Crushed velvet rope ladder records #3 & 4

started a new label recently
a deeper level of obscurity and occlusion
the first public releases

cvrl #3: Lolly Gesserit "Slow down and fall out" cassette
second release under new solo guise. 4 track recordings made in samantha glass & loudon nute's kitchen during visit to wisconsin last summer. splicing dub rhythms, screwed down vocals, hammond organ and tape manipulation to create a warm grim meditative blur. conceived under the influence of the 2nd floor of the madison public library and the southeastern shore of lake mendota. edition of 40 high bias solid black c22s in clear cases with full color covers and labels


cvrl #4: T.J. Drinkwater & Feline Throne "Whippit squat co-op" split cassette
live document of two short-lived ensembles fronted by leopard print snake charmer sci-fi sam benson (tomorrow pig, black rotisserie). the first side pairs sammy's unhinged crooning with fragmented glassy synth, drum machine pulses and heavy stereo delay in iowa city. On the flip he looses exalted howling over a digital slurry of gutter tape collage, skree oscillators and grotesquely out of phase drum sequencing in zabriskie point, california. Full of subliminal in-jokes & cosmic grabass. "like it or not you all in the family now." featuring various shadowy members of pinochio, sister midnight, president centipede, mandlebrott & skyy and au revoir les beaux garcons. edition of 60 high bias solid black c22s in clear cases with full color covers and labels


cassettes are $7 postage paid in the US, $9 abroad
