Jim Shepard - The Letter Tapes ()

CS82 Edition of 99. Numbered. Comes with Download Code. THRENODY  BOOKLET LETTERS / TRACK LISTING  OUT OF PRINT!  CS-82 SECOND PRESSING It has been two decades since Jim Shepard died. In the intervening time, large parts of his crazy DIY ethic (shared by such fellow travelers as Mike Rep, Tommy Jay, Ron House and Don Howland) has wormed its way close to the surface of the sub-underground slag heap, at least now and then. But really, it’s an outsider stance. Not hewing to any actual tradition apart from a strange form of rugged individualism, practiced in the name of art. The Letter Tapes is a compilation of material Jim sent to his buddy, Nudge Squidfish. Nudge had moved from Columbus… Read more »

Mette Rasmussen / Tashi Dorji - Mette Rasmussen / Tashi Dorji ( / )

Tour CS with Download Slip Edition of 200 LP Edition of 250 with Download.  Mette Rasmussen is a Danish saxophonist, based in Norway, who has been recording with some of our favorite players (Chris Corsano, Alan Silva, Mats Gustafsson, Ace Farren Ford, etc.) She has also formed this duo with Asheville-based guitarist, Tashi Dorji (whose combo, Manas, has had two LPs on Feeding Tube this far — FTR208 & FTR330). The duo material for this LP was recorded in Montreal, right around the same time Mette and Tashi recorded a trio set for Trost (with the addition of drummer Tyler Damon). And it’s all great stuff. Mette’s playing has a raw tonal approach that makes one think of Eric Dolphy… Read more »

Of Thousands - Of Thousands ()

CS17 Edition of 150 Of Thousand’s bandcamp Debut release by this very hep Boston duo made up of Arian Shafiee (Guerilla Toss) and Mia Friedman (Hollow Deck). Not particularly reminiscent of any of their ur-groups, the music from Of Thousands blends keys, strings, voices, electronics and loops into avant garde chamber sput with surly attitudinal content. One is reminded of the opening line os X Ray Spex’s “Oh Bondage, Up Yours!,” at least in terms of conceptual approach. Because while the audience is anticipating a tongue load of sugar, what’s delivered is a load more resembling porcupine quills. The most facile comparisons are to small bits found on the albums of European art rock legends like Slapp Happy and Vibraslaps, but… Read more »

Matt Robidoux - 3 Pieces ()

CS Edition of 150 He is probably best known for guerrilla show promotions in Western Mass, and his work with “rock” units like Speedy Ortiz, Curse Purse and Graph. The Three Pieces project, however, is the first example of Matt’s compositional work. On this tape, MR leads a quintet including Andy Allen (Hollow Deck), Tom Crean (Banjo Assault), Victor Signore and Jeremy Starpoli (Squidlaunch). Using winds, keys, reeds and strings, these five play three of Matt’s written works, focused equally on place and technique. Two of the works focus on microtones, and the third is based on pitch controlled simultaneous improvisation. It’s a goddamn revelation of a tape for anyone who thinks of Matt as the noise-squirrel he so often… Read more »

Jurt Banch - Jurt Banch ( / )

Jurt Banch, 128pp, 2016, 2nd Pressing (Edition of 100) with 20CS (Edition of 15) The perennial tradition of Western Massachusetts-based art collectives continues with Jurt Banch. Never intended for public consumption, the original limited print run of this book became known by outside parties and a second edition has been made available due to popular demand. Consisting of more than 100 pages of poetry and portraiture, Jurt Banch pushes the limits of the “Exquisite Corpse” technique into various methods of artistic expression. A true collaborative effort, this book will enter you into a dreamscape of characters living undecipherable lives of their own, smiling back at you from the pale pulp of the future. What are YOU doing next Tuesday night?… Read more »
