Ocean Charter of Values & Lung Cycles: split tape

Ocean Charter of Values & Lung Cycles: split tape

The OCOV side is some very drifty ambient folk, with distant pounding drums, still summer night air drone, and some lost-in-the-prairie vocals. The second side by Lung Cycles (the artist formerly known as Squanto) stood out to my ears more. Hissy drones played on cheap keyboards in public places during hot, humid days. Sometimes there’s some tape manipulations, adding some scrambled, alien-pitchshifted chattering voices in the mix, and sometimes there’s dogs barking or other incidental sounds. Very cheap fidelity, very hissy and flat-sounding, but it sounds like it was too hot and stuffy to worry about trivial things like that. The last track covers a very soothing keyboard drone with rain sounds and subtle tape manipulations. A really unique perspective on lo-fi tape drone. Free download on Bandcamp.
