Season 2 Episode 12: Sim Bartholomew (SEIMS)

Lack the Low

God Carrier

SEIMS & a ton of other rad shit


Have you ever bore witness to the sparking of an amazing friendship: one which will transcend time and space, stand up to the weathering of the ages, and bring mere mortals to the edge of pure wonderment and awe?

Season 2 Episode 12 is one such moment, so hold on and get ready for the ride along with your hosts, Connor and Andrew, and their guest Sim Bartholomew of Sydney-based orchestral-experimental-math-post-rock ensemble SEIMS.

Originally conceived as a learning project, SEIMS' "FOUR" debuted at #7 on Australia's Independent charts following its release in October 2021 and will be featured on the Saturday main stage at ArcTanGent 2022 in Compton Martin, England this August.

Oh, and remember: send memes.

And now for a weird, random connection, or how I was reminded there are few degrees of separation between us and most other things.
We referenced Tachyons+ in S2E10 (Micah Hummel) and in this episode, we talk about Adam Betts, a member of the Squarepusher live band Shobaleader One, other members of which are involved in the band STROBES, who used Tachyons+ hardware to create promo images, music video, and packaging (album art) for their debut LP 

And now a word on Andrew's obsession with ArcTanGent Festival
