  • cliffsides – headspace – tranquility tapes

    out of stock

    Your eyes do not deceive you. This is two full hours of brand new Cliffsides material. After relocating to the Bay Area in 2013, Ryan McGill plunged head first into his solo endeavor and what he came up with is the massive and sprawling achievement that is Headspace. Divided into two distinct sets, “The Fool” features brand new synth work and “The Universe” is made up of material created through sampling various found cassettes and field recordings – a style that began to take shape on last year’s Spirit in the Mountain Temple cassette on Hooker Vision. Thematically, the release contrasts the notions of conscious and unconscious thought, logic and dreams, reason and desire, as well as the symbiotic and mutually destructive interactions between man and universe. Sonically, it’s everything you want from new Cliffsides and then some. Stunning melodic sequences and progressions segue into ultra-deep drones and abstract passages, while angelic voices and strangely familiar orchestrations rise up from magnetic spools. Altogether, this is a thoroughly fascinating and epic double dose you’ll want to take again and again. Pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle. Comes with a free digital download.

  • adrian orange – deep stain doublest dubba dope duba stank dank – gnar tapes

    out of stock

    To begin an explanation of this tape and its release we need to go back in time five or six years ago, when bands like Thanksgiving and The Watery Graves, whose members founded Portland’s own Marriage Records, were playing and touring at an almost constant rate. Marriage was putting out bands like Lucky Dragons, Dirty Projectors, YACHT and White Rainbow (among many others) and to many it seemed that label mainstay and co-founder Adrian Orange (aka Thanksgiving) (who played sometimes- stark-sometimes-candlelight-warm folk songs on guitar or with full band (or with anyone who’d want to jam for that matter)) was poised to be some kind of boyish weirdo outsider phenomenon. After almost a dozen releases under Marriage he released an LP of acid-tinged dub-jam nomad blues on K Records called “Adrian Orange and Her Band”. It was shortly after its widespread release that the young Adrian Orange suffered a near complete mental collapse, triggered by all manners of fatigue following a largely innebriated tour of the US and Europe. His music at that time was becoming decidedly more tripped out and he released a limited run CDR on Marriage called “AJO” that had a heavy psych-blues/ jazz thing happening. This was followed by a near endless stream of tribal smoke-den boom-boom beats, at first with singing and lyrics similar to his work with friend Honey Owens (Valet, Miracles Club) with whom he had recently sang with on Valet’s record “Naked Acid” a few months prior. This was followed by nonsensical freestyles with hyphy style beats and a time where very few were aware of Adrian’s activities or whereabouts. Then over the course of this last year, after a long road of ups and downs, almost overnight returned to his friends and was able to focus on music again. At the time of this release he is in New York after a tour of the US until Halloween, when he will fly over to England and Europe. This two tape set compiles the nearly three and a half hours of music he made in his “exile era”. For new and old fans alike, this is his first official release in amost two years. Two pro-dub/pro-print cassettes with collectable catalog card and download.
