This is one of the most classily-packaged tapes I've seen. It comes in a glossy box with a tasteful foil-stamped design on it and an obi strip (or "belly band" as the press release calls it). Inside the box is some padding and this cassette by Jeremy Bible.
The cassette contains some subtle and bizarre sound design, opening gently with some soft, smooth drones before introducing jarringly loud and shrill trebly computer tones with increasing regularity before we get treated to a kind of musique concrete mixture of field recordings and indeterminate fast-forwarded squiggles, a helicopter drops in and out, along with radio flickers and electric tics.
Sometimes the birdsong in the field recordings seems to be in conversation with all the strange analogue flutters. Then they stop abruptly and there's a strange hissing drone, then more field recordings...it's an unpredictable mishmash of sounds from all sorts of sources; digital, analogue, acoustic and computerised sounds all crushed together into a disorienting and feverish melange. In places it's making me feel genuinely a bit panicky with all the densely layered clamour, but that's interlaced with some more minimal passages too.
If you like weird noises, and weird combinations of noises, there's some truly unusual stuff going on here.
