‘Vaguely Nefarious’ is the artist’s second album, continuing on with their ‘bonkers and disturbing’ theme… with powerful synth-soaked electronica. This is an exploration through dark dreams and sinister places.

The album is available to buy on limited edition cassette tape now from our online shop, or through our Bandcamp page. Only fifteen copies have been made, and the price includes a digital download, with four bonus, download only ‘b-side’ tracks.

You can also stream the album via Spotify right now, if that’s your thing.

New release – unexpected bowtie: TOKYO

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.

New Release: Closet Organ 5318008

Closet Organ - 5318008

Today, Glaswegian noisemongers Closet Organ release their debut album on Cow Tongue Taco Records – entitled 5318008 as the result of a Kickstarter gamble gone terribly wrong.

CLICK HERE TO ORDER NOW.

The album includes the single ‘Make America Great Again‘, which caused some consternation upon release when Trump supporters didn’t quite get the joke.

5318008 is available digitally, as well as on cassette tape, and eventually on vinyl LP. We have the tapes up in the store right now, which cost £12.50 for both the tape and immediate digital download.

Tapes are back

The other day when I was posting out some cassettes, the woman in the post office, off-the-cuff, said:

Oh aye, tapes are meant to be coming back into fashion.

Is that right?

Today a link has been going around about what is apparently the last remaining cassette duplication/production factory in the US, and it’s worth a watch. Only 3 minutes long, and pretty beautifully shot:

“There is no question that tapes are coming back.”

Turns out Rolling Stone penned an article on the topic at the end of last month.

A good time to get into the tape label business then, and a better time to check out what releases we have up for sale in the shop.
