Jason Crumer - Walk With Me (Live)


In late 2008, prior to the release of his most recent full-length noise CD Walk With Me, Jason Crumer of American Band, Facedowninshit, and Aluminum Noise put out this private cassette edition containing a live rendition of the titular track and a great b-side featuring a lovely rambling junkie. There were six copies produced with completely unique, handmade packaging.

Pedestrian Deposit + Prurient - Red Head


An apparently rather limited tape on RRRecords from 2004, I find the claim that this is an edition of 48 copies dubious, as I was able to get a copy relatively recently for quite cheap. In any event, this single-sided cassette has some fantastic noise from these two heavyweights. I've been told that my rip is an improvement in quality compared to whatever else is floating around out there. If you're downloading this you probably know what you're in for.

A1: Sap
A2: Collar
A3: Apple Core
A4: Streaks

Treetops - Giant Earth


Mikey Mike Pollard, master of Arbor, continues his prolific output in this 2008 cassette on Sick Head. It's three wonderful tracks of the lo-fi, churning abstractions he's known for. All kinds of wonderful.

A1: Beyond
A2: They Are Land
B: I Lost Mine In The River

Steve Young - Michael Jordan


2008 release from the master of deep space / currently of Young Tapes formerly of JK Tapes, the wonderful Peter F. Side A begins with a lovely synth melody lightly dusted with a trace of melancholy, one of the more beautiful things I've heard in the past few years. Side B pairs a day on the coast with soft swishing lines, abruptly started and re-started in mid sequence yet never in a jarring manner. 40 copies on Arbor with zine.

Really Depressing - Untitled


This is a really weird one-off collab between Heath Moerland and Wes Weaver on Heath's Fag Tapes label. It's FT033, which would probably put it around 2005, and is listed as being out of print on Heath's personal discography, but he is still selling it for $9 on discogs.com. It's some really wicked, slow, meandering shit that sounds like some sorta 70's purgatory with some field recording of what seems like a vert skateboarding ramp to boot. 8 untitled tracks. 50 copies.

Upcoming cassette rip blog

Hi, I hope to post tapes I rip myself here on a semi-regular basis, all noise and new age and other weird crap

Only out of print stuff and whatever's no longer available from the artist/label/etc (trying to stick to this but it gets tough sometimes)

This will continue until I get bored or something

If you are an artist or label person who wants your stuff removed you can get at me here and I'll take care of it
