The "everything we have in stock" bundle
Cassette + Digital Album
A lovely bundle containing one of everything we have in stock. This is also the only way that you can get our out of print Arm Candy cassette. It contains one copy of each of the following (all with download codes):
Slushy Guts is the stage name of the prolific outsider songcrafter Steve Keane. The former drummer for Dignan Porch (Captured Tracks, Faux Discx) has spent ten years deconstructing and reconstructing, sampling and resampling. 2018 finds him stumbling into the Tye Die Tapes fold with "Qualms (+3 songs)".
Qualms (+3 songs) gathers together the fragmented, sample based Qualms with the melodic synthesiser meanderings of (+3 songs).
Amongst Qualms' clusters of broken down samples and stream of consciousness, melody is implied but never stated outright. The drumming is frenetic, the rants are rambling and the tales of catsitting are nightmarish. Hear Steve observe, commentate and document as (in his own words) a "Toasty as fuck, cardi-clad tough man berates middle class geeks on two-wheeled scooter things in the street"
(+3 songs) sees Steve meditating on repetitive low fidelity synthesiser lines, slowly contorting and layering them to dissonance. It's lofi hip-hop without the beat, or the rapping; the death knell of a well used and well loved tape machine.
Qualms was originally released in 2017 and occasionally features Luke Walsh (also formerly of Dignan Porch). The initial cassette run is limited to 30 copies and is the first of many releases to come from Tye Die Tapes in 2018.
