Personal Archives


PERSONAL ARCHIVES sent me a few neat tapes. i listened to all of them and wrote about the two i enjoyed the most:


BBJr - A CONCISE COMMUNIST MANIFSTO
...a short collection of varying outsider-esque improvisational pieces that range from electronic noise to tonal looped ambience. my favorite piece is composed of gently strummed acoustic guitar, embelished nicely by psyched out electronic sounds. the cover art features what looks to be like dirt ridden, neglected toys or children's props thus complimenting the dark yet playful nature of the music itself.  



IDIOT HEATHENS - WITCH DOG JAM (SIDE A) // LAP BABIES - ULTRABRITE BLUES (SIDE B)
witch dog jam starts as a suprisingly pleasent, quasi demented, lofi pyschobilly jam before breaking down into a bizarre drone accordion in hell segment. bursts of wonderful beefheart-esque howls come in and out as well as a brilliantly badly played harmonica as the song withers and dies. VERY cool stuff for sure. side B wasn't as strange but I enjoyed its 18 minutes of sad stoner dying guitar paired with thedrunk "i don't give a shit" drumming.
