:: Sun Cycles/Inez Lightfoot live split tape out now ::

Available now at sweet new trans-continental microlabel Dumpster Diving Lab, a new split tape of recent live recordings. Packed onto this lovely tape (with artwork by Keith Rankin) are four live pieces by Sun Cycles and Inez Lightfoot, recorded over the span of two shows in spring 2012 at Townshend's Tea in Portland, Oregon. "Splendid psychedelic sound accurately hidden inside of a cassette." Thanks, DDL!

:: Riverbottom Review ::

A nice review from Guide Me Little Tape:

"Not quite sure how a tape can sound so hazy and warm, and yet still be so clear and refreshing. Riverbottom Nightmare from Inez Lightfoot on Biological Radio continues in a line of recordings exploring what I perceive as nature, natural surroundings, and naturalistic emotion. Inez treads across mountains of melodic progression, brushed with subtle hints of varied instrumentation and an increased vocal presence. It all seems alive and breathing with a spontaneous unrehearsed quality. Sounds like waking up from a dream, standing at the edge of a lake, staring at your own reflection. "

Thank you to GMLT for their thoughtful listening!

Discriminate is sold out of this one, but you can get a digital copy
