ttc 019 Zack Kouns - Peter Denied Our Lord

zack Kouns,tired trails,peter denied our lord,cdr

Kouns has quite a varied & vast discography
filled with challenging creations that tend to
float in a religious stream a soot. & you get
the freak feeling when listening to him that he's
privy to a world you don't know about. Kouns sounds
like no one in your black book or record collection.
he's got his own way of telling the story & makes no
apologies about it. his voice gets tangled in between
speech & a solemn soaring swoon. & boy can he belt it
when called for.

"Peter denied Our Lord" consists of 10 tracks
about the various stages and types of denial.
Recorded in the woods at night- crickets, rain &
background hiss take the shape of instruments
in this epic tale of communion and refusal.
here Kouns favors the bluesy one note strum
lines & minimal accompaniment. dark downer
fucked folk vibes stirring in the branches -
often no chorus, no refrain - just storytelling
in full effect. past/current releases on bum tapes,
owness, clinical archives & others. soon to
have a cult like following to take over the world
with. deny and repent.

cdr comes in recycled packaging w/ various inserts.
front/back art by Kouns. edition of 22. $7 ppd us/
+ ship for world.

cdr : time: 34:47

ttc 018 a man & a guitar - to kill a dead man

a man & a guitar,tired trails,to kill a dead man,cdr

a man and a guitar. that's it. his thoughts,
his emotive resistance, his chorus, his steel.
'to kill a dead man' is a reminder that you don't
need fanciness to create something beautiful,
haunting and timeless. this album has that
tip your hat to the side kinda saloon vibe,
swaying into a gritty bar with a gun on your side,
ready to draw. your covered in the settling of dusk,
in desert sweat & dirt & your miles from any place
you'd call home. letting the chords ring and echo
then fade, allowing each string to take part in the
madness, AM/AG draws out the sounds that need pushing
& lets the others drop away. small swells of nearby
thunder fill the largest sky you've ever floated in.
paris, tx vibes for sure, with less texas twang & more
paris flare. seven tracks of grifter blues to burn your
double-dealing skin. sizzle sizzle.
(dedicated to derek bailey & neil young.)

cdr comes packaged in rad recycled packaging with
an art / poetry insert. front/back cover art by
aman&aguitar. edition of 25. $7 ppd us/ + ship for world

ttc 016 the Goodwillies - Tangerine Tape BURST c30

goodwillies,tired trails,tangerine tape burst,silver fox

while other artists are busy pounding away
on that trend-mill, tim goodwillie is off
building his own. taking a side winder route
through the tangerine tunnels of time,
goodwillie takes the lead in what i like to call
the race for intergalactic funk-manship. fuck bootsy
collins, goodwillie is here to spice up your summer
as your lo-fi noise groove captain. bruised beats
deliver some blows while smoky shaky synths get
sexy with the static of your brain in 'Pink Milk Plus.'
'Silver Fox' begins by banging your head against
a bass wall, then while you're distracted, the
funkiest fried groove within the galaxy bursts through,
tossing and tumbling around like shoes in the dryer.
amazing drunk junk pop from the synth samurai.
*side B:* A slow motion melody beaten and busted up
then shoved into the tiniest of holes. a thousand tons
of pressure being held back with a feather. like watching
an explosion in rewind. bad ass vibrations for your massive
pollution caused headaches. break through & BURST motherf*s!

Side A: Pink Milk Plus / Silver Fox
Side B: the Moist Contact of Different Metals

home real-time dubbed tapes, some blue some not,
two inserts- housed in recycled felt & citrus fabric.
edition of 44. $6 ppd us/ world get in touch.

ttc 015 donato epiro / throuRoof - tamandua's gorgeous dream drones c20

donato epiro,throuRoof,tamandua's gorgeous dream drones,tired trails donato epiro,throuRoof,tired trails

with a name like "tamandua's gorgeous dream drones,"
its not hard to imagine the news on this tape.
these two fine Italian artists bring us together
for some straight up anteater magic - dream journeys
with tunnel visions, flickering lights & fevered hallucinations.
Side A: donato epiro builds a river wall of white noise
in your head space, blurring your vision with the drone
of ants & gods & swingers. "Myrmecophagidae Musik"
sneaks up like a gang of shadows climbing towards the
jungle ceiling. slightly familiar, these are the sounds your
eardrums make when you blew them out the night before.
the ringing behind the reverberation expands & shakes with
earthquake like tremors until you & the vibrations are
one in the same.
Side B: throuRoof's "Fire Ants Mandibles" begins with
the sounds of the jungle at dusk. here is the hidden world
of animal communication & wind chatter. big black bugs
hollowing wood, some shift some scatter. your eyes are
jungle vines and grasses, swaying in a blistering breeze,
glistening in the last rays of sunlight. total amplification
of the illumination. anteaters unite.

clear tapes, home dubbed real time, housed in
recycled fern paper. comes with two inserts -
one with hand-written tape info, one art by throuRoof.
edition of 24. $6 ppd us/+ ship for world.
