Artist: CIRCUIT DES YEUX
Title: Overdue
Format: LP
Label: Ba Da Bing! / Lewis + Lynn
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"In 2013 CIRCUIT DES YEUXs HALEY FOHR and CAVEs COOPER CRAIN erected USA Studios in Chicagos Little Village neighborhood for the two months of recording sessions that make up Overdue. Founded with the acquisition of a one-inch Otari MX-70 tape deck and a vacancy in a friends apartment, the studio endured hundreds of hours over its brief flash of life. Overdue weaves a sonic Bildungsroman, documenting the transition from Bloomington, Indiana, to the Chicago South Side. Even with the hand-constructed baffles and grandmother-sourced quilts thickly covering the walls, the sounds of Little Village are literally embedded in the recording. The strains of nearby norteos pierce the floorboards and the elevated trains murmur just a few dozen feet from USA Studios flawed sanctuary. The songs rise above the din, however-full orchestrations and damaged hallucinations alike. Fans of Fohrs prior, more experimental work are not catered to with this immeasurably more sophisticated new effort-but nor will they, or any other listener, be disappointed. Hand-assembled and silkscreened LP limited to 500 copies." -Ba Da Bing!/Lewis + Lynn.

Title: Ode To Fidelity
Format: 7"
Label: Destijl
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"3 new songs from Haley Fohr. Seemingly inspired by something or someone that has pierced her young, little heart, Ms Fohr has established herself as one of the most ambitious songwriters (for anyone whos taken the time to actually listen to her previous efforts). These sounds form a part of the arc that I doubt has apexed. This single will echo between yr ears till the new full length is complete, surely a monster in full." -Destijl

Title: Portrait
Format: LP
Label: Destijl
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Portrait is Haley Fohrs third LP and a massive step in her growth as a musician and artist. While pursuing a degree in recording and ethnomusicology she has become proficient in the studio. The result - radically unexpected qualities of cohesion and hi fidelity posit Portraits narratives in a space that weve yet to experience. This sort of playing the game in the way that the game is usually played, I think is usually called a sell-out. And had her intent faltered to the slightest degree that conclusion might be apropos. But its merely an effort to strip the canvas bare and get face to face with things. And its Haleys intent that continues to be championed, as it has endured the acts of recording and performing and yet still stands strong and pristine. The rare qualities of strength and character can only be attributed to a rare artist. The modest, clarion sparkle of Portrait would not have been expected, or even achievable, considering the arc of Symphone and Sirenum, and it stands as a cornerstone and a monument, a testament to the daily practice of channeling her 21 yr old, roiling emotions into sound recordings." -De Stijl

Artist: CIRCUIT DES YEUX
Title: Sirenum
Format: LP
Label: Destijl
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"From a small town in the middle of the land of milk and honey, where the air is filled with the blossoming of the fruit trees for a big part of the year, comes these perfect little lilies of bands that make perfect little records that reflect this fertile and flowery region. its a timeless land, and making records there is possible during this surely short period of history wherein the youth of this era feel as if theyve solved the mystery of life and love and its really loving that is the answer to everything. all of which has nothing at all to do with circuit des yeux and sirenum, which was made in indiana, and there arent exactly pipers at the gates of lafayette. sound? its the sound of "issues", and the sound of "troubles". you dont get but one phone call and honey, the girls voice makes this message a bit rubbly anyway. take the manic snorts of captain liberty, dissonant as chalk and the next moment as melodic as sharp yet slick, metal teeth. take the mermaid, 1988, turn the tides, gently, gently away. selected breath / silences / selected feedback. take an argument you have here with an empty street while the memory of high traffic is leaking back. sirenum has a real "spiritual food" vibe and its fucking pain and pleasure relief in this real met en zonder sort of way. this world is her world, and pipe if you like it ..." -DeStijl

Title: Symphone
Format: LP
Label: Destijl
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"the arrival of circuit des yeux symphone, from the small, fresh sigh?of haley fohrs wings, has been one of the most unexpected,?pleasurable gifts bestowed upon on us in recent memory (and were?already blessed). blurred and bold with husk and chutz, there is an?obscured narrative route to her work, and the songs of symphone emerge?with an emphasis on chronology rather than thru decisive lines of?development. its like journaling (but no blog). whatever teh intent,?the thing is a subtly kinetic creature honoring the most basic,?earthy, and archetypal cycle we have. it doesnt sound like this, and?it doesnt sound like that. her very individual expressions are marked?by confident force and a gentle subversiveness, and their effect?unfolds slowly. like snakes dangling round a medusa head, wrapped in?blood, wool, and other things. yum. herein lies the dreams. (its no)?trash ! (go pick it up) .." - Destijl. Limited to 150 copies.

"HALEY FOHR follows up her cult LP on De Stijl and appearances on the Die Stasi curated XXperiments compilation (as both CDY and as one half of CRO MAGNON) with the haunting Fruition 7-inch. This EP finds her exploring more accessible song territory than previous outings while still retaining that late night, under the bridge Jandek loner vibe that made her previous work so striking. The A-side finds right alongside contemporaries like Zola Jesus or US Girls, while the flip find hers doing a torchy folk number that showcases her voice in a way that no previous work has. Hand-numbered edition of just 300. Green vinyl in a glued pocket color sleeve with silkscreened vellum obi strip." - Dull Knife.

Title: CDY3
Format: 10"
Label: Magnetic South
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
2013 release. “The cryptic vision of Circuit des Yeux becomes ever more formed with this minialbum. Whereas the oft solo Chicago-based Haley Fohr is backed with a tourlearned combo to push these three songs into maximal view then, off into obliteration. Yet, the focus remains Fohrs haunted, mournful melodies, where the edges of her voice twist toward inner conflict and white light aggression, and intricate feedback architecture of her guitar playing. In this near anthem rock mode the songs become a liberation from the cacophonous orchestrations fashioned throughout Symphone and Sirenum and the isolation of last years Portrait -- all full-lengths on the De Stijl label. The retelling of “Im On Fire” and the new "Lithonia" are classic structures filtered through Fohrs Romantic spirit and an emotional weight not far from Catherine Ribeiro or Peter Jefferies. The B-side “Helen, You Bitch” is a smudged, concrète-purposed solo that builds with drums and more guitar until the end. Recorded at the all analogue Magnetic South in Bloomington, Indiana, this 300 edition 10-inch is the studios first widespread release on its in-house label after previous titles from Apache Dropout, Learner Dancer and Tammar. 10" record housed inside of black and white cardstock foldover sleeve with b/w insert.” - Magnetic South.
