This album sounds fantastic. What an inspiration for a fellow analog enthusiast. I am planning to do a funk record on a cassette 8 track pretty soon and I hope it sounds half as cool as this.

Overall, the songs are great, and the arrangements are there for the song... Over half the battle was won right there.

You could have recorded this to carrier pigeon, and it still would have been fantastic... many kudos.

Mike, I've never heard of you before but it took all of 20 seconds for me to decide to buy the vinyl. Really great work here. Sound, writing, performances, all fantastic and it hangs together so beautifully.

I rarely, RARELY buy records with so little knowledge or reference, but I could instantly feel that this one is gonna stick with me.

I'm also thinking about doing my own EP on vinyl with Gotta Groove. They seem like a really cool company; look forward to hearing how the pressing sounds(/feels/looks).

I have to say...this is overwhelmingly the best response I've ever seen on a "Listen to My Stuff" thread. Usually it's crickets or one off handing remark. this should tell you that you've made something great. Nice.

Packy, you'll have your vinyl soon, thanks so much! Gotta Groove is a breeze to work with and I recommend them.

Glad to hear it - I've been in touch with GGR over the last couple days and they've already been super responsive and cool. Plus, having their own crowdfunding platform and syncing it up to their fulfillment/distribution service is a brilliant idea that I plan to exploit to the fullest. Cheers!

Overall, the biggest response to the album has been on the TOMB. Much appreciated!

very nice recording.. nice music too
cassettes can truly sound better than most people think
sounds way better than most music you hear on various message boards where everything sounds the same and is extremly .."fake" sounding with too much treble
it just feels good and musical

peace

thanks for listening, i'll always keep around a few 424s, etc., cassettes just work for me given my "studio" (basement) setup. cheers

Sounds great...not something I'd buy but the recordings are good. I just picked up a 688.. What cassettes are you using?
