For the first time since it’s release in 2012, Shlohmo’s seminal ‘Vacation’ is seeing a smokey blue vinyl repress via Friends of Friends. To celebrate, Shlohmo releases “Wen 222”, a beautifully haunting single taking inspiration from one of the most coveted tunes in his catalog.
“Sounds like if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record, or Boards of Canada meets Burzum by the River Styx.”
Shlømo is set to drop his latest EP, Avadon, on Wolfskuil Limited later this month. Avadon features two originals from Shlømo, “Avadon (Part 1)” and “Avadon (Part 2),” with a remix of Part 1 by Antigone. The EP will be released on 12″ vinyl and digitally on September 25th, with “Avadon (Part 2)” streaming in full below.
As you may know, LA beatmaker Shlohmo will release a new album, Dark Red, via True Panther/Wedidit on April 7th 2015. You can now watch the official video of lead single “Buried” directed by Lance Drake. The seven-minute affair is described as a “surreal, bloody, and complicated nightmare that takes place on the gritty, blacker than black, abandoned, and desperate streets of Los Angeles, the artist’s hometown.”

Los Angeles beatmaker Henry Laufer aka Shlohmo has announced the details of his forthcoming 11-track second album, Dark Red, which will drop via NYC label True Panther on April 7th 2015, co-released with Laufer’s own Wedidit collective/label.
“It sounds like if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record, or Boards of Canada meets Burzum by the River Styx… I had just lost some people close to me and was dealing with another loved one’s health issues. I was all over the place mentally, and I think it reflects in this record whether I like it or not.” In the press release, the SoCal artist explains that his one aim going into the record was to make it “loud… and not just loud but really really fucking loud. I wanted the sound of the thing to be devastating and violent.”
“Buried,” the record’s lead single, can be streamed below; the updated list of upcoming live tour dates can also be found below.
