sunroom
self titled
deep catalogue
hesperides

sweet and soft synths for lonely afternoons. what transports you almost instantly to the regions of tender memories? those gentle harmonies? these lullaby like melodies? nevermind, just let it flow, it feels so good... aaah. please, press play again.


guitar and synths droning you into the bliss of a perfect evening. everything is just on its place, your breathing is slow and steady, your mind wander into the landscape of wonderful memories. just one thing disturbs your tranquil mood: the tape will be over in a minute. would you be so kind to share this perfect moment with me? would you be so nice to rewind the tape?
 

split tape for minimalist lovers. and for those who would like to learn about.

glass house
haruspex c44
recorded over 8 months in 2013 and 2014, haruspex is the third full length release by the brooklyn/philadelphia based glass house.  consisting of two side-long pieces written for various electronic, stringed and percussion instruments, the album follows the trajectory set by the duo's previous effort, keeping to the void. here, dense drones oscillate between moods both light and dark, punctuated by heavily processed field recordings and an undercurrent of musicality that implies influences ranging from doom metal to classical. 

two sides of wondeful music from a duet of gifted musicians. will beam you into the void almost instantly!

panabrite
wasteland cycle c30
no matter where you find yourself, whether it’s in a far flung remote desert or a small town motel with an incessant barking dog nearby, you are living your own perpetual wasteland cycle. you return home and immediately are thrown back into it as well, as if you never left. this is a travelogue for the subconscious mind living these experiences; little vignettes and memories of place, arbitrary voices, strange sights, dull and ordinary rituals…


deep music for deep thoughts. or vice versa.

venn rain
crepuscular raze c28
"recorded in london during the summer riots of 2011"
jimmy billingham, liner notes to „crepuscular raze“
"the [2011 summer] riots have generated significant ongoing debate among political, social and academic figures about the causes and context in which they happened."
wikipedia, „2011 england riots“
jimmy billingham's last release under his „venn rain“ moniker adds a cultural nuance to this ongoing debate. have the suspicion that he felt like being in the eye of the storm recording his „crepuscular raze“. his trademark foggy drones with guitar feedback and fx and stuff makes you feel like lost in a capsule staggering into the outer realms of your inner space. very far out but hey, it feels so good! and keep in mind, the „real“ world around you is and will always be just plain crazy.
buy this tape and keep sane. full stop.
