A few artists have had studios built for themselves—Jimi
Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studios a notable example—but
certainly few albums have had studios built for them. Circuit
des Yeux’s Haley Fohr and Cave’s Cooper Crain
erected USA Studios in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood
over a few weeks in January 2013 for the two months
of recording sessions that make up Overdue. Founded with
the acquisition of a one-inch Otari MX-70 tape deck (modded
to 8-track) and a vacancy in a friend’s apartment, the
studio endured hundreds of hours over its brief flash of life.
Fohr’s fifth LP under the name Circuit des Yeux (her
fourth to see release) weaves a sonic Bildungsroman, documenting
the transition from collegiate cloister in pastoral
Bloomington, Indiana, to the noisy, haggard Chicago South
Side. Even with the hand-constructed baffles and grandmother-
sourced quilts thickly covering the walls (and, intermittently,
a light crust of sloppy snow), the sounds of
Little Village are literally embedded in the recording. The
strains of nearby norteños pierce the floorboards and the
elevated trains murmur just a few dozen feet from USA
Studios’ flawed sanctuary. The songs rise above the din,
however—full orchestrations (“Lithonia”) and damaged
hallucinations (“Acarina”) alike.
Fans of Fohr’s prior, more experimental work are not catered
to with this immeasurably more sophisticated new
effort—but nor will they, or any other listener, be disappointed.
