Opaque – Delirium (Down Sluts Vol. IV) C30

Thomas Puopolo’s excellent Summer Interlude Records today released a new Opaque tape, a C30 entitled Delirium: Down Sluts Vol. IV. The Down Sluts series began as a trilogy of releases: the brief Intimacy (released digitally through James Killick’s Maniacal Laugh – just after another Opaque release on that same label, Moncler Hermine), Sensuality and EcstasyContinue reading “Opaque – Delirium (Down Sluts Vol. IV) C30”

The result was Duvetica Diadema Princess: a two-tape set housed in a double library case. The cassettes themselves are a marble lilac, with the fourContinue reading “Opaque – Duvetica Diadema Princess”

From the archives: horsing – Yukiko Okada (2008)

Although my first singularly wall venture was to be Panic, the first proper wall I ever recorded (outside of some experiments with static a few years earlier that had happened from a different point of departure entirely) was the track that would end up on the 4-way split Four On The Floor, released through CantankerousContinue reading “From the archives: horsing – Yukiko Okada (2008)”
