Released under his own name, Last Year is a pandemic-birthed album from Christian Hawkins, aka Sybarite. The 14-song cassette is available via his own Here To Go imprint.
Also from Here To Go is the Hard Sleep project, described by Hawkins as "an exploration of texture and stretched-out space with melodies buried inside a pressure that doesn't let up".
As a gift for fans, Hawkins is sharing a 4-song live set from 2002 to celebrate that year's release of the Noument album on 4AD. Includes live versions of
Secropia, Homegrown Cultures, Knot In The Wheel and The Mast.

NEW ALBUM OUT NOW!
Emerging from a decade-long hiatus, East Coast electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist, Sybarite, returns with Waver The Absolute. Following his lone, lush album on 4AD, Sybarite released the odd-and-ends collection, Cut Out Shape, before receding into his studio to focus on soundtrack and freelance work. In 2009 he formed the dream-pop duo, Bell Horses, with Jenny Owen Youngs, and released a leftfield cassette as Christian Hawkins in 2012. The long break from Hawkins’ Sybarite project seems to have done him some good, as Waver The Absolute is unquestionably his strongest and most cohesive work to date. The marriage of the electronic and the organic has been one that Hawkins has expertly manipulated since his days in the legendary Silver Apples in the late 1990s. On Waver The Absolute, he uses his Sybarite moniker to expand and explore that union in exhilarating and rewarding new ways.
The new album, Waver The Absolute, is released by Temporary Residence on October 14.
Pre-order the LP, CD and the limited LP/Loose Hold cassette bundle today (the exclusive cassette features additional songs from the album sessions).
