Theta/Hum of the Druid split tape
Their first release in seven years, Theta’s offering for this split is a 17-minute survey of dystopian wreckage. Concussive blasts of manic electronics and tape loops colliding with frantic guitar noise. This track was recorded in Oakland, CA at the infamous Terminal venue in preparation for Theta’s only live performance at the MAPS fest in 2017. Hum of the Druid’s superb contribution to the tape is derived from source material recorded in 2007-2009, mixed and assembled in 2018. Roiling mechanistic operations orchestrated into a monolithic, meditative sprawl. Featuring cover artwork by Ryan Ludlow and Eric Stonefelt, with layout by Stonefelt.
