Wherefore is Lackthereof (Huh?)

Danny Seim is mad prolific. Seriously. Before he started the acclaimed Portland, OR art rock trio Menomena (in which he drums impressively, and, along with the other two members, sings, writes, composes, arranges, deconstructs, and reassembles), he was the sole, inexhaustible, and promotion-averse member of Lackthereof. Seim still finds time for making Lackthereof recordings, which, over the project's ten year history, have ranged from lo-fi to lush, acoustic to synthetic, poppy to noisy.

FILMguerrero will release a limited-edition retrospective of the work of Lackthereof on October 13th, 2009. Entitled A Lackthereof Retrospective 1998-2008, or I was a Christian Emo Twentysomething this album, the 10th full-length Lackthereof release, contains the best of Seim's Lackthereof work, selected by him from among a decade of remarkable electronic beat experiments, lo-fi indie dub, simple acoustic soundscapes, challenging art pieces, and much more. The record will be available as a limited-edition CD (featuring 20 new original illustrations by Seim) and at finer digital retailer shops.
