Here's a funny story about this tape. We were really psyched to have a release on House of Alchemy as I was really into label head Adam's Chapels project and they had a lineup of some dope travellers like Rust Worship, Part Wild Horses Mane on Both Sides, Grasshopper, (VxPxCx) and many others.
We put in a lot of work to get everything done the way we wanted and sent off the tracks. We got the tapes (which were gorgeous) and gave a couple out. One person who received one told me that the side a and the side b were repeats. In all of our attempt to get the good shit out there, we royally fucked up. Adam had to re-dub the entire batch and we felt like total jerks for being not professional, but Adam is the nicest guy and didn't voice any complaint to us. In the end the tape is fantastic.
Here's what Byron Coley had to say about it-
Very abstract noise by a Baltimore duo whose grasp of form is either highly advanced or non-existant. Using electro-diddlers whose identity I cannot even guess at, they create a very nicely evolving series of events that range from the almost-knowable (scratching at bricks, then lifting up a guitar perhaps?) to the vilely arcane (marching through machine gullies with whisper helmets?). Whatever they're doing, it has the same logic as a very stoned 3D chess player.- Byron Coley in Wire Magazine, March 2012
