Tape Tuesday: Cassauna

If you are a collector of fine experimental audio, you are mostly likely familiar with Important Records. What you may not be aware of is their cassette division Cassauna. In the past couple of months they have released some of their best tapes yet, from Thomas Barriere and Alberto Boccardi. The former offers up some […]

Tape Tuesday: Notice Recordings

Notice Recordings is an Oregon/Louisiana based tape label that curates some of the best exploratory sound around with almost museum-like precision. If you are looking for compositions that require deep listening and thought, look no further than these new tapes from Ben Owen, Haptic, Chik White and Jack Harris & Samuel Rodgers. These minimalist works […]

Medicine – Home Everywhere LP

Laner & Co. are back with a new fuzzy blissed-out Medicine record. ‘Home Everywhere’ sounds the way walking out into the light after being in a dark theatre feels. The band rips through two sides of 3-4 min pop burners that navigate their way through psychedelic corridors of layered guitar noise, aquatic vocals routines and […]

Tape Tuesday: Tiger Village – V

Tim Thornton aka Tiger Village is killing here here on ‘V’ (the fifth tape in a series of his). Synths, samplers, tape loops and drum machines all collide to generate some absolutely whacked out elctronic…I mean, tech..actually wait, or…man, I don’t know whats going on here but its totally hypnotic and gaze widening. It’s something […]

Tape Tuesday: Persona Mercure – La Marche, Le Discours, Le Souper

This rad new tape, released on Hobo Cult, is best described as haunted chamber music. Taking center stage here is bowed double bass that swells and pulses while electronic components creak and chirp in accompaniment, making up for a lack of brass or percussive elements typically found in orchestral movements. It’s slow, plodding (but my […]

Tape Tuesday: Aging – Troubles? I Got A Bartender

Lets talk about Tombed Visions for a second. The releases on this rad UK label have been flying under all the radars we’re aware of..but we’re going to change that. Not 100% on exactly when this tape from Aging was actually released, but what matters is that it seems to be available and this is […]

Tape Tuesday: Digitalis

Just in case you’ve been living under a rock—or on Neptune—there is a new batch of tapes from the one and only Digitalis. When he’s not producing mind bending instrumentals as Charlatan, Brad Rose is slinging some of the best experimental/left-field music that exists. These new ones from Sound Out Light, wzrdryAV, Benjamin Finger and […]

Tape Tuesday: Field Hymns

The fact of the matter is: Field Hymns already has, hands down, the best RIYL descriptions one could ask for. Never the less, we’ll bite. This newest batch includes work from Sad Horse (limited to 100 copies), Portopia ’81 and Conrade Wedde (limited to 75 copies each) and it pretty much covers everything you need […]

Tape Tuesday: Sunshine Ltd.

Two new tapes from Florida’s Sunshine Ltd. are available. This time around both releases are from Brooklyn based artists Billy Gomberg and the duo of Taylor Burton & Andy C. Jenkins. Gomberg provides some glacial drones and the Burton/Jenkins duo get ritualistic with some manipulated gamelan explorations. Both tapes have arrived just in time for […]

Tape Tuesday: M. Sage – Data In The Details

Between operating his label Patient Sounds and turning out some of the best minimal ambient works of the year, Matt Sage has had a great year. Lucky for all of us he can’t and won’t stop. His newest tape on Geographic North is a rad addition to an already stellar catalog. In some ways slightly […]
