about

No Rent Records is proud to present the monumental new album by Howard Stelzer, a 3-part epic of soaring, genre-resistant cassette-tape music. Invariably Falling Forward, Into the Thickets of Closure is Stelzer’s major statement, a euphoric 2+ hour adventure that mines dub, drone and disco, obliterating tension and torrential tape manipulation.

Over the past several years, collaboration has become a defining element of Stelzer’s work. Invariably… finds him reaching out from the hermetic confines of his rural New England studio, enlisting friends from around the world to help flesh out this portrait of a social world full of vibrant color.

Includes guest contributions from Windy Weber (Windy & Carl), Michael Anderson (Drekka), Stephen Clover (Seht), Peter Wright, Antony Milton, Peter Hope, Bill Ironfield, Elisabeth King, Sarah Hennies, Jeff Barsky (Insect Factory), Tom Smith (To Live & Shave in LA) and Audrey Chen. Art & design by Matthew Revert.
