Tape Tuesday: Jesse Osborne-Lanthier & Robert Lippok — Timeline

Geographic North, in their non stop efforts to release some of the finest experimental music that exists, have dropped “Timeline” on us in our hour of need. The Osborne-Lanthier/Lippok duo’s work is a minimal affair of misty textures hovering around electric charges that dance on air to the beat of a broken drum. It pulses […]

Tape Tuesday: Astral Spirits — Batch 6

There aren’t a whole bunch of tape labels (that we know of) out there that are focusing primarily on free jazz, but there is one that does it quite well and that would be Astral Spirits (which is a division of Monofonus Press.) Their newest batch contains works from Kid Millions & Jim Sauter, Taco […]

Tape Tuesday: HIRS – 2nd 100 Songs

You know what…lets get real about a good ol’ fashioned grind tape for this week’s installment of Tape Tuesday. The title of this trans/queer thrash collective’s recording pretty much says it all. 100 (101 actually) tracks of blistering blastbeats, unsettling samples and (somehow?) :00 long songs. Fans of ANb, Hellnation and, well…Nirvana, should take note. […]

Tape Tuesday: Céleste Boursier-Mougenot – From Here To Ear

When Oval’s “Oh” EP came out a few years ago, were you bummed that there weren’t actually birds playing all that craziness? Well, you weren’t alone. The good news is that the fine folks behind the Cassauna Tape Company have issued Boursier-Mougenot’s installation of 70 Zebra Finches playing Les Pauls on cassette for proper home […]

Tape Tuesday: The Snowfields – How To Get Good Sound From A Dead Ear

Ever find yourself jamming some old Pink Floyd records and think to yourself “I wish this weirdy synthy interlude thing would just go on forever”? Well, The Snowfields are going to help you out with that. Their new tape on Field Hymns offers up two sides of meditative movements that build and build and build […]

Rob Mazurek – Alternate Moon Cycles LP

So, this record came out last year. But we just found out about it, and its crazy that its not sold out. “Alternate Moon Cycles” by Rob Mazurek (of Chicago Underground/Isotope 217 fame) features two side length movements of droning organ, bass and cornet that shimmer and glow in a most agreeable way. The minimalist […]

Tape Tuesday: Akitsa – Grands Tyrans

With a vinyl release penciled in for August 2015, analog fiends will need to settle on tape if they are yearning to own a physical copy of the new Akitsa album (and they should be). At $13, this certainly falls into the “boutique” black metal price-point, but Akitsa is no joke, and the new album promises […]

Dino Spiluttini – All I Want is to Be a Happy Man LP

Dino Spiluttini has a new tape out on Sacred Phrases, but Tuesday it ain’t, and we wouldn’t dare persuade you to buy obsolete magnetic media on any other day of the week. Lucky for all of you slow-motion, blurry orchestra fans, the man has self-released a heavyweight vinyl edition of his newest opus, All I […]

Tape Tuesday: Phinery May Batch

Phinery, a relatively new tape label out of Denmark, has got a new selection up for you to play and then rewind and then play again. Everything from glitchy crackle to modular wizardy to cut up collage work. It looks like the full batch isn’t up yet, but there are batch order options that begin […]

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 […]
