Waterloo Records

2013 release. Few albums have had studios built for them. Circuit des Yeux's Haley Fohr and Cave's Cooper Crain erected USA Studios in Chicago's Little Village neighborhood over a few weeks in January 2013 for the two months of recording sessions that make up Overdue. Fohr's fifth LP under the name Circuit des Yeux weaves a sonic Bildungsroman, documenting the transition from collegiate cloister in pastoral Bloomington, Indiana, to the noisy, haggard Chicago South Side. Even with the hand-constructed baffles and grandmother-sourced quilts thickly covering the walls (and, intermittently, a light crust of sloppy snow), the sounds of Little Village are literally embedded in the recording. The strains of nearby norteƱos pierce the floorboards and the elevated trains murmur just a few dozen feet from USA Studios' flawed sanctuary.
