TODD W. EMMERT

A New Normal

(Chocolate Monk - CHOC.401) CDR $7.00

Part hot shot of life-affirming glimmer, part wounds-cleanser, and, in the words of Emmert himself, part “quick postcard to people who are suffering from traumas and there is no way out. That’s what the title means: finding a new place to rest inside yourself, because all previous normalcy was destroyed by trauma…. There is no fixing things….” Numbered edition of 60.

A Summer’s Day And Night

(Chocolate Monk - CHOC.390) CDR $8.00

No one makes being a visionary seem like an attractive career more than Todd W. Emmert. His beguilingly unassuming compositions slip through the cracks between the cosmic binaries — your yings and your yangs, the bottom of the aboves and the tops of the belows, the magic hours of twilight and dusk. A Summer’s Day And Night oozes with sacred perspiration wrung from the garments of the children of the supreme hypno-void getting dizzy on an interstellar merry-go-round. Four opening tracks lull you into a false sense of New Age security, better than any vegan restaurant hold muzak, before Emmert goes full ghost story and bakes your head into a wax unagi pie replica in the galley of a Unarius UFO with a series of heavy, scalp-striating distorto drones that have every right to take up entire album sides. A fine, fine distillation of “splashing” and “down.” Huff it. Numbered edition of 60

Devil's Return

(Therapy Tapes - #11) CDR $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Another masterpiece by the visionary behind Inspector 22. Infusions of loops, psychedelic structures, non-traditional instruments and techniques, and alienology take Emmert's home-recorded space-folk into new levels of the afterworld.

Hitchin’ A Ride

(Therapy Tapes - #13) CDR $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

“I listened in my morning haze and thought it was [Emmert’s] best work yet,” says Caleb Mulkerin of Big Blood. “The … songs [capture] a southern Joy Division and the instrumentals … range from weird music box lullabies to cockroaches pouring out of the cracks in the walls right after the bomb went off.”

Innocence Of The Antichrist

(Therapy Tapes - #14) CDR $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Experimental folk music for the Spider God and Her followers. In Emmert’s allegorical tale of “someone” born evil trying to make good, there is beauty in existential dread and lullabies for invisible girls. The noise of ending with a question instead of an answer.

The latest and greatest in avant garde experimental folk that Asheville, North Carolina, has to offer. Includes a cover of Spacemen 3’s “Come Down Easy.”
