So, Wood Between Worlds has started putting up the Autumn Harvest tapes, a batch of cassette and digital releases.

 

The full set can be grabbed here, and the individual releases are described below.

 

Spiricom - Spiricom

Imposing soundscapes, walls of distortion, arresting drones, haunting vocal loops: these sounds and more coalesce on Spiricom's debut cassette release, resulting in a strikingly cohesive and unique album. Taking influence from other genre-defying artists like Ulver, Leyland Kirby, and Current 93, these tracks utilize various styles - echoing tribal and dub techno on "Incantations" or harkening the deep ambient electronic compositions of Tim Hecker or Ben Frost on tracks like "Overpasse" and "By Myself and Others."

 

Ryan Harris - Endless Shadows

Horror, suspense, and enthrallment of cinematic scope. Throbbing synth pulses, hypnotic beats, and enchanting melodies woven together by Ryan Harris. Endless Shadows' sound and vision is a tribute to the scores of John Carpenter and the discography of the label Italians Do It Better.

All music was recorded back in 2010, and unearthed in 2014. All improvisational recording live on various synths with no overdubs.

 

Rorqual - sei/ci

Rorqual is an ambient project inspired by the Chopped & Screwed movement. The slowing, repetition, improvisation, and cassette/mixtape/lo-fi aesthetic that was integral to the sound of DJ Screw and many other purveyors of the movement is here taken to an extreme and twisted into ambience where only the ghosts of rappers and beats remain.

 

Full disclosure: Rorqual is my (side) project, so I'm obviously invested in that. But no matter, the Ryan Harris and Spiricom releases are both very good. Far outshine my stuff. Definitely give those albums a listen.

Too skint to buy tapes at the mo but I gave Endless Shadows a listen a while ago and it's bloody lovely. I love the overall aesthetic as well.

 

Thanks for listening! I need to get in contact with some distros outside of the US - shipping tapes outside of the country costs an arm and leg :/

 

edit: if you like Ryan Harris he put this out last year - one of my favorite tapes of 2013, you can stream it here. He also did half of the c30 split with ATOP

      Album entirely recorded using archaic recording devices. 
      Any thoughts?

      I would like to share with you, beautiful people, my very first album release: "ReconoɔǝЯ".
       
      The following is an attempt at creating a “palindromic” record, meaning that it can be listened to from both sides: “(..) an attempt to materialize the backs and forths of life (…) It is music without a starting corner, but it takes the idea of a corner and turns it into a circle. The idea of the beginning being repeated at the end and the end at the beginning…”.
       
      Entirely recorded using archaic recording devices, such as Sony TC250, Fostex X18, Walkmans, among them.
       
      Hope you guys enjoy it. Love you all ♥

      just happened across this YT channel that's basically just a trove of tape rips (mostly it seems at least) of DJ sets. clicked on a few and listening to this FSOL one right now: 
      and starting this Carl Cox mix right now it sounds wild:
      [edit: that bassline that comes in at 22:11 is so goddamned dirty. so many awesome synth lines all throughout this thing tho fuckin hell]
      anyway i imagine a lot of this is available elsewhere but i'm guessing there's definitely some in here that isn't. maybe dig and share some gems. seemed maybe worth its own topic for sharing ones from this channel and similar era rarities stuff in the same vein...archive.org probably has some up there as well.
