Jordan Perry - QuaranTunes Series No.023 ( / )

12″ 45rpm Lathe. Edition of 26. Numbered. Looseleaf cover + back risograph printed at LOOKY HERE. original back cover painted / printed by TL AVAILABNLE on BANDCAMP On the evening of Friday Sept. 18, 2020, guitarist Jordan Perry joined our Zoom concert series from his home base in Charlottesville VA. The four pieces he played are beautiful examples of his stringed art — sparse, quietly angular and abstract, played with careful attention to details and also to shadows. Jordan’s music is full of tender twists, and the way he works with silence has the effect of suspending time for short bursts of otherness. His is a music to which listeners brings their attention as an active participant. It offers depths… Read more »

Chris Corsano, Paul Flaherty - QuaranTunes Series No.59 : Low Prices on Ancient Poetry ( / )

12″ Lathe. Edition of 52. Numbered. Risograph loose leaf cover / back art printed at LOOKYHERE. PLEASE NOTE – ONE LATHE PER CUSTOMER. BANDCAMP $60 Three brilliant tracks from the long running duo of Paul Flaherty’s sax and Chris Corsano’s drums. Recorded on the evening of Friday May 28, 2021 as part of Feeding Tube’s Quarantunes series, this was the pair’s first gig in almost two years, but their communicative interplay was no less instantaneous than ever. As the three pieces here prove definitively. Playing on a newly built porch in Deerfield MA, Paul’s attack was especially fiery coming out of the gate. The tone on his alto at the start of “Two Trillion Galaxies or So,” is so scorching… Read more »

Alison Cotton - QuaranTunes Series No.024 ( / )

12″ Lathe Edition of 26. Numbered. Risograph looseleaf cover and back art printed at LOOKYHERE. OUT OF PRINT Recorded on the evening of Friday Sept. 5, 2020 (Saturday morning where she was) at a secret location in London, this session captures Alison Cotton’s sound in gleaming late night clarity. All of the pieces, apart from “I Buried the Candlesticks,” are from one of Alison’s extant releases, but her approach to the material maintained a holistic feel shimmering with a ghostly precision.  Playing beautifully drone-canted viola, with the occasional glimmer of hanging wind chimes, Alison’s voice sounded incredible. Her work often has an out-of-time quality that makes its century of origin tough to nail down, but this performance was even more… Read more »

chik white - QuaranTunes Series No.56 ( / )

12″ Lathe Edition of 25. Numbered. Loose leaf cover + back art printed at LOOKYHERE. OUT OF PRINT On the evening of Friday May 27, 2021, Chik White performed one of the gnarliest sets of music heard during the entire QuaranTunes series. In the comfort of his Nova Scotia living room, Mr. White performed a sequence of sonic explorations of mouth-sounds that was as beautiful as it was staggeringly weird. Anyone familiar with either Chik’s album, Stranger Calls to Land (FTR363), or his many cassettes, has a basic idea of what he’s up to. His work with various jaw harps, toy trumpets and other breath-controlled devices has made people aware of the avant garde potential of a whole new panoply… Read more »

The Lentils - Budget Alchemy ( / )

12″ Lathe edition of 27. Numbered.  Original one of a kind cover art by Luke Csehak. OUT OF PRINT – Also available on cassette / digital from Flower Sounds  There’s a type of vanity that masquerades as ‘good taste’ in the world of recorded music. It suggests a musical teleology of a band’s recorded output which progresses from the lofi salad days to the hifi times of ‘clear intentions’ and ‘marked improvements’. Over time we come to expect these refinements as a type of courtesy to the industry at large. These progressions are often blandly linear, smoothly executed by so called ‘competent actors’ and showcase the holistic capture of our productive forces, pushing us to desire the refinement of affects….

Jon Collin - QuaranTunes Series No.030 ( / )

12″ Lathe Edition of 24. Numbered. Loose-leaf cover / back art printed at LOOKYHERE. Bandcamp link OUT OF PRINT  On the evening of Friday Nov. 6, 2020, the British guitarist, Jon Collin, played this bracingly original set of guitar music. Unlike the three LPs of his we have released (Water & Rock Music Vol. 1 FTR399, Vol. 2 FTR418, and Vol. 3-4 FTR534), this session was not done in the outdoors. Rather, it happened in the basement of a friend’s place in Stockholm, amidst a tableau filled with water pipes, electrical doodads, and lots of the other kinds of things with which basements are rife.  It’s hard to know whether his surroundings defined the parameters of his music, but Jon’s… Read more »

Frank Hurricane - QuaranTunes Series No.036 ( / )

12″ Lathe Edition of 19. Numbered. Loose leaf cover / back art printed at LOOKYHERE. OUT OF PRINT Just like everyone else Frank was more or less locked in place in the spring of 2020.  With a new record coming out and plans to take his first consistent backing band in years on tour, the pandemic brought Frank’s juggernaut energy to an unheard of stop.  From the first seconds of franks broadcast from his bedroom he comments on the strangeness of the situation as a “haunted zoom meeting, then starts into creekside cooler, a vibed out groover of his latest full length studio record and his first with a solid, gig hardened backing band.  Though I love the full band… Read more »

Sophie Cooper - QuaranTunes Series No.34 ( / / )

12″ single sided lathe Edition of 28. Numbered. Loose leaf risograph cover / back art printed at LOOKY HERE. Bandcamp $30 Sophie Cooper is  one of Yorkshire’s pre-eminent underground musicians. She can create anything from floating folk harmonics to ghastly noise manipulations, whilst appearing to have a most excellent time doing whatever it is she’s up to . I’ve heard Sophie play in more formats than I can easily recall, and she has released a couple of prior albums with Feeding Tube — Divine Ekstasy (FTR342, a sumptuous duo with Delphine Dora) and Plutonic Shine (FTR499, a sort of post-industrial psych LP by The Slowest Lift, her amazing partnership with VCO’s Julian Bradley).  Sophie promised us something “exciting” for the… Read more »
