Jettison Tape – Second Sleep

Jettison Tape

Jettison Tape released Second Sleep back in early January. The record, an instrumental effort, will have you imploring all the vivid color drops you’ve ever felt in your dreams. This album could easily back a lovely cerebral indie flick, the kind with long shots, pondering moments that witnesses the characters self-doubt, or profound discovery. Dave Fischoff, a Secretly Canadian alum, has made a record with a superb tight fit. Its neatly composed, simply presented. But simple doesn’t mean the sounds aren’t sublime or diverse. What I mean is the pace of the album is quite easy on the ears, I’m actually impressed with the patience on this record. Crafting music has many elements, none more important than the total package, the aim of progress via the performers mission. This seems like a breakthrough album for this Artist’s personal explorative evolution. Subtle tweaks that establish its transitions in such an amazing manner will have this playing for awhile, its just a damn good release. Well done sir! The cover is outstanding as well which was created by Donna Rickles. Second Sleep is available for a name your price. 

Home Alone Skyfall Dots

Home Alone

On the new release Home Alone picks up those same blown out sunglasses with his trademark “dark sun” feel. Tracks like “Melon Collie” transcend the desert wonderer, thirsty for H20. Instead, the consumption is colored dots in the sky and you eat them to survive. The new album Crumbs was just released on the wonderful Bad Pop label out of Mexico. A very choice decision on Thomas Mazurkiewicz part, aka bluntastic supreme. If you missed Teddybears & Weed which came out earlier this year, I encourage you to nab that as well. Both releases have soul searching instrumentals that end up dropping into memorable hooks, showing off Thomas’s super cool vocal delivery; a stone bleached, pass out style, which finds you laying downtown in the park. I’m really enjoying the track “Swaying” off this new joint. He’s clever with his beats, which gets me almost every time. Nab both releases for free.
