Erik Wangsvick returns with a new volume of WRECKED music for Patient Sounds (this is the 4th cassette of WRECKED music we have released). Recorded quite some time ago, before a move across country, from Colorado to New York City, this collection of fractured scrap yard junk pop and plunderphonic ambient noise is WRECKED and sharper than ever. Earnest and weird, full of fragmentary hooks and melodies and looming trashbarrel echoes. Ultimately damaged but loveable, like a rescue pet or a brilliant caveman. An outsider firmly aware of the limitations of normalcy, and unshakably comfortable making striking work with garbage. A bowerbird building a scrappy domicle from Radioshack trash. A note-worthy step forward in the evolution of this long-running rummage.
A Chicago ambient/drone fixture, the music of Cinchel focuses on texture and melody as story-telling devices in wordless music. A Sad Study in Temporal Dissonance finds Cinchel channeling guitar and electronics into complex compositions that both charm and elude listeners. Melodic waves sway across fields of bristling texture and languid rustling. A clock never runs out, but time vanishes before our very eyes. Chimes and bells mark the breeze with their tolling, their story telling, their time in memoriam.
Unlikely Friends is Charles Bert (Math and Physics Club), D. Crane (BOAT), Chris McFarlane (Jigsaw Records) and a rotating cast of thousands that currently includes Mark McKenzie (BOAT), Jackson Long (BOAT), and Ethan Jones (Math and Physics Club).

After returning from summer 2016's European tour, Terry set about writing a new album of songs. These are now grouped together as 'Remember Terry', an album full of wish fulfilment, critiqued characters, memorial muscle and historical hustle.
I named the album 'Otaku' to poke fun at myself and my love for anime/Japan. It also falls in line with Lofi Hip Hop's obsession with the anime aesthetic. I always joke with my friends that I'm a step away from getting a body pillow. I also wanted to explore the stigma behind it and question its definition. I don't think people should judge each other so harshly.
awakebutstillinbed - what people call low self-esteem is really just seeing yourself the way that other people see you - 2018
Tara Stark Raw, unfiltered angst in musical form. You don't have to see yourself in these words for them to resonate with you. And a variety of dynamic gives me chills more than simple-instrumentation punk has any business doing.
