Kassette Klub is reissuing Hear Hums’ opus Psyche Cycles, one of our first and now long sold out releases.
“This hour long cassette is full of organic drones and joyous rhythms that make their current hometown of Gainesville, FL seem like hallowed ground. Although the focus is on sonic exploration it is still an extraordinarily coherent piece of music; one succinctly beautiful thought explored to the fullest.” -Kassette Klub

Liz and I just put together a mix called Lobos for one of our favorite blogs, Matinée as Hell, a Mexico City based joint. It’s a little eight song tribute to Point Lobos, one of our favorite places in the world, and how fondly we remember West Virginia. Hope y’all dig it! -Dwight
Check it out right over here.

Although we are once again delayed in announcing the latest Beko + Crash Symbols collaboration by a prohibitive schedule (read, my wedding on the other side of the country), we’re no less proud to present you with a new collection of beats, electro-pop, and beautifully smashed techno from the finest prodigies: Daniel Sex Jr., The Cyclist, Rimar, and Kites Sail High. If you only download one free thing this morning, consider making it this. If you already have it, consider getting an Egg McMuffin before McDonalds stops serving breakfast.
Up top, we’re streaming one of The Cyclist’s contributions, “See It” - you’ll love it.
Download it from our boys at Beko or grab it from us.

Pressed And is the intriguingly named collaboration of Andrew Hamlet and Mat Jones (with a surname like Hamlet, you have to imagine names are being taken at least a bit more seriously than usual), one of the hydra heads of a burgeoning southeastern electronic scene, that we’ve often seen in association with North Carolina’s Denmark Records. Their debut LP, Imbue Up, is a testament to that emergent milieu; some are calling it post-chillwave, but the reality is a more complex interplay of primal effects and synth landscapes, rife with tension in a cascading sequence of loops and glowing drones. This is an album of sensation, that lingers and mingles in ways you rarely expect and despite its coherence never quite master.

Preorder the limited edition cassette here - although we’re only streaming “Parties” for now, every preorder will get an immediate download of the entire album.

Today, I got interviewed on facebook by a magical genius dood: Christian Michael Filardo. He also made me into a .gif, Praise Jesus.
So today I got the chance to sit down with Dwight Pavlovic of Crash Symbols to pick his brain about fast cars, cassettes, and most of all music. Here is the interview I conducted and a bit of music from his super rad label!

So I did a label trade with Crash Symbols a little while back and was given a bulk of good tapes. Lone behold being who I am I didn’t get to them all right away and this week, I decided to listen to the only one I hadn’t listened to yet and that was Zeadron’s “Hold My Hand? No”. I was super stoked that I did, a mesh of dance, to ambient, to the occasional noise spurt here and this little cassette had me wanting more from the guy.
I would say it is definitely worth your time and you should pick one up if you have the paper! Check out Zeadron here!
Our pal Christian Michael Filardo, who runs the stellar Holy Page Records, has some kind words to say for the Zeadron tape we put out with Rebel Magazine earlier this year. The tape is sold out but you can still listen and grab the mp3s over here.
