The Celestial Music Of Comfort Link

(Spleencoffin - SP39) Cassette $6.00 (Out-of-stock)

Slow-moving compositions of layered tape loops, deteriorating mechanical tape echoes, found sounds and spontaneous tape collage. An album full of density and texture with hiss-laden traces of lost melody. Our friends at the Cassette Gods blog compare it to interstellar resonance: “As the samples repeat and deteriorate, the audio, piped in from another place, causes feelings of discovery. It broadcasts the gradual thinning of a veil that separates worlds, exposing the frayed edges of lost portals.” Covers and cassette labels are hand-made from 1920s letterpress celestial diagrams with typewriter text. Opaque red cassettes. C40. Edition of 50.
