March 17th, 2015

So it is time to redo the showcase Mirror Universe Tapes and GIMME TINNITUS had planned right before the Gutter Ebola spectacle of 2014. Unfortunately, Dott and Be Forest are not available :/, but we have a killer Massauchusetts + Brooklyn lineup of artists featuring the jangly pop stylings of Boston’s Bent Shapes​, the spooky dramatics of Night Powers​, the shoegazey punk of Easthampton’s Kindling​ and the double bass post punk awesomeness of ​Decorum (ex Team Orca and Semi Femme). Plus, Ted of The Flag will be DJing. This show is happening this Saturday. Doors are at 8:45. It’s only $5. You should come out.

In preparation for the show, members of Night Powers​, Kindling​ and the Mirror Universe/Serenity Now crew hung out during yesterday’s GIMME TINNITUS Radio Time on Newtown Radio. You should probably listen to the mp3 of the show right now…

album stream :: Daniel Klag > Permutations

March 11th, 2015

New York-based ambient artist Daniel Klag has a new tape coming out on this Friday the 13th via Chill Mega Chill Records.

The album is entitled Permutations, and it is an experiment. Klag normally works with guitar and this is his first time using piano in the recording process. Each core track on Permutations is played with different variations.

Klag says:

I approached the individual tracks as sculptures, exposing the source material in its raw state, and melting away layers to reveal a soft interior.


Permutations will be available at on 3/13/15.

premiere :: Single Lash > Bitemarks

March 9th, 2015

Austin, TX doomy shoegazers Single Lash are putting out an excellent self-titled 62 minute album that is both dark and hypnotic. The music of Single Lash of springs forth from one Nicolas Nadeau (also of Slow Pulse) who is backed here by Colin Foster and Neil Lord (of Future Museums). The album has a C86 core that is plastered with fuzz and noise and features Nadeau haunting voice floating around it. Single Lash will be available to the public on April 7 via Mirror Universe Tapes. This right here is side one, track one. I don’t think I need to tell you, but turn this up, ok?
