Squim, aka chris phillips, is an obsessive recordist living in portland, oregon. in the '90s, he was very active in the underground mail art and tape trading scene -- running the circle x label out of salt lake city and releasing several well-received cassettes on the bobby j. label. this album will be his debut on the vinyl format and was chosen as being the standout from among a half dozen other unreleased albums of recent recordings. on zephyrus, squim blends repeating melodic motifs with his meticulously collaged noise/dronescapes.
this is a limited edition release of 350 copies -- each cover is a unique color monoprint, hand-printed by squim and spraymounted, back covers are a photocopy paste-on. (Mimaroglu)
