Indian Weapons
Labyrinth

This week we got a bunch of cassettes on the Chemical Tapes label which seems like an interesting one to me! Tapes from Maps & Diagrams & Machinefabriek as well as Indian Weapons which is the one I'd picked up for two reasons. One, I like the name and two I've not heard 'em before. You never know if that amazing thing you've been waiting...view item »

Yamaoka
Systematic

Chemical Tapes release this beautiful and clinical sounding tape from DOET Yamaoka. The 'Systematic' cassette blends together tranquil sounding ambience with gently hypnotising beats, screeching field recordings and sustained piano. 'Systematic' sounds both crystal clear and immersive, a soundscape worth getting completely lo...view item »

Bastian Void
Phonics

With two killer releases this year - Looks Realistic's 'Where Does It Come From' and Homeowner's 'Themes from 172' - and a new Gay Shapes cassette supposedly due before the end of the year, it's pretty apparent that Joe Bastardo doesn't actually need sleep - which is funny considering that his particular brand of hazy ...view item »

Rainbow Valley / Wind In Willows
Split

For those slow melancholic days, during which you want to do nothing more than necessary - for example, turning around a cassette tape - we have just what you need: the split release by Rainbow Valley and Wind in Willows. The artists from UK/Russia complement each other splendidly on these slow and pretty tracks...view item »

Tidal
Olympus

I really like what I have heard on Chemical Tapes, it’s a right good label it is! This is a real cool effort by young Jimmy Billingham, someone with one of those names that only cheery kids from the ‘80s who loved playing foot...view item »

Atlantis
The Institute Of Technology

Tim Diagram’s last Atlantis release was a limited CD and from what I remember it was really good. It certainly sold fast anyway! So it’s nice to see a newie from him here from cerebral electro-experimentalist good people at Chemical Tape...view item »

Benge
Loop Series

Chemical Tapes really put the effort into making their releases look dead professional, and not only that but this little Benge tape here has a track-by-track talk through by the artist himself and a little introduction he's written about what he likes about cassette tapes. There's four t...view item »

Flotel
Valence

Heheh, nice "Find The Others" quote from Terence McKenna on the inner cover of this tape. It's been ages since I heard anything from Flotel, probably something on Expanding I guess. This one builds from microscopic tones with gently emerge and evolve into...view item »

Drekka
Live In Europe 2010

These tracks were recorded live in both Italy and Slovenia. I've no idea how Michael Anderson makes these sounds but I know I like them. There are lots of sweeping breezy whispers and gaseous billowing drones hovering around pieces of sampled dialogue and layers of strings, piano and indecipherable possibly manipulated found sounds. The over...view item »

Maps & Diagrams
Red Moon Rising

As the title and the artwork suggest, we're in for a celestial ride as Tim Martin dons his kosmische cap for nine micro astral odysseys on this C30 tape. Expect glistening synth scapes with playful warm and hypnotic melodies. He gets some hypnotic little sequences going as the tracks gently evolve. Phil is reminded of some of the retro-70s sci-f...view item »
