True Womanhood: Basement Membranes EP

basement membranes cover

Tomorrow, D.C.'s True Womanhood will finally release its debut EP, Basement Membranes, on the Baltimore-based label Environmental Aesthetics. Recorded in at least three different studios—Brooklyn's Death By Audio, Magpie Cage, and at home in D.C.—over the course of a year, the EP's six songs are caked with haunting sonic gloop. Guitars drone, drums pound, and samples are mangled into a kind of neo-goth fog that would make Tricky a little jealous. Gloom has always factored heavily into True Womanhood's schtick—just check out the early mp3 paired up with this One Track Mind—but Basement Membranes's trippy production takes things a step further.
