  • The next record in the pipeline for Regis's Downwards label is an album called Image Certifies from the darkwave and experimental duo Ora Iso. Image Certifies is the Downwards debut for Ora Iso, who formed in 2011 after Kathleen Malay, an Australian-raised native of Indonesia, moved to New York and met Jason Kudo. We're told the two "immediately formed a symbiotic musical bond, mutually feeding off of each other's defects and general disenfranchisement with the world at large." With Malay now living in Jakarta, and Kudo in New Hampshire, the new LP is described as both "their parting gift to New York City" and "a love letter to a society dying of its own self-induced cancers." Ora Iso first appeared with a self-titled CD-R in 2012, two years before Brooklyn's Ba Da Bing! label put out their first proper album, Bathcat, in 2014. Following Image Certifies' late-April release, the pair plan to link up for some summer touring in Europe and Indonesia. Watch a music video, directed by Malay, for album track "Dead Riot."
