Sparkling Wide Pressure - Dream of Windows

Sparkling Wide Pressure - Dream of Windows (Tranquility Tapes) C40
Cascades of acoustic and electric guitar picking meet otherworldly keyboard melodies, confounding cassette playbacks, and low-fi drum machine beats. Baugh's voice regularly seeps into the mix like a mournful ghost singing arcane poetry as he plays with vocal manipulations and syncopation in even more off-kilter ways than usual. Altogether, it adds up to another brilliant piece of an already astonishing catalog that melds the strange and the beautiful in ways that few others can. Pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle. Comes with a free digital download.

Noosphertilizer  (Aubjects) 2xC60
This is a super cryptic four way split double cassette featuring The Big Drum in the Sky Religion, Gods of the Dead (Geoffrey Sexton and Frank Baugh), Tired Light, and Dmitri Zherbin. I haven't heard anything else from the label since this came out so that kind of adds to its mystery. Weird textural/cosmic packaging covers two tapes full of deep digging abstract soundscapes. My offering is a live collaboration with Geoffrey Sexton which we call Gods of the Dead. The other sides are excellent and range from low fidelity grind to spaced out dream drones.
