There's an obvious chemistry emanating throughout Ohmme's music that's so tangible it can only come from a decades-spanning friendship. Songwriters Sima Cunnningham and MacieStewart formed their unbreakable bond performing throughout the fringes of Chicago's many interlocking communities, collaborating with titans from the city's indie rock, hip-hop, and improvised worlds. But together, along with drummer Matt Carroll, they've stretched theboundaries of what guitar music can do starting with the band's experimental 2016 self-titled EP and their adventurous debut 2018 LP Parts. Now their longstanding partnership culminates withthe stunning and muscular follow-up: Fantasize Your Ghost
Chicago’s V.V. Lightbody coined herself as “nap rock”, but she’s the first to admit how much
her sound is changing. Make a Shrine or Burn It, her much-anticipated Sophomore LP, comes
out May 1st, 2020 on Acrophase records.
Make a Shrine or Burn It is V.V. Lightbody's most deliberate work yet. Much like the title, she
leaves cryptic metaphors behind, delivering songs with a stunning and almost bone-dry vocal.
The album explores the chaos of short-yet-meaningful relationships, anti-jealousy, existential
dread, bliss, anger, and the acceptance of reality. Expect to hear dark acoustic guitars, tight
snares, unhinged Farfisa solos, and in the place of flutes, stabbing saxophones. MASOBI
features cinematic string sections by Macie Stewart of OHMME, whose tear-worthy
arrangements were recently featured on Whitney’s Valleys. Engineered by Dave Vettraino (Lala
Lala, Makaya McCraven, Deeper), the record features some of Chicago’s most talented
musicians who often accompany her on stage.
