Massive double CD three way split slab of drone from Uton, I Am Just Pupil, and My Bizarre Bayuk on S.I.N.K. CDs. There's a ton of material here, mostly working in the vein of hazy distorted vagaries. I won't attempt to capture everything on offer in my usual 4 sentences, instead just dig on these samples, it's an easy 90 minutes of absolute through the floor tripping.
Edition of just 32 in a DVD style case. Black and white collage art. I grabbed from Tomentosa a while back. This one ain't exactly knew, and it's long gone, but can still stream in full and purchase the digital from the S.I.N.K Bandcamp.
Hand numbered edition of 100, double sided full color inserts, pro dubbed and imprinted with download code included. Grab direct from Spring Break Tapes.

HF07 Sindre Bjerga - Mutual Illusions
Improvised live manipulations from Norwegian composer Sindre Bjerga. Tape recorders, dictaphones, contact mics and microphones all captured raw over three separate performance spaces. Decontextualized samples stretched and scraped across the screaming howling mouth of an uncertain destination. Enlightenment gained in the margins.
Forty five hand assembled copies, professionally dubbed on chrome tape. Inserts duplicated directly on individual pages of a 1967 copy of the novel The Amsirs And The Iron Throne, by Algis Budrys.
HF08 German Army - Socotra ScriptureCaustic ritual suffocation from the mysterious and prolific duo of German Army. Something unknowable, that refuses to remain unknown. Rejections of anonymity. A heaving vomiting awareness of all that has been ignored, purging innocence through sonic abuse. Twelve exhibits, twelve sets of eyes entranced by the flames.
Forty five hand assembled copies, professionally dubbed on chrome tape. Inserts duplicated directly on individual pages of a 1962 copy of the novel The Wizard Of Linn, by A.E. Van Vogt.

Rad post everything beats from Topdown Dialectic with a self(un?)titled release on Aught. Plenty of things being written about this one (here and here for example), and all of it deserved. Four tracks of something that sounds like noise, industrial, glitch, and musique concrete all suffering maltreatment from over compression. Thick suffocating thump that's almost out of synch, but just perfectly so. It all crackles, hisses, and just about feels like it's going to fall apart, all while weaving in synth samples and sounds like they're playing in reverse. So dope.
Edition of 100, clear shells, really minimal white imprint, clear poly bag with no art or notes. Crazy minimal. Grab while you can from the Aught Bandcamp.

Edition of 200 pro dubbed and imprinted on orange. Double sided jcard, complete with track listing and synopsis of the Lo Fi Grandma, because heck if you're going to put out a tape like this, you better explain it right? Grab direct from Hornbuckle.
Edition of 100 pro dubbed and duplicated. Yellow shells, double sided inserts, digital copy included. Grab direct from Spring Break Tapes.
