Ryan Davis from Sophomore Lounge Records in Louisville, Kentucky, sent me these tracks with some info to share them with you.
If you're into psychedelic heavily distorted guitar drone experimental music you HAVE to listen to these songs. Very strange, very dopey, very far out! Enjoy!
"(...) Crowned Regional Sadat X Awareness Project, a split we're putting out between London, England's Hype Williams and Paradise Sisters.
Lo-fi, droney, minimalist guitar stuff in the vein of Lamborghini Crystal/Skaters, My Cat is an Alien, the more instrumental moments of U.S. Girls, and the peaked-out tape tones of Haunted Graffiti.
Beyond the mysterious shroud of grimey, seemingly appropriated, urban-American imagery, not a whole lot is known on our end about collaborative artists Karen (?) and Roy (Nnawuchi, formerly of Graffiti Island), but we're just as happy to have their haunting, hallucinogenic dwellings on deck for the fall.
The split, in addition to its overseas release by U.K. label Ceylan Projects, will be available via limited-edition, hand-pressed CD-R through our webstore and select U.S. retailers on the 27th of October."
IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU HEAR, PLEASE SUPPORT THE ARTISTS!!!

I strongly recommend to check out the free download Sophomore Lounge Family Album, especially if you're into homemade alt. country and other handmade folk and indie music or even hardcore punk. Quite a mixture! (Download here!) My favourite tune: 'Psychomania' by GIVING UP that reminds me of BUILT TO SPILL.
Beautiful and very small label!
