From the Archives: Though they only have a few releases to their name, Greenup Industries is a label to watch and the first indication it was something special began with their inaugural release, "Unknown Species" by Loud and Sad. The album is a collaboration between Joe Houpert and Nathan McLaughlin and they hit on many leftfield styles of music while obscuring and delineating them at the same time. "Unknown Species" holds tape-mangled folk tropes and lab-based computer music next to banjo reveries, almost like if a series of Jim O'Rourke's releases were abstracted and slowed to a crawl. Loud and Sad may be a new name to some, but their affinity for spiraling rustic melodies and resplendent electronic textures is timeless. – Ryan Potts, Experimedia
The duo of nathan mclaughlin and joe houpert, understated collection of electroacoustic textures and compositions evoking wide-open vistas, memories of airports, early morning rainstorms, and splashes of sun. Limited to 150 copies for the world and mastered by James Plotkin.
