KANDAHAR HOMEDUBS 012
kandahar homedubs' final chapter is a beautiful collection of stripped-down tracks from boston experimental musician and diy hero petridisch. the tape's a side is made up of of "piano versions" of older works by the artist--rapt with petridisch's haunting compositional trademarks that toe the line between medieval chant and 20th-century atonal. accompanying petridisch's piano work are programmed vocal lines from the vocaloid voice synthesizer, adding another layer to the strange sonic palette. side b is more traditional petridisch: an excerpt from an at-home performance. hand-engraved carolina blue c38 wrapped in a pink anti-static bag with a paper insert, enclosed in a hand-engraved junction box. limited to 15.
Boy Band - "Death" c18
KANDAHAR HOMEDUBS 011
a beautiful mini-album by asheville bedroom pop artist boy band, now on tape for the first time. with songs ranging from heartfelt love notes to depressive self-doubt, boy band masterfully blends 808s, casio keyboards, whispering vocals, and a soundscape of guitars and synths in a way that's much like a phil spector or kevin shields production (if they recorded in an apartment instead of a studio). an album short enough to encourage repeat listens, but long enough to get its message of death, life, love, and fear across. clear c18 housed in a lavender coffin (designed by matteson haglund) with an "old-school" style paper insert and fake flowers. personalized by boy band! limited to 15.
