New Release: Something in a Tank – Double EP

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 Double EP cover

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.

New Release: unexpected bowtie – liberal exodus

Today we announce the latest Cow Tongue Taco release: ‘liberal exodus’ from Glaswegian chip-botherer unexpected bowtie.

The 10 track LP is unexpected bowtie’s sixth full-length album, and the blend of Game Boy and traditional electronica is a more mature follow on from 2016’s TOKYO.

Out on both digital and cassette, the tape portion of this release is extremely limited edition – with only five available – and costs only £2.50 more than the download, so well worth grabbing one.

You can have a listen to liberal exodus over on our Bandcamp, and get your copy of the tape in our online shop. Streaming via Spotify to follow very shortly.

 

New Release: Renku Corporation – Ending Definite Failure

We are pleased to announce a new release, this time from America’s Renku Corporation, who we featured back in April.

‘Ending Definite Failure’ is over 90 minutes of modular electronic music, with additional bonus tracks exclusive to this release.

You can grab a copy of the limited edition tapes over on the Cow Tongue Taco shop, or from our Bandcamp page.

New Release: Magnificent Bastard – Play Some Rap Music EP

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.

You can grab the EP from our online shop, or from our Bandcamp here. There are only 10 copies available, and the band have a few to sell directly, so check out their Bandcamp here if you find them sold out!

New Release: Cyborg See Cyborg Do – Textures for a Rainy Day

Cyborg See Cyborg Do - Textures for a Rainy Day

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.

Cyborg See - Cyborg Do - Textures for a Rainy Day cassette

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.

You can pick up a copy from the Cow Tongue Taco shop, or from our BandCamp page.

You can hear more from Cyborg See Cyborg Do over on his own Bandcamp and Soundcloud pages.

New release – unexpected bowtie: TOKYO

unexpected bowtie - TOKYO album art

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.

Frank Angotti is Dead

Today we have another release making its way into the shop, from Indiana’s Frank Angotti. Released in conjunction with Thrash44, there are only 15 copies of the cassette that will ever be made – and we have 4 of them available.

Listen to the album here, and grab a copy before they disappear here. If you’re in the US, you can pick up one locally here instead to save on international postage.

Noice!
