cloudsound - asperatus c38
TQ68: Edition of 100 (LAST COPIES)



Though he only began releasing music as cloudsound in 2014, Swedish resident and American expat Lee Boyd has been recording beautiful ambient guitar compositions directly to tape for years now. We're excited to share his latest collection, asperatus, and it's another stellar example of Boyd's singular sound. cloudsound has all the lushness you could ever want from this kind of music, but Boyd's loose, improvisational style feels distinctly homegrown – like a kind of cosmic blues brewed on Earth and then beamed out for the rest of the universe to enjoy. There's just something so intoxicating about the combination of Boyd's washed out guitar tones with the warmth of analog sound. Drink it up and drift away. Pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle. Comes with a free digital download.







Cenote Glow - Musa Paradisiaca c60
TQ67: Edition of 100



The first release from Cenote Glow in about a year, Musa Paradisiaca blends synthesis and field recordings for a deep tropical journey. With sounds both captured in Mexico and recorded in Brooklyn, the release evokes the enriching warmth of the Yucat√°n Peninsula at times and the darker heart of the natural world at others. Sonically, found sounds are featured more in the foreground than previous Cenote Glow excursions, as musical passages flow between melodic effervescence, oceanic drones, and hypnotic whirlpools of abstract sound. Come ashore for an hour of memories and interpretations inspired by the uniquely beautiful land known as Quintana Roo. Pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle. Comes with a free digital download.







Bluesharp - Sinkhole Flora c30
TQ66: Edition of 100 (LAST COPIES)



Proprietor of Royallen, member of Perspectives, and regular on labels like Housecraft, Rotifer, and his own Permanent Nostalgia, Joshua Tippery uses the guise Bluesharp for his solo guitar explorations. In the world of Bluesharp, though, the six string is used more for texture and noise than melody. Sinkhole Flora finds Tippery grinding his axe in unorthodox ways to invoke the crunch of the Earth and the murk of the swamps prominent throughout his home state of Florida. It's spare, strange, and challenging at times, yet there's something altogether soothing about this one as it takes you deep down through the sediment and then plunges you right into the marshy waters. Pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle. Comes with a free digital download.







Tuluum Shimmering - Dark Star c100
TQ65: Edition of 100 (LAST COPY)



With the ability to juggle a bevy of instruments on the fly and combine worldly influences with modern psychedelia, England's Jake Webster has built a strong reputation for himself across many incredible releases as Tuluum Shimmering. Dark Star adds to that very impressive catalog and further showcases Webster's knack for long, sprawling improvisations. Explicitly influenced by The Grateful Dead and employing guitar, hand percussion, and flutes, the piece starts gently and gradually builds upon itself, allowing newly introduced elements to dance playfully over each looped passage. Stretching across two long sides and ending abruptly when the tape runs out, one could almost imagine Webster jamming this one into blissful infinity. Pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle. Comes with a free digital download.

Imperial Topaz - Full of Grace LP
TQ56: Edition of 300



It's a thrill to present the full-length debut from Brooklyn's Imperial Topaz. Following a cassette EP and a split with Motion Sickness of Time Travel, Full of Grace finds the duo of Caroline Teagle and Zachary Zierden venturing into icy new territory on their most accomplished release to date. What's so striking about the album is its ability to convey a sense of mood in a way that resonates deeper with each listen. Combining lush synth melodies and sequences with downbeat drum machines and Teagle's gentle, nuanced vocal delivery, the album carries a profound sense of sadness and loss. Still, hope and shining rays of crystalline beauty constantly shimmer beneath the surface. Each song is tautly composed, yet there's a remarkable sense of space throughout that allows each verse, chorus, and instrumental element to sink in and echo deep within your psyche. Jump into the reflecting pool and let its cool waters wash over you. Mixed and mastered for vinyl by Jay Heiselmann at Death By Audio, featuring full color artwork by Caroline Teagle. Comes with free digital download.
