An Expensive Vase is the first of several scheduled albums by Media Them at Recycled Plastics. The sound of Media Them is a unique blend of warm atmospherics and organic rhythms - electronic music reduced to the simplest of loops, repeating infinitely. It is both minimalist and maximalist at once, as Media Them's composition lies not in the makeup of these loops, but rather, the size of the window we're glimpsing them through. Small breaths of melody, heart flutters of bass, snare and hi hat and the coziest bedroom production give way to expanding universes of color and sonic exploration without end. Did that sound just repeat one more time than it did before? Was that other sound even playing since the start of the track? Media Them beckons you to refocus your ears and get lost in a beautiful hypnosis of music and mind.

We've been so obsessed with Media Them music since discovering it, that there is now an exclusive catalog subset reserved only for Media Them records. These albums will be free to download, but super-limited edition CD-R runs of 25 copies each will be available as well. We'd like you to reserve a special space on your record shelf for the Media Them collection - we know that we certainly will.
