FTS001 - first in series of split 12” vinyl releases on First Terrace

Featuring K. Leimer and Like A Villain

First Terrace is proud to present FTS001 , the first in a new series of split 12"s, conceived to bring complementary and contrasting styles from two artists onto one disc. FTS001 sees an experimental veteran go side to side with one of Portland, Oregon’s best kept secrets.
On FTS001, Kerry Leimer plunges us into a tranquil meditation, delighting the head and the heart with warm details, plucked from expansive generative compositions and carefully arranged across four tracks with a deft and knowing hand.

Conversely, listening to Like a Villain ’s composition for the Split Series is like allowing someone to take your heart between their thumb and forefinger - excitement, pleasure, fear and pleading. In this piece she rips through her own pristine melodies like a hurricane, relentlessly and remorselessly circling back again and again until all prettiness is returned to noise.

About the Artists

Like A Villain is Holland Andrews , an extended technique vocalist, musician and performer. Andrews explores the vast capabilities of the human voice, composing vibrant sonic landscapes that are at times cinematic and dissonant. In addition to her solo work as Like A Villain, Andrews has composed and performed work for theatre, dance and film projects and was a vocalist and composer in the recent release of Peter Broderick -led project The Beacon Sound Choir who released their album Sunday Songs via First Terrace earlier this year to critical acclaim.

Kerry Leimer was born in Canada and raised in Chicago before eventually settling in Seattle in 1967. In the 70’s, inspired by artistic movements like Dadaism and Surrealism and German Kosmiche music, Leimer realised the potential of composing with minimal training and scoured pawnshops for cheap or unconventional instruments to compose and record with. With his punk ethos, new age, ambient sounds and experimentations with twitchy dance music, Leimer produced a broad range of records throughout the 70’s and 80’s that made him hard to pin down.
