Tape Tuesday: Bad Body – Do You Know I Live?

‘Do You Know I Live?’ is the newest tape by Bad Body on Tombed Visions…and its a weird one. The good kind of weird. The kind of weird that spans two side lengths movements of late night vibratory drones, industrial scrapes and sing-song-spoken word vocal work that somehow manages to creep you out and win […]

Tape Tuesday: Former Selves – Three Wells

Still bummed out from the grips of winter? Lucky for you, Former Selves have dropped a new tape of billowing, gauzy drone on the Polish label Wounded Knife just in time for Spring to, well, spring. On ‘Three Wells’ gentle synths and guitars dance on the breeze that blows throughout these two side long movements. […]

Tape Tuesday: Night Cleaner – Sketch for Winter III: Green Sleeves

We now have the third installment of Geographic North’s “Sketch For Winter” tape series—this time featuring Matthew Allen Lambert’s (of All The Saints) moniker Night Cleaner.

Tape Tuesday: Blood Room – Habitus

Indole Records from the UK has been doing some really rad stuff with their releases.

Yeah, its cold out—we know. The weapons we recommend for battling the elements? Lamps, coffee, plants and this new batch of zones from Tranquility Tapes.

Tape Tuesday: Jackie McDowell – Language Of The Birds

Jackie McDowell (aka Inez Lightfoot) has a new tape that is ripe for the picking. Dusty harmoniums, autoharps, drones, voice and, of course, birds make ‘Language Of The Birds’ a folk recording in the truest sense of the word… but one with an esoteric twinge to it that un-grounds it in a most enjoyable way. […]
