Bummer from Berlin-- Tom Carter, one half of Texan psych/drone/folk OGs, Charalambides, has been hospitalized for the past two weeks due to a mid-tour bout of pneumonia. He's currently in intensive care, his condition described as "variable and evolving" and he'll most likely be in the hospital for anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. A fund is in the midst of being set up to help out Carter's family, which is based in the states and will "incur a more than significant financial burden" due to medical bills, travel and housing expenses. In the meantime, Volcanic Tongue is donating all proceeds from Charalambides-associated releases to the cause. Our best wishes go out to one of the finest weirdos to grace music in the past couple of decades.
