Artist: AFTERNOON PENIS
Title: In The Evening
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Nate Nelson is the Afternoon Penis and "In The Evening" is his solo debut. Nate also pounds in Mouthus, White Rock, and Religious Knives, and brings a truly homemade vision that has managed to sustain several haircuts. Dont ask us to explain that. A truly "in-house" affair, with mysterious false start B-side and classic REAL REAL REAL zone -- grunts, unts, stunts, pounds, drounds and blown out sounds." - Heavy Tapes.

Artist: BLACK QUARTER
Title: Sodomy ESP
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"After the Gematria debut, Maya Miller returns with her second solo effort, the highly anticipated "Sodomy ESP." Recorded in one take in deep-afternoon haze deer-skull-on-the-table statement style, Maya closes her eyes, rocks back and forth, and blasts a magnetic mono hymn with organ and tone-vox. Like trying to figure out how the hell "Nelil" Young plays guitar and harmonica at the same time, on the same beach, circa the invention of the honey slide. At 4 RPM. Last round of warmup jams before the Ecstatic Peace LP drops. First black and white HT cover since the first few tapes -- feel free to color "it" in." - Heavy Tapes.

Artist: CAMPBELL, NEIL
Title: Teasel/Thistle
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
""Teasel/Thistle" is a shimmering and bright reaction to bright stars floating in the fog above the Western Half of the United States. Meditation and meditation and meditation and meditation is listening to this tape -- like switching it on and off and on and off, this twenty-eight minute ride can ACTUALLY take you there! Take our word for it. Neil has played with the A-Band and Vibracathedral Orchestra, and has recently cut a million melted slabs as "Astral Social Club." - Heavy Tapes.

Artist: DOUBLE LEOPARDS
Title: Gematria
Format: Double Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"The first of hopefully many cassette only full-length albums by Double Leopards on Heavy Tapes. Recorded in the Summer of 2005.  Four sides, and we each get one: Curtis (Chris), Black Quarter (Maya), Zaimph (Marcia), and Workbench (Mike) recording something privately and with the band in mind.  Curtis and Black Quarter bring it for the first time solo, and Workbench and Zaimph are clearly channelling some new heavy shit.  If youve ever wondered who in Double Leopards is doing what, this will only make you more confused.  These sides take you through vocal worlds and guitar streams, tape hiss and choking organs, beast speak and private conversations.  Please join us.  In double cassette vinyl album with full color artwork, custom labels, and creeped insert." - Heavy Tapes.

Country: USA
Price: $10.00
SOLD OUT

Artist: FAILING LIGHTS
Title: Dismal Winds
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Failing Lights is Mike Connelly, who also plays in Hair Police, Wolf Eyes, and runs the Gods of Tundra label. His work in the mentioned bands is incredible, deranged and shows his uncanny ability to work with other powerful players, always to synergistic ends. With "Dismal Winds," Connelly starts a strange dance with some electronic devices that seem to be confounded by themselves: a sludgy, clogged, and choked affair. A short and thick burst, this is dark, bass-heavy, and "just right." - Heavy Tapes.

Price: $10.00

Artist: FULLERTON WHITMAN, KEITH
Title: A Bogan Apocalypse
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"One of the people on our original wish list for the "Solo Synth" series, Keith Whitman offers three pieces which invoke various intense mental landscapes through melodic sweeps, pulsing bass, scrambled signals, and more discernable electric speak. You think the ground is new and the water is still flowing, but its just inverted, and instead they stand to reflect your thoughts inward -- hard to explain, but easy to enjoy." - Heavy Tapes.
SOLD OUT

Artist: GRIMLEY, TOM
Title: Never Mind the Abstention, Heres the Semi-Automatic
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"This tape is a series of recordings of an automated electronic ensemble - independent agents designed and built by Tom Grimley to perform his music for him. Side "A" includes studies for the full piece and the full recording of "Never Mind..." while side B contains "Studies for a New Trio." Both of these recordings are remarkably new and fascinating -- new and unheard voices interact and produce something that warrants close attention -- there are layers of discussion and projection, hums, creaks, whistles, throbs, and more. First in a planned series of projects with Heavy Tapes and Tom." - Heavy Tapes

Artist: INSAYNGEL
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"LP edition of 500, full color printed covers We saw Insayngel play some time in 2008 or maybe the end of 2007 at Glasslands. Immediately we said to each other "This band needs to have a record out. Lets do it." We talked to the band after the gig and they were down -- it was recorded, mastered by our friend Todd Cavallo, and sent off to the plant. Insayngel is Calder, Caitlin, Richard, and John. Calder and Caitlin are Vizusa and used to jam Excepter, and Richard and John are the brutal rhythm unit of Sightings. An intriguing combination of players to say the least, this LP brings a 30th Century sound to the history of New York City. The locked, wrecked rhythms, desparate, gorgeous wails, and shredded, anxious guitars are symphonic, undulating, impossible. A serious now vision that impressed us deeply enough to be the first LP weve ever done. Art by Calder, pressed in Brooklyn, New York." -Heavy Tapes

Artist: JAZZFINGER
Title: Tour of the Moors Volume 1
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Jazzfinger have managed to span chronology and geography with their destructive path of sonic dedication and abandon. This tape collects two live performances where the group floats recorders, voices, and electricity through the channels and pipes of a true clutch of old school heads -- a very worthwhile picture indeed." - Heavy Tapes.

Artist: MAGNETICRING
Title: Debris Magnetiques
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Magneticring is Josh Stevenson of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. "Debris Magnetiques" is the first in a series of "solo synth" tapes on Heavy Tapes. Here Josh uses a EMS Synthi, a cracklebox, and his ecstatic electromagnetic field to produce a cut up, deep sounding crack of electricity and momentum. Very different in flow and form from most Heavy Tapes releases, this focuses on the gush and rush and is a great head cleaner." - Heavy Tapes.

Artist: MILLER, MAYA
Title: Notebooks
Format: Book
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Notebooks is a collection of 113 drawings culled from notebooks, scraps, and transparencies over a period of 5 years, perfect-bound in a white glossy cover and brought to you by Heavy Tapes. Expect to find yourself caught in a landslide of stony faces, worms, ying yangs, nudity, recipes, slogans and aphorisms, all lovingly illustrated by Maya Miller at her home in Brooklyn, New York. Signed and numbered, 2nd Edition of 100." - Heavy Tapes.
SOLD OUT

Artist: MILLER, MAYA & MIKE BERNSTEIN
Title: Notbooks 1-3
Format: Book
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"M&M have been drawing together since their first date almost four years ago, when they traced rappers from an issue of Murder Dog using disappearing ink.  Here are the first three of many Notbooks which will continue to document (very irregularly) these ongoing experiments." - Heavy Tapes. Edition of 100.
SOLD OUT

Artist: NELSON, NATE
Title: Rope Pores
Format: Book/CDR
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Rope Pores" is the second in a series of books presented by Heavy Tapes in an attempt to document the amazing visual talents and obsessions of some of contemporary experimental musics finest practitioners. Nate Nelson plays drums, percussion, and electronics in the 21st-century caveman destruction group Mouthus, and also lends his amazing talents to keep the beat for NY out-rock group Religious Knives. Fans may know his visual work from the series of covers he has done for the nearly 20 CDRs released by Mouthuss "Our Mouth" label, which range from tight and thin towers of ink to overblown contrasting visions. "Rope Pores" is a repetitive and incredible journey toward scraping away the painfully thin layer separating the concrete and the abstract. Through thin lines, tight pockets, and sprawling organic structures, Nelson presents an intense and storied vision, along with an accompanying and beautiful piece of music -- a tape composition composed over roughly the same period of time that the visual work was being completed. Edition of 100, signed and numbered by the artist." -Heavy Tapes.

Artist: ORGANS
Title: What It Sounds Like Inside You
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"Organs is Spencer Yeh and Ron Iovae and "What it Sounds Like..." is an audio document of an internal ascent/descent that mirrors and mirrors and finally collapses.  Two pieces recorded probably crouched in a corner somewhere, freshly ripped up magazines and negatively charged electrons everywhere -- this reaches levels of total weirdo intensity and showcases some pretty out theories about how "music" should "flow."  A great addition to the already staggering bodies of work by these two sound professors." - Heavy Tapes.

Artist: RELIGIOUS KNIVES & THE HAUNTING
Title: Live in the Cove
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"When youre "a couple," theres nothing better than finding another couple that you connect with. Here, husband and Wife teams Religious Knives and The Haunting (Mike and Tara Connelly) hook up for a late night pyjama jam after a full evening of eating, drinking, and relaxing. We knew we were friends, but would the jams work out? I think we found out that we have as much in common in terms of sound and approach as we do in taste for food and wine. Creaking, reverb, a jar full of marbles, and a lot of atmosphere. You dont need to be full and sitting by candlelight to enjoy this, but it helps." - Heavy Tapes.
SOLD OUT

Artist: RELIGIOUS KNIVES/AIRPORT WAR
Title: Europe 2007
Format: CDR
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"This CDR was assembled for the Summer 2007 Religious Knives / Airport War European Tour, and we are selling some of the remainders direct. Religious Knives present two previously unreleased songs, "Everything Happens Twice," and "Growth," both of which were featured live on tour. "Everything..." is a guitar heavy repetitive neckbreaker, while "Growth" is about as slow as weve managed to get on record. Airport War presents a suite of harsh turntable noise to balance out this intense package. Edition of 200, with thermal printed CDR, and 3 color screened cover with photocopied reverse" - Heavy Tapes.

Artist: ROMERO, DAMION
Title: Birth Twin
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Damion Romero is a Los Angeles based practitioner of power acoustics and intense low-level sound manipulation. He has recorded as Speculum Fight, and collaborated with MSBR, Astro, Spencer Yeh, and many more. He is a consistent source of fascinating buzz and drone and somehow manages to translate inherently physical and spatial sound amazingly onto analog and digitally recorded media. Birth Twin is a deeply focused and dense piece of sound that tests the limitations of concentration and movement." - Heavy Tapes. Edition of 150.

Artist: SEVEN DEPRESSIONS
Title: Pillar To Post/Mauled By A Deer

Artist: SHIFLET, MIKE
Title: Elaborate Palms
Format: Double Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Three intense sides of extended studies in synthesis and live performance. Shiflet is the kind of artist who can seemingly "turn it on" any time he wants, revealing the racket and buzz in his head and allowing us all to peak in.  Side four is a Workbench "Stasis Style" remix of the Elaborate Palms material." - Heavy Tapes.

Title:
Format: Double Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Vodka Soap and Acid Eagle are Spencer and James from The Skaters, who are somehow managing to ensure that the most apocalyptic Mayan prophecies will come true AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.  Violins, vocals, and the fogged air in the heart of San Francisco are translated and meditated upon. A rare glimpse into the legitimate new future and true musical language being developed in our midst.  One-Sided LP soon on Heavy Tapes, and expect many more collaborations.   Double Leopards / Skaters east coast tour is entirely confirmed and will be posted very shortly." - Heavy Tapes.

Artist: WHITE ROCK
Title: Warm Cans
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"Warm Cans" is a reissue of the "White Rock CDR" that nobody has because we never released it, except for some friends who got some defective copies.  White Rock is Maya, Mike, Nate, and Brian in the Tar Pit, mostly at night, when we could get time off from our other more full time "gigs."  The full length "Tar Pit" has just dropped on Troubleman, but check this tape for the "hot parts" Im always talking about. "Warm Cans" is true White Rock." - Heavy Tapes.

Artist: WITHDRAWL METHOD
Title: Live Letting
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"We first met Drew from Withdrawal Method / Since 1972 at the first No Fun festival -- he was selling tapes and hanging with the Nyoukis/Brighton crew, and his tapes were killer. After finding about his music project Withdrawal Method by a few bootleg live shows and officially released cassettes, we asked Drew for a master, and he gave us two live performances -- an optimal way to enjoy his sounds. Rough, live, purely electronic, these two pieces defy description -- just bury your head in the sand and trust us on this one." - Heavy Tapes

Artist: WORKBENCH & BLACK QUARTER/CORNUCOPIA
Title: Live in San Juan
Format: Cass
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"The trip from the Western part of the Island to San Juan is smooth and dramatic -- the trees melt away and a metropolitan bulb protrudes. Right in the shadow of the bulb is Santurce, where the Cubo space is a jagged realm of concrete and hyper productive thought and action. Workbench and Black Quarter were lucky enough to be invited to play in the San Juan Noise Fest and this is a partial document of the evening -- our live set on one side, and Puerto Rican noise mainstay Cornucopia on the other. A small slice of a magical evening in Puerto Rico." - Heavy Tapes.
