CS Edition of 200 Pro-Dubbed Cassettes. Bandcamp Magic Tuber Stringband is Durham NC-based duo, made up of Evan Morgan and Courtney Werner. Their primary instruments are guitar and fiddle, but they are not married to these particular axes and follow their instincts when they feel other instruments are called for. Playing music with its bite rooted in the Piedmont tradition, Magic Tuber mostly write their own material, while exploring and expanding dynamics of string interaction that are as old as the hills. Treading a line that begins in equal parts of blues and Anglo-Scottish lineage, they introduce different motific elements at points. “Teo’s Farewell” has a central portion with a very Middle Eastern feel. “Wood Thrush Song” is a modernist… Read more »
CS Edition of 135. How happy we are to present the debut cassette by this new, scrambled Massachusetts trio. The Impenitents line-up includes Salem’s always wonderful Andrea Pensado, whose previous releases for the label are the Without Knowing Why LP (FTR 203), Los Condenados’ Yeppers LP (FTR 126) both of which display different aspects of berserk invention mixed with pure charm. On Lip Therapy she is in charge of vocals and some electronics. This is Erik Browns’s Feeding Tube debut, although he has shared releases with folks like Belltone Suicide, Noise Nomads and Limbs Bin while recording as Wish for Skin, Scald Hymn or one of his other various operational noise-handles. His job here involves electronics and scrap metal. Andy… Read more »
CS Edition of 200. Download slip included. Bandcamp Feeding Tube is excited to announce the first new release in a good long while by Michael R. Bernstein, one of the central figures in the sub-underground scene of the late ’90s onward. Back when he was still based in NYC, Bernstein played and recorded extensively with Double Leopards and Religious Knives, and also ran the important Heavy Tapes imprint. After that he relocated to the DC area, eventually opening the excellent HR Records (one greater DC’s best stores). Some time in the last year, Mike decided to start making some music and passed along a few files. This cassette, subtitled Meditations and Realizations for Five Voice, is a documentation of these… Read more »

CS Edition of 200 Cassette reissue of a legendary LP, recorded live in Ottawa at the Dominion Tavern on March 23, 2012 during Damo’s Canadian tour. Originally released in an edition of 100 on the band’s own Birdman Sound label, this set finds the peripatetic Can singer (who, like Chuck Berry before him, tends to play with instrumental backing by local talent) in some of the best company he has yet found. TBWNIAS (in septet format this evening) lay down thick slabs of the distended heavy guitar psych with which they’ve made their rep. But they’re always had underground Germanic influences that surface in their work, so when Damo switches into Tago Mago mode, they are on it, with exquisite… Read more »
CS Edition of 150. FTR is excited and honored to be working with the Virginia-based guitarist, Jordan Perry, again on his new cassette. Our previous work with Jordan began with a reissue of his eponymous 2017 debut LP originally released by Good Cry Records (FTR 376), and was followed by vinylization of his self-released 2018 cassette, Witness Tree (FTR465). Both of these albums are fantastic blends of folk technique and avant strategies, and the same can be said of this new cassette, Changing Always Who Is Waving to Us. Comprised of four pieces longer than the work on those earlier albums, the material was recorded earlier this year, originally just as a way to document some improvisations. Jordan returned to… Read more »

CS-32 Edition of 50. Numbered. Riso Printed jcard and labels by LookyHere Temporary out of stock. Bandcamp Most splendid new tape by world-traveller, Matt “MB” Jones. Joined on two tracks by fellow restless maniac, Mike Watt, Jones gets back into something akin to his “old swing.” The music on NOSCI NOFI returns to his avant K-Pop roots, with many dubby and psychedelic touches spattering the super catchy surface-moves he creates. There are female co-vocals on a couple of tracks, and some Korean drumming to go along with Watt’s bass groovulation. There is also a paean to orgasmic female gushing that acknowledges the importance of vibrational assistance in achieving results, which shows that Matt has what might be called a… Read more »
