New Release: NEKOZE PAJAMAS 1st EP

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.

Bass / Vocals : Mizuki
Guitar : Keita
Drum (supported) : Peshi Kun

Music & lyrics written by Mizuki
Music arrangement by NEKOZE PAJAMAS
Recorded at Void)))Lab in Tokyo, Japan in September 2020
Album Art by Mizuki

You can stream or download the EP from our Bandcamp, or pick up one of the colourful tapes for a modest sum of £4.

New Release: Hog Wild – Hog Wild

Today we have a brand new release from Hog Wild. The self-titled EP has five tracks which were recorded by the duo from home in about a week, and have a real scuzzy energy about them. Think electronic tinged grunge pop and you’re not too far off.

You can find the full EP for free only on our Bandcamp at cowtonguetaco.com. There may or may not be a tape to come later.

New Release: donotrunwithpixels – Super 32 in 1

Super 32 in 1
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 Super 32 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.

New Release: The Radio-Friendly Noises of Sandbite

Sandbite Music

Sandbite is the side project of Cyborg See Cyborg Do, whose ‘Textures for a Rainy Day‘ we released last year. Created entirely with a single Dreadbox Erebus synth and a bunch of effects, this is a digital-only release with tons of atmosphere and character. Somehow it manages to sound both dark, but upbeat at the same time. It has echoes of a not-so-distant dystopian future, where hope shines through in golden rays. It’s a pay-what-you-want release, so what are you waiting for?

Download it for free here.

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.
