Dialtone / YU//F: split tape

My tape deck is producing a hum again, and sometimes it swells up into a screech. I got it fixed once before, but the noise is back. It’s not always so bad though, especially if I turn the music up really loud. And for a tape like this, it kind of enhances it. Dialtone’s side is a blizzard of harsh psychedelic noise with occasionally glitches and combusts, and at one point morphs into a quite relaxing jazz sample. It definitely feels like it’s breaking through chaos into some sort of peaceful, transcendent state. YU//F’s side is a bit louder, more junkyard-y, and a bit more harsh/piercing, yet there’s also some windchimes twinkling through the bulldozering. Eventually it sort of clears out and forms into some sort of blurry, sooty drone, and the layers of darkness and heaviness are slowly removed.
