Warbly grain fills the spectrum on Babe, Terrors new “Perdizes Campe Seniors”. A haunted tinged 12 minute looper thats video is an abstraction collage of old movies, basketball, and some other transposed weirdness. All pretty heady, and potently fitting for the neo-cassette-culture-movement. The new Tape came out on Glue Moon. Listening through it has a dark drone appeal. The constant looping sounds that smash against the tide, are possibly being transmitted by some beat box over top the valley. Almost a warning signal that some Walking Dead shits about to happen. There’s an anarchy to all this, the album starts to get into a discernible music tone on “Berlin Trendy Lifters & Halterofillists” but it’s still filled with this chase. This record is looming, something is going to happen, I just hope I grow wings before then so I can fly my family out of dodge. Seriously worth the listen, for me it’s about exploring what Babe, Terror is thinking with his decisions on College Clash. Two parts Art Installation, one part music. Pretty cool. Tapes are 6 bucks on Glue Moon, digi 8 dollars via Babe, Terror. A stand out track for me was B2 “Nairobi Party Loners & Trashhopers”.
“College Clash” is a tribute to american college basketball, telling a story of secret college meetings and sports battles in a forest camp.” ~ Glue Moon Tapes
2012 was an interesting year for Holly and me. We learned we’d become parents, due date late January 2013. Our son’s name is Cove, he now is the proud owner of years of collecting music, and a few choice instruments. My first album came out under Nomadic Firs, which had so many weird, and exciting moments. With those two big items I give you this random list, which is a collection of Artists I heard getting played over and over again in our house. These are some of the folks that took me out of my own creations, and allowed me to just be a fan of music again. Something I honestly misplaced, and the reason I do this site. So cheers to all of you for making this last year fun for us, we appreciate it.

Autosave from Chicago, released The Memoir, which is part of an upcoming EP called Nightmares and Landscapes. The song is quite spacious, resting in movie score status, which is why I like it so much. It’s really the back drop to a short yet to be made. An epic tune with an opening sample that pulls you into the cave to hear a special message from the face. There’s plenty of ambient ritual esque atmosphere going on here, with some well-played spoken word. Then the song shifts into the main theme, which has the enough candy like noise to bring those purple colors out from the dark. Well done dudes.
