Chances are, you've been in a photograph by Karina Natis. You might not know it. You might not know her. You might be a flailing limb, a shock of falling hair, drowned in a swath of light, capsized in a pool of sweat, blood, or beer. But you're there.

In June, Karina was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's B-cell Lymphoma, manifesting as a six-inch tumor between her left lung and heart. After 18 weeks of chemotherapy, her tumor has all but disappeared, and a final month of radiation treatment will hopefully cure her for good.
Like so many thousands of people in this country and many of us in the underground music community, Karina is uninsured, and the cost of the chemotherapy alone extends into the tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention the numerous surgical procedures needed for access to the tumor site and the weeks spent recovering in-hospital.

We're thrilled to announce that some wonderful people (who also happen to be fantastic musicians) have stepped forward to donate their time and talent in an effort to help stem the flow of the enormous cost of Karina's treatment. We invite you to join them in giving back to Karina, who has shared so much of her artistic gift with us and the Chicago DIY community at large. An incredible audio-visual lineup has come into being, bringing musicians and artists from all corners of Chicago together to make sound and light in celebration.

We are proud to present:
Pandava (featuring members of Quicksails, Chemtrails, and Mines)
Arvo Zylo
Dead Dragon Mountain (members of Sunsplitter)
Instinct Control
Wish Fulfillment

Delirious Music for Delirious People reviewed by My Lovely Figment/Dictafawn label


  Holy shit. 

 This is easily one of the best and, dare I say, most relevant compilations I've heard in the past few years. Not only does this comp have some head-turning artists to make it well worth the purchase--Big City Orchestra, Boyd RIce, fucking CONTROLLED BLEEDING and WOLD(!)--but a lot of the acts on here that are unknown, at least unknown to me, are truly exceptional; The Cenitmeters' bizaare [i guess] new wave-ish sound, Pharmakon's intense power electronics and even the charmingly goofy, vintage spook show-esque opening track by Hans Grusel's Krankenkabinet, just to name a few, stand out amongst the waves of either mediocre or just plain shit things I've heard from other artists in these general categories. 

 More importantly, this compilation isn't confused like other compilations tend to be when presenting a variety of different styles; no, this compilation knows exactly what it wants to present and comes out exactly what it intended to be: delirious music for delirious people.

 Smashing work, man.

333 gets 3 new reviews

Memory Wave Transmission

..."at times, the rhythms shift from music to noise, with little strands of static and percussive elements keeping a hold of the ideas, or at other times, bass-heavy beats and stuttery staccatos create a march of sound. It’s easily the best showcase of 333 because of its length, but it’s also a good song altogether, and 333 could have stood on its own with just this track."

Gumshue Grove

"Either way I’m voting yes. FUCK YES. Adjourned."
