Arrange Plantation tapes out now

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Though many have gone during the pre-order there’s still some copies of the much lauded long player ‘Plantation’ from ambient R&B artist Arrange. The tapes really bring out the warmth and depth of what is already a great sounding album. In case you’ve missed it there’s much good reading material on the interwebs that support the case for why not to miss this one (see p4k’s full review). Pickup a tape (7$) and stream and download the whole thing here. In addition to the tape you can head over to the Arrange bandcamp to snag the limited vinyl.

Alchemist to release Arrange’s debut ‘Plantation’ on tape

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

We are happy to announce that we’ll be releasing a c30 cassette of the excellent debut lp ‘Plantation’ from ambient R&B artist Arrange! Arrange is the work of one Malcom Lacey of Florida who’s been quietly dishing out free releases for a bit. You needn’t look far to find many accolades being showered on this new album including Pitchfork’s review of track ‘When’d You Find Me ?’ which they describe as “Patient and quietly stunning”. Much of it is patient and evolving but there’s also plenty of R&B jammers in there and some nice voice and piano led pieces too. It’s a remarkably confident and well designed debut from a new talent full of promise.
Good new music like this deserves to be heard on the warm and pleasing analog greatness of cassette. As usual this one is pro dubbed on hi bias chrome tapes. The artwork was handled by awesome collage maestro Jesse Treece.
The tape drops on July 12th for 7$ you can pre order and stream the whole thing here.

Free mp3s with tape purchase

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

We’ve been getting a lot of requests for free mp3s with the purchase of a tape so, as of today it’s on! Buy any tape and we’ll send you a link to the mp3 files in 320k form. Everybody’s hip to it with vinyl but it makes sense to do the same for the awesomeness that is the portable analog wonder of cassette tapes. If you’ve already bought a tape and want the digital version send us a shout and we’ll get on it.

Jours Avec Jennie tape out nowwwwwww

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

In the words of the astute blog Auxiliary Out, “Vermont pop genius Zach Phillips (Horse Boys, Sord, Nals Goring, OSR Tapes etc.) has delivered unto us a motherf***in’ faux-French masterpiece”. We are pleased to say this incredibly unique c30 cassette is now available for a mere 7$ here. Written and recorded in a mere 8 days this tape is part of the prodigious output of 12 albums that Zach has been streaming out over the last year under many different guises and on many different labels including Feeding Tube, Night People and his own OSR tapes. We are stoked to be putting out what stands as one of his most brilliant and accessible albums. This will apparently be the one and only album to bear the GDC name and this is an edition of 100 so get one whilst the getting is good. For more information on the world that is Zach Phillips see his blog and if you haven’t done it yet check out this standout track and attune your eyeballs to some photos of the tapes in all of their multi-hued glory:
