'husbands' is limited to 500 copies worldwide. the lp comes in a jacket silk-screened by jason urick. also included is a coupon for a digital download of the entire album. those well-versed in the baltimore or experimental electronic music scenes might be familiar with jason urick's band wzt hearts (hoss records, car park) or his solo works as themoonstealingproject. there are similarities to his previous projects of course. those familiar with wzt hearts will feel that the tracks on 'husbands' are in-line with the more ambient pieces that the band produced. ghosted, fragmented melodies, distorted tones and so forth. compared to themoonstealingproject, 'husbands' has more depth sound-wise and the songs tend to take the longer route with tracks averaging around the 10 minute mark each. after spending four years in wzt hearts where all the music was improvised, it was a relaxing and refreshing change of pace to take an idea, let it unfurl, and watch it burn slowly into extended soundscapes. the result is an album that is a complex study in subtlety and one that rewards patience. apart from his work as a musician, urick has been involved in many areas of the baltimore music scene for almost 10 years. his efforts have helped contribute to the incredible music scene that has been in the spotlight for the last couple of years and that same life-giving energy can be felt in the pulse of 'husbands', a piece that brims with subtle complexities and slowly reveals itself with every listen.
