Tape Tuesday: Pye Corner Audio – Black Mill Tapes Volume 4:Dystopian Vectors

The label’s proprietor has publicly stated that it would be nice if some people ordered something besides (or at least along with) this new tape from Pye Corner Audio. We would also strongly recommend that you pick up something else along with your order, as long as your order does indeed contain the Black Mill […]

Tape Tuesday: Fluisteraars – Dromers

It’s still snowing in Minneapolis, so we are still listening to black metal (as if a lack of snow has ever stopped us). Fluisteraars hail from the Netherlands and craft blackest metal of the epic variety (i.e. the shortest track on Dromers is over 8 minutes long). Vinyl will hopefully land stateside at some point, […]

Tape Tuesday: Expo Seventy – Closet Full Of Candles CS

Justin Wright, the hardest working man in drone music, has just re-released a tiny edition of 50 of Closet Full Of Candles, a tape previously only available on tour. These will be gone in a flash: exposeventy.com or exposeventy.bandcamp.com.

Predatory Light – MMXIV Cassette

Updated 03/24/2014: Second press now available from psychicviolence.bigcartel.com and predatorylight.bigcartel.com. In this week’s don’t-sleep-on-it Monday morning news we present to you the tape debut of Predatory Light. A day earlier than usual, but seeing as how there are only a few handfuls of stock left – we would like to encourage you to pick up […]

Tape Tuesday: Further Records

So there’s a new tape drop from Further Records, featuring an assortment of mind-bending electronic sounds. For our money, it doesn’t get much better than the high-definition new age transmissions of Vagon Brei, but then there’s this anonymous tape from “someone who’s been on the label before”… hmmm. Go throw some money at furtherrecords.bandcamp.org.

Tape Tuesday: Existential Cloth Returns

It’s been over a year since we have heard anything from Existential Cloth. That’s a long time in tape years, where most labels flog multiple releases every other month and burn brightly but quickly. Existential Cloth seems intent on keeping it slow and steady. This label has always kept it a little darker than most, […]

Tape Tuesday: Orange Milk

Orange Milk is a label worth keeping strict tabs on. Great releases, great artwork – about as reliable as it gets in the tape game. And the odd vinyl edition certainly doesn’t hurt either. It looks like we are at least 5 releases deep into 2014, and everything is looking lovely. The three releases below […]

Tape Tuesday: Kevin Drumm – Shut In

This Kevin Drumm tape is sold out at the source, and while it certainly isn’t cheap, it certainly is Kevin Drumm. And that’s nothing to take lightly. If you feel the need to plunk down $15 to secure yourself a copy, then we we will not be the ones to judge you. We say go […]

Tape Tuesday: Portal Cassettes

We love tapes. We love Portal. Just been waiting for the two to form some sort of unholy, warbly analog alliance. Parasitic Records serves up all four Portal full-lengths on Tuesday’s hallowed format. Seepia and Outre are shipping already; Swarth and Vexovoid are available for pre-order. You can order them in pairs for a discounted […]

Tape Thursday: Six Organs of Admittance – The Lost Electric Six Organs Album

I’ll make this short and sweet since there are only 11 copies left at silvercurrent.bandcamp.com and presumably only a handful in the distro over at fusetronsound.com. As the title implies, this is a “lost” recording from Ben Chasny with Comets on Fire as a backing band. If your head didn’t just explode into a supernova […]
