Myriam Gendron - Ma Delire ( / )

SECOND PRESSING – Quebec City edition. 2LP. Bandcamp link. / CD Edition of 800. / Cassette Edition of 200. 2nd Edition  – It has been a while since the release Myriam’s acclaimed 2014 debut album, Not So Deep As a Well (FTR 148). The intervening years have brought a smattering of live performances, a bouquet of children, Trump’s Pandemic, and much more. For someone who likes to read and ponder as much as Ms. Gendron does, there has been plenty to mull over. Different concepts for a new album were broached, but the seed of Ma Delire was planted when Myriam recalled a paper she written in university. It was about Leonard Cohen’s recording of “The Lost Canadian (Un canadien… Read more »

The Band Whose Name Is A Symbol - Biker Smell ()

CS Edition of 100. Pro-dubbed. Included DL with CS. Risograph covers printed at LOOKY HERE. New cassette issue of the third LP by TBWNIS. This was the final album recorded by the original quartet iteration of the band during the Fall and Winter of 2009 in Ottowa. 100 copies were released by Birdman Sound in 2010, then Cardinal Fuzz did another edition of 100 in 2018, apart from the 100 to be included in the anthology box, II.  The band at this time was Mark McIntyre, John Westhaver, Bill Guerrero and Nathaniel Hurlow, and they were throwing down brain-thunderous instrumental thug-psych juice like maniacs. You can pick up small glimmers of lifted riffs in spots, but playing this album will… Read more »

Delphine Dora & Jackie McDowell - The Dream of Change ()

CS Edition of 150. OUT OF PRINT The initial collaborative seed for The Dream of Change was planted back in 2016 when Delphine Dora invited Jackie McDowell to release some of her solo work on her now-defunct micro-label, Wild Silence. This invitation resulted in McDowell’s masterfully crafted drone-folk song cycle, New Blood Medicine. Fast forward two years to when Dora was immersed in the process of recording, L’inattingible, her most ambitious and highly orchestrated full length, and she once again reached out to McDowell to provide some vocal arrangements for a few pieces on the album. Given their affinity for wide-reaching folk songcraft and avant composition, along with their shared interests in poetry, literature, nature, and inner inquiry, Dora and… Read more »

Tashi Dorji - dead cities lie buried / lift comrades, lift comrades! ()

CS Edition of 100 OUT OF PRINT This new tape by Asheville NC’s Tashi Dorji is a hard-edged suite for solo acoustic guitar recorded in the depths of the Plague. Because I’ve been listening to Remko Scha a lot lately, it’s impossible for me to not-imagine the music here (especially the title track) as an extension of the marvelous Machine Guitar works by that great Dutch artist.  Tashi is known for creating harsher acoustic tones then many of his contemporaries, but that often seems more based on his decisions to constantly disrupt melodic expectations inside his work. On “dead cities lie buried…” his approach has a massive circular logic, in which small sonic events take place behind a revolving, repetitive… Read more »

Byron Coley, Ted Lee - As Seen In Your Wildest Dream ()

CS Edition of 150. Co-Released with Lost Treasures Of The Underworld Tom Derwent (major domo of the Lost Treasures of the Underworld label) was in a bit of a pickle. In order to win a bet, he had drunkenly told a friend his next release would be “an ode to the power of Mouth Breathing Baldies” (MBBs in the parlance of the day). This was a stone lie, but it set him to thinking about what sort of release might interest the the MBB community. After a few more drinks, he decided it should be a spoken word plus jazzy percussion session, somewhere between Beryl Williams’ Giggles for Guzzlers and Hal Blaine’s Psychedelic Percussion.  When he googled “MBB underground” he… Read more »

PG Six & Louise Bock - All Summer Long is Gone ()

CS Edition of 100. OUT OF PRINT  This is a cassette preview of an amazing instrumental pandemic album recorded by this somewhat unlikely duo. The LP will be out whenever things get backer to normaler. But the cassette is here NOW! PG Six (aka Pat Gubler) is based in the New England and is known for his mastery of many stringed objects. He has appeared on six earlier Feeding Tube LPs, the most recent of which is the great PG Six Live at the Tavern (FTR 556). Louise Bock (aka Taralie Peterson) is a multi-instrumentalist long associated with both the Midwest and Spires That in the Sunset Rise, but she has other axes in the fire as well, and has… Read more »

Horse Boys - III/IV ()

CS-60 Edition of 200. Pro-dubbed. 2010. No download included. Brattleboro wunderkind Zach Phillips wows us again with an hour long journey through modernist piano fugues, half-exhumed pop oddities and sound collages.  This is Phillips third and final album as Horse Boys, as recent shifts in recording technology have enabled him to produce audio missives of shimmering beauty*.  Until these newer works get issued, this tape is the best available view into this prolific youngsters magical universe

Magic Tuber Stringband - When Sorrows Encompass Me ‘Round ()

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 »

The Impenitents - Lip Therapy ()

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 »

Michael R. Bernstein - Slower Learn ()

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 »
