Sir Tad: Sir Tad Goes Deeper & Deeper EP

This brief cassette EP mixes therapeutic samples (instructional tapes, calming bird chirps) with ultra-cheap-fi keyboard sounds, creating a tiny sound-world that’s chipper and pleasant but also feels like it’s crumbling apart and pushing to maintain composure without making it seem like it’s struggling. It would sparkle if it was a cleanly recorded studio effort, but its degraded sound quality sort of redistributes its amount of luster. Plus there’s dubby effects and unexpected sounds like the screeching car tires during “Tie Cord to Racing Car” which add an extra dimension of surrealness. It’s just a small taste, but it’s like a batch of tiny homemade candies with just a few drops of lysergic chemicals inside.
