hem/sew is a new beat tape, and the first full length assemblage of music after a five year hiatus, from vhvl, the invention of New York City musician and producer Veronica Lauren. An exercise in presence in the ever-transitional now, hem/sew invites us to explore the liminality between opposing forces -- high and low, old and new, light and dark, ebb and flow -- and to move quickly but consciously to the next interval.

Formed of ten parts woven into one, hem/sew thrives in perpetual, introspective energy. Shifting between brooding and sanguine, funky and restful, machinic and biotic, inky and opalescent, hem/sew invites new listeners and old friends back in to vhvl's singular space, where sound does not speak but feels, and in which the listener must hear for themselves, and never for another. Like an edge, a fold, a threshold, this space is not definitively anywhere, and yet it always is there, much like Lauren herself.
