PRESS RELEASE - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DOSSHAUS ANNOUNCES DEBUT DOUBLE 7” SINGLE, PAPER-THIN HOTEL, FROM SYMPATHY FOR THE RECORD INDUSTRY (SFTRI 791).
From Sympathy for the Record Industry comes Paper-Thin Hotel, the debut double-7” single from Los Angeles based artists DOSSHAUS. Known for sculpture, fashion, and installations that present fantasy worlds made entirely of recycled cardboard; Dosshaus has frequently paid homage to the music that has influenced their art. With Paper-Thin Hotel, Dosshaus examines the role of visual art in music.
A collaboration with Sympathy’s Long Gone John, Dosshaus’ Paper-Thin Hotel has the distinction of being the first officially released record to be made entirely of cardboard. In the music industry, packaging can be as important as content. Dosshaus invites would-be listeners to experience the artwork of Paper-Thin Hotel and imagine their own music, thus giving everyone a unique, subjective experience. In the words of Long Gone John himself, “the first time I heard Dosshaus, I knew they had instantly become my favorite new band.”
Paper-Thin Hotel is being released on December 15, 2017 in a limited edition of 300 copies in advance of Dosshaus’ show, titled Paper Thin Hotel, at Corey Helford Gallery in downtown Los Angeles.
PAPER THIN HOTEL April 7 – May 5, 2018 COREY HELFORD GALLERY 571 S. ANDERSON ST. LOS ANGELES, CA 90033
Dosshaus is the creative collaboration of Zoey Taylor and David Connelly, artists whose work blends painting, sculpture, photography, fashion, video, and performance.
