Not having enough bleep blops, avant garde tunes, or drone tracks in your life? City State Tapes is here to fill that cold, cold void in your soul, with the release of the majority of their volume one catalog, which dropped over the weekend in correspondence to their release party. What the label does or at least what it has so far, is to curate the best of the weirdest in town. This is your home for odd sounds and things that make you go “hmmm,” although it’s neither this nor that to which I refer. It’s a pretty diverse label too. This batch sees the release of Visage by Introvert, the glitched out nightmare of a post-human Terminator only future; Plod and Play by Shedding, a pastiche of tiny synth sounds that coalesce into a pleasing whole; Breccia by Connor Waldman, a warbly, synth heavy sheen of drone sounds; the enigmatic ÇPR, the only album as yet to be released, and vehicle for label cofounder Chris Cprek; and Stick Solos by S. Soltau, which is a musique concrete exploration of sounds made on a violin.
You can check out what they have to offer here, and I heartily recommend that you do so.
