Released in cooperation with SDM Records, The Vardaman Ensemble's 'Is Land' is an album based around a future documentary, 'Badvugum: Everything’s Imagined Here' (out in 2028 and directed by Martin Denny), which explores the historical narrative of Badvugum's main island, Lahrir, and the island's inhabitants living in a world imagined into existence. Without words, The Vardaman Ensemble wind through post, kraut and prog rock, stoner metal, minimalism, noise, and fusion while featuring heavy, start-stop guitar riffs, sax, French horn, strange noises, and incredibly precise percussive work. Get the album and a limited-edition coloring book exploring story of Lahrir at this show, where Sea Moss will also open.
