The Only She Chapters MySpace Amazon 

Following 10+ years and 7 albums at the forefront of hiphop and avant rock, most recently mixing, co-producing and touring with Daniel Lopatin (Oneothtrix Point Never, Games) and collaborating with the likes of TV On The Radio, Ghostface Killah, Battles, Mos Def, José Gonzales, Blonde Redhead and Zach Hill to name a few, Herren's compositions and interactions have clearly helped to shape the sonic palette of independent music.

Hear clips from multiple tracks here:

The live front has seen Herren undertake several major tours in the last year, including stretches with long-time friend The Gaslamp Killer, as well as Neon Indian, and most noteworthy, working with the Polish Ausko Orchestra - reinterpreting his own material for classical arrangement.

This evidenced Herren's move into modern compositional work, which brings us to The Only She Chapters - a body of music closer in spirit to esteemed modern compositional pieces, rather than a record built fundamentally around beats and loops. The vocals of a number of renowned female musicians have been woven into the album's fabric, including Zola Jesus, Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond and the late Trish Keenan of Broadcast amongst others.

As well as these vocalists all offering their entirely distinct textures and incantations to the already unorthodox musical tapestry, the idea of the album-as-female symbol has extended to collaborators on the visual front, enlisting illustrator Yuko Michishita and photographer Angel Ceballos. Says Guillermo: "This record is a weird one for me. The process features all women vocalists and voices and the music was recorded very differently from how I normally work. This can be seen as a departure from other albums but it's not a departure intended to leave people feeling alienated or baffled. It's just a different way to interpret my music and it's an open invitation for anyone that wants to listen."
