  • trauma – calming effects of the ocean vol. 3

    out of stock

    The third chapter of Trauma’s six part series (other volumes on Fag Tapes, Excite Bike, Tapeworm Tapes, Holy Cheever Church, and American Tapes) finds the Detroit duo of percussionist Ben Hall and guitarist Chris Riggs adrift in texture. Neither’s role can be distinguished; a seriously strange and pure approach. Percussive guitar and melodic drums intertwine denying all points of departure. The piece constantly advances incessantly in a blur of energy; almost non-human: like a field recording of playerless instruments outside during a rainstorm. In an edition of 100 tapes with full color cardstock covers and printed labels.


  • justin meyers – the amplitude of neighbors

    out of stock

    Minneapolis’ Justin Meyers has been producing extremely discrete musique concrete for the past few years. Through field recordings Meyers achieves a double sided voyeurism; his capturing of another’s space, and the listeners glimpse into his space. His care and precision demands attention with an unconscious magnetism; on Both Sides the recording of an outdoor summer’s evening is paired with subtle beating frequencies symbiotically shifting in and out of the other, producing a deeply compelling command over space. This same phenomena is explored on A Visitor: composed with simple sine waves, infinite variations of listening interaction are possible, imposing the piece directly within the space of the listener. In an edition of 125 copies with full color cardstock covers and labeled tapes.


  • cloaked light – plain curtain – arbor

    out of stock

    These early four-track experiments from Peter Friel’s Cloaked Light project offers a look into focus. With the slowest subtlety changes grow, only perceptible through reflection. A new form of seeking to understand; a non-linear music, offering a space of contemplation to look forward and behind. On A Long Green Hall Friel shifts meaning and reorients the place of speech in a Lucierian experiment with self-help tapes. On But I’m Trying, subtle tonal expansions mirror the manipulation of speech on the previous track, though without the recognizable markers of language the result is more obscured. Each track offers insight to the others processes. Recorded in Summer 2009, these tracks are some of the earliest from the project, a precursory inquiry to the tapes on Ekhein and Monorail. Upcoming split 12” EP with Pale Blue Sky further explores the nature of tonal interactions and non-linear potentials of sound. In an edition of 125 copies with full color cardstock covers and labeled tapes.


  • mirror to mirror – a personal reality – arbor

    out of stock

    Alex Twomey’s Mirror to Mirror project continues a long standing tradition of Southern California artists focused on introspection and slow simplicity. Inspired by long roads and large open spaces; as well as their place within the daily repetition, finding sense within the nonsense. Light washes of painterly composition; evolving harmonies transform, turning in on themselves. The first track, ‘Laughing and Understanding’ , was developed last winter on the California tour with Infinite Body, Pedestrian Deposit, Earn, Cloaked Light, and Pale Blue Sky. In an edition of 150 copies with professionally duplicated/imprinted cassettes and cardstock covers.


  • brendan murray – inveterate

    out of stock

    Brendan Murray’s consistent output for the past decade has revealed an underlying concern for the working of sonic material. Inveterate, containing a single,extended 90 minute recording follows this line of thought; looking inside of a sustained moment developing in such a way that difference and similarity can no longer be distinguished. Establishing itself as itself by attempting to present the sound from all possible angles and orientations. Nonlinear developments; viewed from the outside as a long blur. Recorded September 2009 at Weirdo Records. In an edition of 150 copies with professionally duplicated/imprinted cassettes and cardstock covers.


  • earn – lacewing

    out of stock

    Two very simple and minimal mandolin-based ambient pieces recorded to 4-track one summers day in Los Angeles. Songs for the passing of a day and where the time goes.


  • earn – performance

    out of stock

    Two full length live recordings. Ranging from an earlier, more long-form set in Chicago 2009 to a more recent set of several pieces recorded this previous fall in St. Louis. Personally, this release serves not only as a document of “Performance” but also to illustrate the sometimes strange dynamic between the person playing, the people attending, and the place it’s all occurring in.


  • earn – hell on earth

    out of stock

    Pure bliss-float. I don’t know how he keeps a sustainted tone so rich, while you can almost hear little patterns sticking out now and then. Truly transcendental.
