  • afterlife – bodies in motion- digitalis recordings

    out of stock

    if this is what the afterlife is like maybe i should start believing in that shit. but really the duo of ryan mcgill (cliffsides) and franklin teagle (meditations) stretches their wings and fly even further on their latest declaration finding the visceral symmetry in subtle shifts and simple composition. dual synthscapes that line the sky with their warm, glowing major chord changes and galactic leads. its music that is easy to grasp on the surface, but deeper listening reveals something even more magical. 

    of course, on the flip they go straight-up mid-80s sci-fi with abandon. this is not fucking kitsch, it’s fucking awesome. minimal beats provide the backbone for rising-and-falling notes and pitchbends. it’s exactly what i think of when i heard the phrase “bodies in motion.” everything devolves in the end, becoming a spastic mass of elegiac tones that get buried underneath washes of square waves and noise. sort of a poetic end if you ask me. edition of 80, pro-dubbed.

  • afterlife – surfacing illusions – tranquilty tapes

    out of stock

    The first full release since the debut Afterlife LP, Surfacing Illusions finds Ryan McGill and Franklin Teagle diving deeper intro dream states and unknown places than ever before. Built around sounds captured nearby, far away, and even long ago, the duo layers field recordings carefully with dueling synths to take the listener on a journey that’s altogether stranger and more varied than any previous releases. From glorious harmonies suited for a cathedral to quiet, uneasy trips into a dissonant void, there’s plenty to get lost in this time around. Pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle.


  • afterlife – celestial habitat – hooker vision

    $12.00 Add to cart

    Afterlife is Ryan McGill (Cliffsides) and Franklin Teagle (Cenote Glow), two Georgia natives currently residing in New York. They’ve put out some amazing tapes over the years but on this, their debut vinyl, they left no crevice of their past oeuvre unexplored while continuing to press onward and upward. Field recordings and percolating electronics merge into a rich tapestry of crystal clear transcendence, hitting you straight in the third eye. This is a portrait of two artists at the top of their game. While there’s certainly no shortage of synth jammers out there, these guys are operating in a world of their own and this album is a stunning testament to that fact.


  • afterlife – transmissions – maggot valley

    out of stock

    With their recordings: Franklin Teagle and Ryan McGill, as always, become mediums of the stars, channelled by forces beyond our grasp of reality and regularly practice the true meaning of meditation through their impromtu gatherings, the result…some of the most beautifully intense hypnotic melodies comprehensible, to these eyes…..i personally view their process as not necessarily controlled, moreso: released-alike the instinctual breathing process of animals-OR-the natural process of love and compassion, together these 2 gentlemen are a force fueled and navigated by emotion and transcendental instinct . the natural and supernatural working as one prayer. FT/RM and maggot valley are happy to share this release that was recorded early 2010….since then, like any other artist or collaborations; the process and fundamentals change over time, like everything…being a fan myself, i have a collection of their cassettes, which i love to change up
    here is something that has been hidden away from us for a few years and made available to you now, that you can throw into the rotation where it belongs (also BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR AN LP courtesy of HOOKER VISION)
