Available now on a red c24 cassette. Edition of 33.
“Vejgaard Ambient is a glowing project from Denmark-based, Karsten Høegh. Mixing warm washes of synth tones, with cold steady drum patterns, Vejgaard Ambient creates a gloomy yet groovy soundscape that provides a nice environment for exploration. Walk around, stop for a minute, take a breath, see the storm in the distance, embrace it and keep walking. Occasionally slipping into some Dub-worthy territory, and seemingly creating tones from an unknown mirage of synth banks, Vejgaard Ambient crafts a familiar yet unusual blend of ambient & rhythm. At times reminiscent of early-Peaking Lights or a more somber “Another Green World,” this tape will leave you feeling refreshed with curiosity.”

This release stems from a live pretty all right ‘showcase’ in late 2012. Two tall dudes from the midwest both operating on Akai MPCs & Juno 106s recorded straight to cassette tape at DIY space Lake Paradise (home to pretty all right, TEEN RIVER, & lake paradise records,), this raw document of electronic dance music will not win an award for its fidelity, but CAN you get down to the dirty handclaps & blown out kick drums?! duh~ Chicago Jim throws down a mixture of pillow-y synths, with nods to kraftwerk, giorgio, & Chicago house’s off-the-cuff drum machine programming. On the flip side, Detroit’s Dakota Bones brings a lounge vibe mixed with cinematic string patches, soulful vocal snippets, occasional sped up funk horns & basslines, & the firm yet pleasant punch of the 4 on the 4loor kick drum. Bones seamlessly glues together several flavors of sexy for this dance set, which differs greatly from his debut tape for pretty all right last year.
Available now on cassette.

You may feel like you got trapped in a 56K modem after listening to all the bleeps and boops on this new space ripper from Brooklyn zen shredders, Earthmasters & Katrina Stonehart. Recorded at Total Reality Intl. HQ, this 32 minute tape captures a wacky sci-fi drone journey, with meditative moments & sparse field recording manipulations. This tape is both deep & whimsical all at once.

PAR will be dropping a few releases this fall. The two being released in October signify Pretty All Right’s first steps out of the ole’ midwest, first with Arizona’s Christian Filardo, and followed by a tape with Germany’s Ghostandthesong!
Christian Filardo : Forgetting c40 Purple Cassette Tape
a glowing collection of ambient, drone, noise vignettes; nicely composed & with an appropriate amount of twists and turns to peak interest.
Potions / Ghostandthesong Split Tape
Germany’s Ghostandthesong has been crafting off-kilter experimental pop with crispy production for a bit in the underground. On this release, he stretches out of the pop genre for the most part, exploring tape manipulation, drone, experimental and free jazz. It is a far out listening experience and contrasts nicely with POTIONS more low key, drone and groove experience.
