about

A love song to tape in the wake of great failing plans.
Limited Edition Cassette was available from Patient Sounds and might soon be repressed.

credits

released January 7, 2016

Recorded, performed and mixed by IWC entirely on a customised Fostex X-15 as it slowly died because of having customised it. All sounds created using analogue tape, manipulated and circuit-bent tape recorders, a swag spring reverb, the Craig piano, sandpaper, the Reminsky Fatso and IWC's voice. No digital anythings were employed in the creation of this recording because who knows how any of that stuff works anyways. Special thanks to Mum and Dad at whose unknowing house in Edmonton a bunch of this was recorded. Have a good time all the time.
