It’s been a while since we put out something on tape, and today we’re pleased to announce that we are breaking that drought with the first EP from NEKOZE PAJAMAS – fuzzy dream pop from Japan.
Forged from the fires of Tokyo’s indie music scene, NEKOZE PAJAMAS infuse a 90s alternative sound with whimsical ふわふわ overtones; faint echoes of bands such as Deerhoof, the Smashing Pumpkins, and Joy Division just about audible through the reverb soaked guitars.
Today we have a brand new release to share from chip musician donotrunwithpixels. Here’s the blurb:
Putting the chic in anarchic, donotrunwithpixels returns with a double mixtape, one side of four-to-the-floor EDM, and another mashing previous releases with new drum’n’bass grooves. Staying true to his chip-purist ethos the sets feature only the sound of LSDJ on original Nintendo Game Boys. The last two years have seen these sets performed across south Wales and are now available on cassette or via download. Contains twice the adult recommended daily allowance of nihilism. Check with your GP before listening to Super32 in 1 if you are pregnant or taking other medication.
This is a release specifically designed to be listened to on cassette, and there are only 15 copies available. You can grab one from our online shop, or from Bandcamp.
Today we are extremely pleased to be announcing a new artist – Glasgow’s Something in a Tank, and their double EP release.
Something In A Tank is the ‘half-arsed solo project’ of Michael Drum, formerly of Glasgow’s infamous We Are The Physics. It’s on the noisey, dirty end of ‘artrock’, and all produced by one solitary human.
From the horse’s mouth:
In an attempt to do something other than badly play the drums, Michael started fannying about in December 2016 and has released two EPs to date, one of which is an absolute shiter. The other just sucks.
The last EP is a mixture of aggressive guitars (played badly), over-compressed drums and vocals that could be described as ‘just shouting’. For fans of Retox, Hot Nerds, Ima Robot, Faith No More and DMX.
This release itself brings together two separate EPs: ‘Sink or Swim’, and ‘Never Quite the Desired Effect’. As a bonus, there are also two extra tracks included that were up til now unreleased. Grab your copy on the shop here.
It’s been a while coming, but we’re finally able to release the ‘Play Some Rap Music’ EP from Magnificent Bastard. Contrary to what it might seem from the title, this is a far more lofi, rocky affair.
Available now to pre-order, the cassette tape will ship out on the week beginning the 10th of April, with the digital download coming immediately. There are three tracks on the EP, with another bunch of tracks that are exclusive for those who buy the tape, on Side B.
Today we are pleased to announce our latest cassette release, from a brand new Cow Tongue Taco artist. ‘Textures for a Rainy Day’ is an atmospheric foray into sound design from electronic artist Cyborg See Cyborg Do – aka Rostislav Goncharov.
Hailing from the Russian city of Perm, CSCD has been producing electronic music for around about 3 years, starting out playing bass, before falling into the heady world of synthesizers. He describes his sound as ‘atmospheric music from a cold place’.
‘Textures for a Rainy Day’ is a collection of tracks that tell a personal story spanning across 2016, reflecting moments from across the emotional spectrum. Whilst ambient music can often feel more like a meandering sonic experiment rather than tracks in their own right, this release takes the listener on a diverse journey, often using sounds gathered from Goncharov’s everyday life.
We’re really chuffed to be able to put out this collection as a one-one off, limited edition run of 15 hand painted cassette tapes – 10 of which we have available for sale in our online shop.
Today we have another release to add to our roster, with TOKYO from unexpected bowtie.
Written while on long international plane and train journeys, this is music inspired by the lights and movement of globe-trotting; a lingering salute to the people that make up some of the greatest cities in the world.
This album was primarily written on a DMG-01 Game Boy, with a bunch of extra synthy goodness and guitars thrown in for good measure.
You can get the digital download for £3 on our Bandcamp page, or one of only fifteen limited edition, hand-painted cassette tapes for £5 from our shop.
