Synopsis

Album Description
HIM is largely the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Doug Scharin. A member of the rich Midwest indie scene, Scharin began HIM as a side project during downtime from his various day jobs (including membership in Codeine, Rex, and June of 44). HIM's debut track 'Chemical Mix' appeared on WordSound's acclaimed Crooklyn Dub Consortium: Certified Dope, Vol. 1 (WSCD003) compilation. Since then, they have released several albums on labels such as Southern and Bubble Core. Recorded entirely on a 4-track, Interpretive Belief System marks HIM's return to the same dub techniques that informed Lee Perry's `70s experiments. Scharin introduces new flavors into the mix, however, using cello, live drumming over programmed loops, and treated vocals. The album also features a heavy percussive element and non-traditional world rhythms, which place it in an indefinable time and space. In all its subtlety, Interpretive Belief System is a celebration of sound and rhythm.
