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.

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.

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. Jangly, swirling guitars and slapback delay abound here within the mix of drone and trippy psychedelic space rock that is “Green Sleeves.” It drops you off just before dawn […]

Tape Tuesday: Blood Room – Habitus

Indole Records from the UK has been doing some really rad stuff with their releases. One of note is ‘Habitus’ by Blood Room (aka Tim Matts) Equal parts plunderphonics and minimal techno, this recording is an examination of everything down in the cracks and in between the walls. The tape features bonkers illustration by Jennifer […]

Tape Tuesday: Joseph Lawrence Quimby Jr. – Wren/Le Chat Est Parti

Tombed Visions are killing it right out of the gate in 2015. Their signature quality is again front and center with the new 2xCS from Joseph Lawrence Quimby Jr. This is Quimby’s third time around on the label, and this double recording is easily his best. Cellos, guitars, pianos, field records and great use of […]
