Mutant shape-shifters, Future Ape Tapes, deliver an otherworldly explosion of psychedelic sounds on their newest release, Pyramirrormid. Expanding the core duo of Donald Whitehead and Thomas Valadez into a full band, featuring two drummers, the Apes have perfectly documented their sometimes chaotic, sometimes sublime, always memorable live shows.
Pro-dubbed edition of 100 tapes.
Having taken an extended vacation from Quiet Evenings to focus on Coyote Image etc., Other Windows is a return to form for the duo, exploring themes from their early output but with a modified arsenal of acoustic and electronic instruments. Cello and guitar slowly waft through hazy layers of vocals and synthesizers, awash in understated melancholia.
Pro-dubbed edition of 100 tapes. Covers printed on heavy shimmer paper.
The duo of Frank Baugh (Sparkling Wide Pressure) and Jani Hirvonen (Uton) reside on separate ends of the globe but through their collaborative project, Abyssal Farmers, have managed to combine their idiosyncratic approaches to folk and electronic music in creating this disjointed narrative. You never quite know what to expect as the two discs unfold and by the end you are left with more questions than answers but therein lies the charm.
Edition of 50 2x 3" CDrs housed in a DVD case.
