**INSTOCK NOW** Karen Gwyer is a London, UK producer raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Debut album 'Needs Continuum' was released in Feb 2013 through No Pain In Pop. It's a deeply personal homage to classic house and deconstructed psychedelia built on organic cyclical rhythms and tempered synth washes. Dazed and Confused called it "impressively unusual and poignant.. a uniquely dark, brooding and slow-burning masterpiece", FACT Magazine "an intimate and beautiful record", and it was released to acclaim following the birth of her son.

Whereas “Needs Continuum” was a largely intimate record, “New Roof” lead tracks ‘Lay Claim To My Grub’ and ‘Missisissipippi’ are monolithic pieces; more mechanistic and weighty compositions than Gwyer’s previous work. Both vocalless 15 min+ tracks are built from a tough analogue-techno template, with Gwyer’s distinctive impressionistic synthstrokes sitting above the pulsing rhythms. ‘Nail Bars Of The Apocalypse’ is the ambient break between the two, a coo-ing necessity of an interlude. Much like Gwyer herself, it’s borne from a place within listening distance of Detroit, the Midwest noise scene, and NYC’s avant-house heyday.

The “New Roof EP” release comes following a summer ’13 white label remix EP through No Pain In Pop - “Cowboys (For Karen)”, credited to NYC visual artist and producer Torn Hawk (L.I.E.S Records) - and a winter ’13 cassette EP of original productions on UK experimental label Opal Tapes. Karen will play shows across Europe through January and February as part of the Opal Tapes 2014 tour.
