Intriguing excerpts:

Chik White – Jaw Works & Behind a Dead Tree on the Shore
“Listening to it is disorientating, but in a good way, like falling down the barrel of a kaleidoscope.”

Ben Owen – Birds and Water, 4
“… a kind of anti-sublime state similar to the kind of Zen egolessness you can achieve when contemplating the peaks or oceans of the natural world.”

Jack Harris & Samuel Rodgers – Primary / Unit 11
“It’s lovely, at times unsettling, stuff, like eavesdropping on a neighbour as they go about their everyday business as builders start demolishing a house in the distance.”

Haptic – Excess of Vision: Unreleased Recordings, 2005-2014
“[The track] ‘And Otherwise’ is noisier from the off, with a hissing rustle that sounds like we’re in a field full of cicadas while someone stomps around in the background. The whole feel is artificial rather than natural, a broken simulacrum of a bucolic idyll.”

All tapes are available, but in limited quantities
