FCR-79 Devin Dart / Bob Bucko Jr split recycled C60

Big ol’ split of some jammers from the jungle that is eastern Iowa. Devin Dart starts out with a soothing post-rock dish before venturing into weird-out psych-folk-looped-to-infinity climes, with an 8-minute noise dirge thrown in the middle for sick kicks. Bob Bucko Jr turns his head all the way around for some schizoid jazz and wandering guitar arias for the broken-necked. A tape for meditating towards negative infinity to. Edition of 20, March 2012

FCR-76 Make Believe Bombs / Color Rabbit split C62

MBB / CRSome nightglow adventures await you on this near-hour-long ancient-astronaut art exhibit at your local tape deck or portable walkman. Make Believe Bombs spits out a single half-hour track to cover the first side, ranging from black-hole glittering rock sequences to brain melodies that float, to ambiance with loops in the emptiest space in the middle of all eternity. Ends hopeful and quiet / loud. Then, Color Rabbit comes in brimming with forever-optimism, more pop-oriented than usual maybe but still way into fun and improvisation, bringing a wide-eyed starry density overflowing with just . . . NICE ONE-ness. 8 solid tracks that alternately rock, build and grow from simple flute loop seeds, ice skate on the surface of your consciousness, and finally get you high and gently drop you back down to the ground. Wonderfull cup. The tapes themselves are painted in glow-in-the-dark paint and have full-color jcards and inserts, and, coupled with the larger volume than usual, explain the somewhat higher than usual prices I have listed. BUT IT’LL BE WORTH IT, this is a sweet and dank slab with some really varied styles. Hope you enjoy. Edition of 50, June 2011

FCR-68 Yana / Make Believe Bombs split C21 / recycled tape

Sept 1st —-> Startin’ with (probably. Most likely.) the most appropriate lost and found sound intro ever on JSchleidt’s Yanaside and goin’ til the sun fades away in gloryshine at the end of DDart’s MBBside, this tape has beats for your brain’s impending senility and some slick spacious pretty sounds to make that seem pretty okay. Each dood brought a ten and a half minute jam to the table. This one got tagged EasternIowaSplitSeries cuz both parties occupied Iowa City at the time of the recordin’, October 2009 sometime. I’m very glad these sounds finally burst through. Edition of 21, Sept 2010
