Store-wide cassette sale! Psych-folk cabaret from the mind of Olympia composer Jeff Shannon. Surprising arrangements and dream-logic lyrics in soundscapes of uncommon textures. Sinisterly absurd. Infectiously unusual.

Hand-stamped covers with a hand-cut stamp by Jillian Chaplain. Tapes are protected with a (removable) bandage. Paper insert with short poetic-prose essay on the There Will Be Casualties concept (emotional bandages, the armor of habitual protection, a mask of disguise or defense)...[ continued ]

Store-wide cassette sale! Long-running Portland freak-folk band Pelican Ossman returns with their best yet. The Touchstone is a perfectly bizarre record of experimental garage pop with odd rhythms and group sing-alongs. 

Released through Ewe of Now Recordings. On handsome yellow cassettes. Listen on Bandcamp...[ continued ] Pelican Ossman- The Touchstone

Otherworldly hammered dulcimer lushness. Surprising, largely instrumental, with splashes of Dorothy Carter's mystical Malvina Reynolds-esque vocals.

Smartly hand-printed and designed. Released on Why the Tapes Play Records.

Last copy! Every time Philly avant-pop genius Kate Ferencz releases something, we at Antiquated Future freak out. What Was the World, Ferencz's latest, is yet another stunning work of oddball anthems about the devil, enemies, and heaven. And with producer Height Keech providing the beats, it's a whole new take on the Kate Ferencz sound.

Released on Cold Rhymes Records...[ continued ]

Employing a wide range of instruments to create its soundscape magic—piano, viola da gamba, cello, brass instruments, guitars, cassette tapes. The side project of Bryce Hample of Reighnbeau.

Recorded by Nicholas Wilbur at The Unknown in Anacortes, Washington.
