Grandma Lo-Fi - The Basement Tapes of Sigríður Níelsdóttir

Charming and quite unbelievable mix of lo fidelity experimentation from 70 year old Icelandic Sigríður Níelsdóttir with Grandma Lo-Fi: The Basement Tapes of Sigríður Níelsdóttir on Hornbuckle Records. Some of the 21 tracks feel like straight up lounge music one man band type of jams, others like lullabies, others just truly out there. Mad cap creativity given a Casio and a 4 track recorder an no inhibitions. This is (according to the label description), a selection of tracks from a documentary film of the same name, and while I haven't done my research this appears to be an absolutely legit story. I'm still in the process of digesting this almost hour long tape, and am having a ball with it.

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.
