Label Update: December

Heads up, a new set of Vital Sound I tapes landed at Permanent Records Chicago. The tapes are also available online, support your local store! They also have copies of The N.E.C. B-Sides, The Sunny Muffdivers, All Half Evil, and our sold out Cinchel drone.dump.

If you're not near Ukranian Village, all Reckless stores have the Vital-Sound compilation, and the Milwaukee Ave. shop has The N.E.C. and Cinchel tapes. You can also find The N.E.C. at Loop Reckless. Again, be sure to support your local stores!

NEW CASSETTE! HOME-MASTERED TAPE MANIPULATION! 'Spective proprietor, Nicholas Zettel, presents Emporium, Vision, a summertime drone/guitar affair. Opening with ethereal atmosphere, this set of four songs meanders through two-channel follow-and-response folk, followed by reverb circuitry manipulation and backwards tape exercises. In order to amplify extreme echo patterns and manipulate decay time, these tracks were recorded in the red and mastered loud. Two-channel interactions showcase disparate stories and opposing sounds, invoking conversation/silence, soul/body, surreality/reality.

Each tape will be home-dubbed onto commercial tape for now; between $3.50 US PPD and $5 US PPD donation recommended for American orders. International shipping negotiable. Please contact [spectiveaudio] at [gmail] dot [com] if interested.

Please email [spectiveaudio] at [gmail] dot [com] to inquire about any year end deals or cassette packs. Cinchel's tape is sold out, but we still have copies of The Sunny Muffdivers, The N.E.C., Vital-Sound, and The Leavitt Ours.
