Emily Elhaj, bassist in Implodes and Mayor Daley, what she's obsessed with. Her answers are . . .

Holy Other and the Tri Angle label London's Tri Angle label seemed to materialize from out of nowhere, but after a few releases in 2010—Clams Casino, Holy Other, oOoOO—it was at the helm of a burgeoning glitchy, organic-electronic sound. Now Tri Angle's product is hard to find. Stateside distribution is reportedly in the works, and I'm looking forward to buying Held, the new LP by Holy Other (who plays the Empty Bottle on Sun 10/7), along with some records I slept on the first time around.

4AD and the Pale Saints I recently re­affirmed my love for 4AD thanks to some friends who host a DJ night with me at the Charleston. Because I'm knee-deep in the Cocteau Twins, Bauhaus, and Dif Juz, I was surprised I hadn't been introduced to the Pale Saints sooner. I've had "Sight of You" on repeat and I'm working on getting the LP The Comforts of Madness. The visual aesthetic provided by graphic-design group 23 Envelope contributed to the greatness of 4AD's 80s catalog, which contains some ambient and shoegaze necessities.

Robert Beatty Catching the Public Works gallery's Storm Thorgerson exhibit reminded me of another graphic designer who deserves recognition: Robert Beatty. He's the go-to guy for underground album art, and his work is striking and instantly recognizable. Crafting visuals for cerebral and interesting contemporary music appears to be his forte; he's worked with Peaking Lights, Burning Star Core, Ga'an, Raglani, and Gary War, to name a few. He also performs and records with Hair Police and Three Legged Race, among others, which makes him a DIY mogul in my book.

Mayor Daley play Ono's record-release show Wed 10/31 at Quenchers.
