MU28 Mr. Jenkins - In Transit/Sleep C30

From the South Carolina Lowcountry, but most recently based in NYC, Mr. (Nick) Jenkins has been regularly self-releasing stuff for about five years. This tape is two EPs, one released earlier this year (In Transit), and one brand new (Sleep). In Transit sort of expands on the 8-bit instrumental pop direction explored in his 8 Bits & Pieces album from summer 2010, while Sleep goes in a more extended, glitchier direction. This tape was released as part of Receiver Fest, which was from March 10-13 in Charleston, SC. We made 25 copies of this on red tapes. If it sells out we will make 25 more. If those sell out, I'm not sure what we'll do.
In Transit:
1. Afternoon Showers
2. Parade
3. Trains & Tobacco
4. For the Bartenders of The Huxton

1. TV Setback
2. Maybe, Yes. Maybe, No. (Ask Again, Later)
3. Sleep

SOLD OUT- MU23 Emperor X - Defiance (For Elise Sunderhuse) C50xC6loop SOLD OUT

Defiance (For Elise Sunderhuse) is a meditation on the nature of life and death. It is dedicated to a young woman who lost her life in a car accident in Missouri.

Here is the concept: the sides of the C50 are reverses of each other. Things whose meaning is obscured upon first listen reveal themselves later, and things that made sense before are now unintelligible. The "single" and title track is on the six-minute loop cassette, in both forward and backward forms. Listen to both at the same time, or each separately.

If your download code doesn't work, please contact us.
Limited to 50 copies. $8 plus s/h ($2.50)
