ə Um's Electro-Acoustics, by Thee Um, 2016, is composed of experimental electronic/acoustic hybrid soundworks. The LP begins with the "End of the World" and then moves through some somber soundworks that lay the beginnings tones that act as guiding-lights throughout. Yet, if you where to stop here, thinking you know what this album is about, you would be mistaken, as thee album continues it takes many unexpected and exciting turns as it moves onward with complete disregard for genre and limits towards sonic worlds hitherto unknown. The LP end on a somber but joyful note, closing with soundwork no. 9, "Running to No Where Going Free," after which are two bonus tracks*.
This LP is a process of consciousness expansion and unconscious discovery. All tracks were created in the moment, each tack comprising a soundwork often done in a single take. Random elements are often bound to the soundwork by a process of fusing and slumping which brings each track to bare on its own alterity. There is more to say on this process and what goes into these work, but that will be left for future releases.

*notes on track no. 10 & 11, these last two tracks are bonus tracks: the first of which, "Beef Heart Corruption Blue," might be the funnest and craziest track of all, and closing the LP is an earlier rendition of "Running to No Where Going Free", entitled, "On Our Way to No Where Run".
