Sam Goldberg - The Trip

Hoooooooly shit. Holy shit holy shit holy shit. You gotta download this. Grogshop Sam takes his synth on an incredible ride over three cassettes, meant to played simultaneously.

the trip is intended to be listened to on three separate stereo cassette players. begin with the loop playing and begin side A about one minute after. then, start side C about one minute after. as the non-loop cassettes end, flip them and play them immediately. also, feel free to try playing these cassettes in various other combinations of order, volume + speed.

Of course, you're downloading mp3s, not playing this on three cassette decks. Fortunately, getting this to sound as intended is perhaps easier on a computer. All you need is to open multiple instances of your media player like so (three will do, usually), open the mp3 files, and play them as instructed... or not. Play them however you want. It sounds absolutely amazing when done by the numbers though. 11 copies on Pizza Night.

Crosse Humiliation - A Very Young Rider

What a great tape. Greh Holger (Hive Mind, Cleanse) and Paul Gunsberg (New Pledgemaster) do some nice muted power electronics about horses or something like that. What's not to like? 77 copies on Chondritic Sound.



more new stuff coming soon hopefully including a hyper-limited Fag Tapes blitz with Sentenced To Be Quartered II, More than A Thousand Words #1, No One's Child, Polar W, Keep Away, Sick Llama / Failing Lights Remixxx, and maybe if I get around to it the Rude Boxxx.

Astronaut / 1994 split

Some awesome synth tinkling and rainy sound featuring Dan Lopatin who is of course Oneohtrix Point Never. 48 copies on Housecraft.


The Mossy Throats - Electric Swamp

Far as I know, Mossy Throats is a solo project of Dan Dlugosielski who runs the Excite Bike label out of that noise morass of Michigan. This tape, however, is on Sam Goldberg's Pizza Night from late 2008. Sounds like that reed fuckery that everyone's been so fond of recently.


Barf Thoth - Dark Speech

Heath Moerland side project on Fag Tapes circa 2006. It's kind of hard to believe this label is close to five years old now. Weird vocal samples, 77 copies I think.
