about

As a project, The Binary Marketing Show has existed for over twenty years, welcoming collaborators in, meditating on the unknowable and human's place in the natural world. For over half those years, Bethany Carder and Abram Morphew have headed up this ever-evolving musical entity of electronic and acoustic sounds.

The tenth volume of our Selected Songs series focuses on this pairing's time at the helm and the broad range of sounds they've helped usher into the world. Gathering work from their full-length albums, EPs, split LPs, and collaborative appearances, "Somehow We'll Grow Into Some Overlapping Oak" highlights the more song-like side of their often collage-like approach.

Existing on the outskirts of experimental pop, indie electronic, singer-songwriter, and electro-acoustic composition, the songs on this volume push and pull between the familiar and comforting to the unfamiliar and off-kilter, simultaneously catchy and strange.


REVIEWS

"The more of this I hear, the less it conforms to easy description...Not sure how I missed them for the last decade and a half, but it's time to play catch up." - The Wire

"a glimpse into the fluid, experimental world of The Binary Marketing Show...a sound somewhere between Trouble Books and Cloud Cult in its experimental yet emotionally engaging tone." - Various Small Flames

"The various sounds, instruments, melodies, and overall atmosphere are so enjoyable. It is like looking at a colorful painting with so many colors and tiny details that keep popping up after closer observation." - Start Track
