Type design “Capitale” by Benoit Santiard

Chicago’s Ukranian Village is home to a fabulous independent label which goes by the name HBSP-2X. This record by DRMWPN was recently released in a limited vinyl edition run of just 100 copies with silk-screened sleeves. And bonus points for band name vowel removal as well as sigil appearances. Safe!

Originally intended to be an outlet to showcase the more Dionysian improvisational impulses of the core members of Town & Country (Ben Vida, Jim Dorling, Liz Payne, Ben Abrams), DRMWPN has grown into an amorphous collective that at any given show may include Michael Zerang, Emmett Kelly, Rob AA Lowe, or any other number of Chicago’s free rock/jazz/experimental luminaries among its ranks.

See the label’s site for purchase info.
