Sydney Spann - Oceanic/E.L.M.

(December 2021)

Reading Group is very happy to present Oceanic/E.L.M., the third solo record by New York-based sound artist Sydney Spann (b. 1994, Baltimore). Sydney’s previous recorded work has appeared on Ehse Records, She Rocks!, and live work has been commissioned by Issue Project Room. Oceanic/E.L.M. is a meticulously assembled passage through various half-inhabited interior spaces, a dreamlike series of rooms and corners that teeter on the edge of sliding into nightmare. Strikingly detailed but always understated, spilling into uncanny pools of song that dissipate into accumulated layers of dusty wallpaper. A really fascinating and strange document.

CD with letterpress sleeve featuring drawings of a sleep paralysis experience by each of Sydney’s four younger siblings.
Very limited edition of 50 copies.

CD - Sold out.
Digital through bandcamp
