All hail Decrepit Tapes! It's a download blog thingy that seems to specialize mostly in out of print sonic esoterica, which me thinks makes it acceptable to share here. Most of these things operate under the precondition that if ya like it, buy it; if ya don't, delete it. When it comes to something as amazing as the Un Plays the Non Hits For You tape, which has probably been impossible to find for well over a decade, I fully endorse the upload/download. More current ensembles like Hototogisu, Fursaxa and the Double Leopards can all be traced back to this zonked out crude noise meets collapsed folk blissout. Charalambides and Tower Recording fans will love it. Lots of other highly recommendable titles to be heard too. I'm happily decimated, myself.
In out there collaboration news, take a look at this story from LA Weekly's Off The Record blog, about the forthcoming collabowork of grim art between Womblife faves, Xasthur and Marissa Nadler. Not really such a stretch if you think about it. Can't wait to hear the results!
Scooting out the door to see these guys at The Granada tonight. Woo-hoo!
