminous and fractured metallic submersion. These pieces were originally created as the soundtrack to a multimedia installation by Robert Beatty that took place in December 2012 at the Land of Tomorrow in Louisville, KY. With the space presented as a holographic hotel lobby these recordings functioned as the mechanics of an alien resort in action–deconstructed muzak emerging from shimmering industrial clatter and still openings.


  • caboladies – crowded out memory – gneiss things

    used copy.
    With great pleasure I would like to announce the newest release by Lexington, KY’s Caboladies, ‘Crowded Out Memory.’ Though this disc was recorded nearly a year ago when the group was still a three-piece, I feel it is one of their most representative and cohesive statements since “Body Tides.” With little use of overdubs, ‘Crowded’ already endures as a musical testament to collective transcendence, only possible within the magic of what is called the Moment or the Now, ie. that instance in live recording/performance when it just clicks. It seems that because of this drive to the Unattainable, comparisons to Emeralds are inevitable, so let me stress that this is wholly different in both instrumentation and arrangement. The songs themselves are reminiscent of the best moments of Fennesz through the calculated untangling of melodic digitalia, sheets & textures and the interplay therein. It is the very music itself that speaks to this Age of Information, where convenience technologies and their widespread cultural embrace place a stranglehold on human-to-human interaction. An emerging recursion to the place where overabundant memories lose significance.
    With that, I leave you with the music- this is an essential grip for all the Liminalist’s out there..
    Mastered by Robert Beatty. Art by Yours Truly.

  • caboladies – s/t – dnt records

    out of stock

    It is with great pleasure that DNT Records presents the self-titled long player from Caboladies. Recorded by the three piece of Chris Bush, Eric Lanham and Ben Zoeller, this collection draws a narrative thread through their past releases on Arbor, Students of Decay, Mountaain, and their own Smooth Tapes imprint. It’s not so much a summation of their back catalog as it is a spotlight on a particularly fluid and holographic area of their sound. The result is a flowing and coherent collection of nuanced electronic mess. A real trip and an excellent demonstration of the Cabo ethos. Re-mastered from the original source materials by Pete Swanson. Artwork and design by Robert Beatty in an edition of 500 on randomly colored vinyl. Pro-printed matte jackets with doubled sided 11″x11″ poster.


  • carl calm – dayglo port – dekorder

    $15.00 Add to cart

    Carl Calm ist the solo project by Chicago citizen Eric Lanham of Caboladies. “Dayglo Port“ was recorded and mixed over two days in the tiny back bedroom of The Fact House (a house Chris and Eric of Caboladies used to live and host shows in Lexington, KY) in the fall with the windows wide open and gear eliminating any floor space.

    In contrast to Caboladies’ extensive jam-heavy explorations “Dayglo Port“ favors a more introspective and rural atmosphere recalling the mood of seminal home electronica classics such as Nuno Canavarro’s “Plux Quba“, Sunroof!’s “Cloudz“ or Microstoria’s “Init Ding“.

    Eric Lanham started playing music in 2006. His then roommate and longtime friend Ben Zoeller got him going and they started playing together. They then added Chris Bush and formed Caboladies. They were enthralled with the experimental music they saw coming through Lexington, KY (where they were all living) and decided to go for it. It started with pedals and feedback mangling and they eventually moved to samplers and synths. They did their first tour in 2007 with Three Legged Race (Hair Police). Chris and Eric moved to Chicago in 2009 and continued Caboladies as a duo. Been grooving ever since….

    Although they are considered one of the spearheading groups of a new age/synth revival scene in the USA along with Emeralds and Oneohtrix Point Never, Caboladies have always been equally influenced by the likes of Francois Bayle, Gil Melle, Bernard Parmegiani, and other acousmatic composers, which clearly sets them apart from likeminded artists.
