Eggy Distro is now a physical reality at the Half and Half on SW Oak. I'll be curating a small and rotating selection of tapes from labels across the country, which I'm really excited about because outside of tracking this stuff down on the internet and forking a lot of money over to paypal and the postal service it pretty much doesn't exist. It's also tough to know what's even out there. The amount of amazing music being put to cassette tape right now is really exciting and I'm happy to be able to help get it in the hands of people who might not otherwise know it existed.
These are the tapes at the Half and Half right now:
DIM HOLYS - IS THERE HEAT RISING IN YOUR NECK - OSM-B 011
Brian Mumford's bliss-drones for sleeping. Brian has an amazing talent for turning harsh digital noise and homemade synthesizer howl into music that hits on a very emotional and intuitive level, which is what makes both Dragging an Ox and Dim Holys such remarkable projects. Really beautiful art by Dana Dart McLean. $5
DRIPHOUSE - SEWER MIST - GEL 03
Synthesizer fever-dreams from former Raccoo-oo-oon member Daren Ho. Very mellow krautrock vibe, like the soundtrack to a lost Herzog movie. Drifting arpeggios and hypnotic repetitions, sometimes beautiful and calming, other times ominous and unsettled. Excellent stuff, with art that looks like it was taken from a video game about Weimar Germany. $6
