    Q: Why buy CDs? A: CDs sound better than vinyl!
    Let's face it, one of the great myths in the audio world is that vinyl sounds better than CDs. It’s just not true. Compared to vinyl, CDs are able to produce a wider dynamic range and more bass. Plus they don't crackle or skip (unless scratched).

about

Named after the 1988 John Carpenter sci-fi/action film, Whitney Mower’s new project They/Live pays homage to artists of that era (like Kate Bush and Cocteau Twins ) while weaving in sounds, themes, and a powerful female perspective very much rooted in the present (think Grimes, Juana Molina, The Knife). Using ethereal synth lines, intricate drum patterns, and haunting vocal layers, Mower builds complex dystopic scenes. In They/Live’s universe, a vulnerable female character finds power and offers hope despite the ominous landscape of the future, despite the pain of an oppressive past—her precise soprano voice urges, “Yes I know the pleasure’s not enough . . . if you let me I’ll lift you out of the darkness.”

Produced by Whitney Mower and Alex Dupree
Engineered and mixed by Grammy award winner and Khruangbin producer, Steve Christensen.

“Ablation” sounds like awakening from a voyage with a travel machine and getting back in the midst of the 80s. Last, but not least Whitney Mower is a talented vocalist.

“The Utah-born musician takes the vocal skill and passion of a Holly Dodson or a Kate Bush, mixes it with a dash of Italo, and a hint of the brooding sounds of Carpenter Brut to deliver a masterclass in electropop.” —Mark Buckley, Analogue Trash

"From start to finish ‘Ablation’ is a record to put on late at night – but expect very vivid dreams if you drift into slumberland with this piped through your headphones. It feels the perfect soundtrack to lay in the back garden on a warm summer night and look into the night sky – pondering the endless possibilities."
