  • jeff host – in memorian: joybubbles – pizza night

    out of stock

    Super hypnotic sequencer cuts from Jeff Host, a longtime ohioan who is just recently getting more attention around here. An incredibly talented guy who has studied electronic music at Oberlin and recently graduated in guitar performance at Kent State. At age 10, he could be found playing Led Zep covers note for note on the back of flatbed trucks at county fairs around ohio. “In Memoriam: Joybubbles” is an incredible display of his composition skills being put to use using minimal sequences and subtle vibrations that create spacious rainbows of aural ecstasy . Insane rhythm compositions pair up nicely with the more subdued zones that he explores. All in memory of legendary hacker, Joybubbles.

  • david russell – artistic suicide – pizza night

    out of stock

    On point recordings from David Russell showcase his fine tuned approach to merging unpredictably frantic sounds and focused controlled sound experiments. Very hypnotic tracks juxtaposed against screeching noise blasts. A wide array of all the things David does so well. The dynamics of his more percussive pieces extends his repertoire widely on this one.

  • kurosounds – blue seven – blue tapes

    Home-dubbed C25+C25+download code
    Limited edition of 20 copies only

    That awful cliche about musicians not being able to choose between their songs (even the bad ones!) because the songs are like their children – and picking a favourite would not just be wrong, it would be impossible – is proved scarily true once you start running a tape label.

    Not that we can claim any ownership over the craftmanship in the seven releases so far, but we’re equally protective of each installment in the series.

    That said…

    Kurosounds’ release – two tapes, one featuring the tape-length composition Bleu Nuit – is all kinds of special for us. It inhabits the strange dreamy place where not-quite music and diegetic daysound blur into sound as pure as paintings.

    This is the closest to the sound we heard in our heads when we started Blue Tapes as an endeavour, so Kurosounds to us sounds like home.

    There are instruments here – acoustic guitar that sounds like it’s been deconstructed atom by atom (and then sewn back together), something that might be a kalimba or mbira, distant percussion and sounds that could be synths were it not for the fact that they seem to be breathing. But these manmade contraptions never dominate – they drift in and out with as much agency or urgency as any of the found sound snatches of conversation or other noise that populate this world.

    Each element goes about its business, seemingly aware of the other shapes in the space it inhabits, but blissfully relieved of any pressure to interact with them.


  • birds of passage / je suis le petit chevalier / motion sickness of time travel / aloonaluna – taxidermy of unicorns

    out of stock

    2 cassettes with small zine


    Folk music is expanding into many new forms with experimentalists such as birds of passage, Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier, Motion Sickness of Time Travel and Aloonaluna- all female experimentalists who plant folk notions to a more hybridized, variegated flora. Whether the terms of music here is ambiguous but personal voice, the electronic as modernist tool for folk-making, or a magic-realist or urban-pastoral perspective- these terms are expanding in ways that are gaseous; the terrestrial reaching out to the more intangible worlds of dream and space. This is individual and private music speaking to a more collective conscious. This is Taxidermy of Unicorns- an act of stuffing such a mythical animal, fabricating this beautiful beast as a specimen of all such beasts…

    Tape art by Lynn Fister. Watercolor printed insert with sewn leaves and wrapped in yarn. Accompanying booklet with individual, original collage on center page. Pro-dubbed chrome plus tape with clear shell and black lining. Limited to 200.
