1 - VALLERA, MICHAEL - ALL PERFECT DAYS - (CD) 
DENOVALI


On All Perfect Days, Michael Vallera's second LP for Denovali, he continues to distill his singular, cinematic approach to sound. Acting as both performer and producer, Vallera constructs a lush, deeply emotional album that jettisons the overt rhythms and explicit drum programming that characterized much of his earlier work. Instead, in its tightly focused reliance on little more than guitar and amplifier feedback, supplemented by piano and synthesizer, the album explores a sparse but rich palette that evokes the ambient works of Harold Budd_although filtered through Vallera's own sharp-edged sensibility. Recorded with Greg Norman at Electrical Audio and mastered by Daniel Rejmer, All Perfect Days adds to the mounting evidence that Michael Vallera is among the most assured and compelling artists to emerge from Chicago in recent years. Michael Vallera is a musician and photographer who lives and works in Chicago. Prolific as both a solo artist and collaborator, he has released albums under his own name and as COIN (Opal Tapes), with percussionist Steven Hess as Cleared (Immune Recordings), and with Joseph Clayton Mills as Maar (Umor Rex, Entr'acte). He sings and plays guitar in the experimental rock group Luggage (Don Giovanni Records). An MFA graduate of School of the Art Institute of Chicago, his work has been exhibited in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and elsewhere.

3 - VALLERA, MICHAEL - DISTANCE - (LP) 
OPAL TAPES


An Opal Tapes debut from Michael Vallera of the group Cleared. These works mark the transition between dream and nightmare. Something chilling, perhaps borne of the subconscious's twisted ability to fuck you up, but remaining just out of reach. Subtle perfumes linger in the air and a kind of romantic melancholy spreads, but the overwhelming sensation is of a patient and growing dread.

4 - VALLERA, MICHAEL - VIVID FLU - (CD) 
DENOVALI


"Michael Vallera is a musician and visual artist currently based out of Chicago. He collaborates with percussionist Steven Hess (Locrian) as ""Cleared"" (Immune Recordings / Utech) and with artist Joseph Clayton Mills as ""Maar"" (Umor Rex). His first solo LP Distance was released on Opal Tapes in 2015 after a series of cassettes under the pseudonym COIN.Vivid Flu is the second full-length solo recording from Michael Vallera, and his first on the Denovali imprint. The record is committed to pushing the electric guitar into new territory among a latticework of samples, piano and machinic stutter. The five tracks operate as a fever dream, filled with confusions of space and the cosmic thrum of post-industrial life. The total image is an obscured perspective on something once familiar.Vivid Flu was recorded by Greg Norman at Electrical Audio in Chicago, Illinois. Further EQ and mixing was done with Benjamin Balcom at MINBAL. The album was mastered by Daniel Rejmer (live sound engineer Ben Frost) for digital and vinyl formats.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Vivid Flu 7:00 02. Late 7:34 03. Pollen Blot 5:13 04. Still Life 10:34 05. Drug 7:54
