Two lovely and raw smoky-folk droners here, originally presented in the "cassingle" format for your frequent flipping pleasure. This drafty pair of guitar / electronics / vocal arrangements provide an excellent aural backdrop for your deep winter hibernation tactics. Sweeping horns, faded finger-picking and pastural feedback drones combine with low frequency rumbles, eerie reverb tank wailing and low volume washes of fuzz to form brief but deeply atmospheric and meditative environments perfect for some of those late February "no-talking" times. Put this tape on and sweep the floor. Real time duplicated purple translucent shell cassette w/ lacquer sealed full color floral pattern labels comes packaged with a matching full color fold out double sided card stock J-card in a clear Norelco case. Beautiful, psychedelic, simple and real.

"... a kind of psychedelic guitar drone attempting to conceal the evidence of song made by indecipherable caterwauling vocals as effects take it away from the hippy campfire into the ether."
