EMPEROR X - OVERSLEEPERS INTERNATIONAL VINYL (LTD. ED.)
LIMITED EDITION BLACK VINYL
Release Date: 5th May 2017
Only 450 pressed. Berlin-based American Chad Matheny has been releasing music under the Emperor X moniker since 1998. His recordings and live shows fuse the punk songwriter tradition of Billy Bragg with the experimental tape loop minimalism of William Basinski and reveal incurable obsessions with transportation infrastructure modernist literature and lo-fi Chicago house tracks. A former chemistry teacher math tutor and physics graduate student Matheny left the academic world and has spent the past decade travelling across North America and Europe performing several hundred concerts along the way. Oversleepers International is rooted in his nomadic existence and highlights his unique take on music perfectly.
