Nice packaging this ‘un. It comes in a tasty lino print oversized cardboard box thingy with artwork by Jake Blanchard, which comes as no surprise as Torpress is his label and he’s a top artist. Speaking of which you really should check out the Wooden Shjips posters we just got in which were designed and screenprinted by Jake and are limited to 38. Very nice!

My Carapace Is Leaking is a new project of a chap called Joincey who’s been in a number of low key experimental bands over the years most notably Inca Eyeball. His side of this split tape is mass of lo-fi fuzz with some drones in the background. If ever a track was perfectly suited to the cassette format it’s this. Listen hard though and you’ll hear riches’s a bit like one of those magic eye pictures where if you stare for long enough you can see a dolphin laying a cable balancing on a rainbow or something.

Flip it over and you’ll find Astral Social Club trying their best to make you feel insane. They do one long track of frantic tape collage with electronic bloops, winks and squeaks. It’s equally interesting and disconcerting whilst being compelling and upsetting. I like that it makes me feel like this. It’s good to feel like this sometimes.
