    a friend was over the day and pointed out i have several copies of this stashed around tomentosa headquarters. Some serious hoarding going on, mainly cause this is a longtime favorite of mine. All this era of james and spencer’s tapes are amazing and still stand out as some of my favorite releases but this one always was pretty high up among all those release. So yeah recommended for sure.

  • james ferraro – discovery – holy mountain

    out of stock

    Clear and Discovery were originally released as two companion CDRs by James Ferraro (of the whole Skaters / Lamborghini Crystal / 90120 / Splash / Nirvana axis) and comprise the August 1974 (Taj-Mahal Travellers) of his discography. Both albums contain absolutely beautiful whirling hall-of-knives-style synth drone that makes one want to reference Klaus Schulze or Bobby Beausoleil. Clear bursts with flam beats and a cluster of melodies muffled like a calliope wrapped in a soggy tarp, while Discovery is comparable to Daft Punk’s album of the same name but played in reverse at 16 rpm through a boombox in a boiler room.
    These two records contain the sounds of pulling out with tapping beats of fluid dropped on a soft convertible top (open), much like those fictitious Giorgio Moroder songs for the upcoming Olympics in Atlantis or a reworking of that award-winning song from Revenge of the Nerds– or is it “Wonderwall”– into a theme for a future ski jump at the Great Pyramids.

  • james ferraro – farside virtual – hippos in tanks

    out of stock

    “James Ferraro paints a 21st century still life on his debut album for Hippos In Tanks. The record is called Far Side Virtual. Each song, a melodious reflection of the moment now, comes shrink-wrapped in HD fidelity as glossy as a 2012 Toyota Prius. Ferraro’s muse is some enigmatic modern metropolis, where the streets are as slick as i-Pads, and where the symphonies ring with Macbook message alerts. Through the steam rising from our latte mocha chinos, he invites us to gaze out at the dreamy disorientation of our digital lives. Imagine a Darius Milhuad-guided tour of 5th Avenue. Imagine a Whole Foods bakery that sells only cakes emblazoned with frosting replicas of Camille Pissarro’s ‘Haying at Eragny.’ These are the surreal utopias Ferraro brings to life with sixteen swirly-pop concoctions sure to sell out at the candy stores. So slip in your ear buds, and welcome to Far Side Virtual.” Ferraro’s masterwork, including a digital download code.

    out of stock

    The Temple Defectors is James Ferraro & Spencer Clark, presenting here a fine slab of vintage violence (from around the time they did “Dark Rye Bread” and “Gambling in Ohpa’s Shadow” (as the Skaters)) – essential. On the flip is some fine itinerant heavy lidded psych by Claypipe – that’s Antony Milton and Clayton Noone from New Zealand. Limited lathe cut 10″ to 120 copies in proper hand assembled covers, with a poster insert and resealable sleeve.
