New Physical Objects from Angel Marcloid

Two new physical releases from Angel Marcloid (aka MindSpring Memories, Fire-Toolz, Angelwings Marmalade and other such aliases.)

 

ANGELWINGS MARMALADE – RECTANGULAR PRISM OF SHITTY EYES

Rectangular Prism of Shitty Eyes Vol. 7 is one of the most abrasive noise recordings from Angel Marcloid. The sounds contained within very much evoke the imagery of the album title. This cassette is the first-ever physical release of this oddity of an album from one of vaporwave’s most prolific artists. This cassette version contains an exclusive bonus track.

MINDSPRING MEMORIES – ॐ

Angel’s slushwave masterpiece from 2015 is brought to physical life once again in the form of a glass-mastered compact disc– a format that Angel has argued could really be the most vaporwave format. This album has been brought to life many times before on vinyl, cassette, MiniDisc and even 8-track. And now, a CD. Comes in a digipak case. This is not a CD-R.

MINDSPRING MEMORIES 8-TRACKS UPDATE

Those who ordered the initial run of 8-tracks for Polygondwanaland and Spirit Phone have now received their copies. The next 8-track in line was MindSpring Memories. Dead Media Tapes is finishing these up today, and they’re expected to ship to us this week. Thank you for your patience and we’re extremely sorry for how long the 8-tracks have taken.

If you want a MindSpring Memories 8-track, we opened up on-demand orders for these while Dead Media continues to produce all 7 albums we released.


The records for The Dewey Decibel System by MC Lars & Mega Ran are in, and they look gorgeous! The way the records actually came out are shown above.
WEBSITE STOCK IS EXTREMELY LOW! Get it now if you want it!

Nature Tapes, Commodore Touchdown, 8-Tracks Shipping Update!

Apologies for the long production delays on Nature Tapes and Commodore Touchdown. But now they are safely in our hands, and will now be on their way to you all. Thank you for your support and your patience.

On the flip side, the Spirit Phone repress was finished way ahead of schedule, and that’s in our hands now too!

Pictured above:

SPIRIT PHONE 8-TRACKS UPDATE

They’re finished, ya’ll. Dead Media Tapes is really coming through. 54 copies of Spirit Phone on 8-track are completed, and are on the way to us now.

2 albums down, 5 more to go. But Spirit Phone was the bulk of the project. The rest of the 8-tracks should go a lot faster now.

We can’t wait to get these into your hands after all this time of waiting.

The next 8-track in line for Dead Media to finish is MindSpring Memories’ .

If you didn’t order one of these 8-tracks back in April, and still want one, you can order a copy to be completed in Dead Media Tapes’ next wave of 8-tracks they’ll be shipping to us. Available again are Spirit Phone, Polygondwanaland, MindSpring Memories, Goodbye My 4-Track, and more.

Follow Dead Media Tapes on Facebook for consistent updates on our 8-tracks project.

MC Lars & Mega Ran – The Dewey Decibel System Vinyl/Tape Pre-Order

Needlejuice ventures into nerdcore hip-hop for the first time with the MC Lars and Mega Ran collaboration, The Dewey Decibel System.

MC Lars is the creator of post-punk laptop rap and lit-hop, which he has extended and powered into a fusion of rap, punk, rock, ska, pop and other genres. He does so with energy and wit, joined with a strong sense of humor and perspective.

A former middle school teacher, Mega Ran blends education, hip-hop and gaming in amazing new ways, penetrating the farthest reaches of the galaxy with his unique rhyme style and electric performances.

The Dewey Decibel System is an album entirely based on some of MC Lars and Mega Ran’s favorite poems, books short stories and graphic novels. Following in the footsteps of classic MC Lars tracks like “Mr Raven,” combined with Mega Ran’s blend of education and hip-hop, the album is some of the best work from the two nerdcore artists to date.

The album contains songs about Shelley’s Ozymandias, Moore’s Watchmen, Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, Poe’s Masque of the Red Death, as well as guest appearances by MC Frontalot, Schaffer the Darklord, Tribe One, Storyville, Miss Eaves and more!

Flummox – Intellectual Hooliganism has landed! + Nature Tapes Update

The Flummox “Intellectual Hooliganism” records have arrived and are now shipping!

The progressive metal group from Nashville Flummox have crafted the album Intellectual Hooliganism, a relentless barrage of heavy psychedelic riffs with surreal detours into methlab hoedowns and opossum biology. The album’s 13 cuts owe as much to the likes of Mr. Bungle and Frank Zappa as it does to today’s hellish political climate and the dysphoria & daily struggles of the band members’ lives.

Now available HERE on cassette and purple-with-rainbow-splatter LP, Intellectual Hooliganism’s physical release captures Flummox’s technicolor chaos.

The album can be streamed on Bandcamp and Soundcloud. Both physical editions of the album will come with a digital download featuring a bonus album commentary. Flummox will celebrate the album’s release with a free concert on September 21st at Little Harpeth Brewing in Nashville.

UPDATE: Nature Tapes CDs are expected to begin shipping in about a week. We have word that the manufacturers are finishing them up now.

Cassettes have a slight delay, and will ship to us in the first week of October. That means they’ll begin shipping to customers roughly the 2nd week in October. The same goes for the cassettes of Intellectual Hooliganism, Commodore Touchdown, and Snacktacular. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The vinyl records were delayed by a few weeks due to sibilance issues with the test pressing. They are set to ship from the pressing plant to us on October 12. Rather than press records with noticeable sibilance (depending on your turntable), we decided to correct the issue at the expense of delaying the manufacturing process a bit. We felt that in the long run, this was the right decision and that the sound quality of the records will be better off for it.

Our vinyl manufacturers have a public tracker where you can check the status of the records, and this is what comes up when you search Nature Tapes’ catalog number. As you can see, the plates are ready to be pressed, and it’s just a matter of the records getting through the production queue at GZ Media. The jackets have already been printed.

8-Tracks Update #3

It’s time to officially announce that we’ve switched manufacturing facilities in regard to the 8-tracks. While we believe the original manufacturer had good intentions, it became clear that the 8-tracks weren’t coming together as easily as we hoped. We felt that switching manufacturers was the right decision to make for our customers.

We’re really sorry about the way this project has gone. To everybody who bought the 8-tracks back in April, we’re feeling just as exasperated as you. We want these things to be in your hands just as much as you do.

The 8-track project was meant to be a fun “April Fools” gag that was supposed to put a smile on the faces of our customers as they opened a box to find that these 8-tracks actually did, in fact, become a reality. As the project ended up dragging on, we can understand why that happiness would have turned to confusion and mistrust.

We have good news, however. The 8-tracks will exist, and to ensure that each and every one of you rightfully gets the product that you paid for 5 months ago, we’ve given this project to a different manufacturer called Dead Media Tapes. Dead Media Tapes are a reputable company that has done hundreds of new 8-track releases, even going as far as doing thousands of copies of the official 8-track releases of the popular metal band Ghost. These people have a love of the craft of making 8-tracks, they work around the clock, and they know exactly what they’re doing. Follow their Facebook page to see them post updates about the 8-tracks as they’re being worked on.

We know there’s a lot of internet record labels out there that get a lot of flack for not delivering products on time. We strive to hit our shipment time frame goal with every release we do, and we unfortunately made a dreadful miscalculation on these. We apologize to our 8-track buyers, and we hope to earn your trust back.

Lemon Demon – Spirit Phone – New Vinyl Variants

We weren’t going to let this record stay out of print for too long! Neil Cicierega’s occult classic Spirit Phone is coming back in 2 new color variants: “Burning Eyes” (red and black color-in-color) and “Reaganomics Neon” (neon purple & pink) editions.

As with the first pressing, it includes 5 bonus tracks and the download card with access to Neil’s album commentary.

Bringing to mind the playfully ghoulish work of new wave acts like Oingo Boingo, this album presents its dark themes with mischievous relish. Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop included it in his Best of 2016 list with an 8/10 rating, praising its clever lyrics, high energy, and catchy songwriting.

This PRE-ORDER of the new color variants is expected to ship in December. CDs and cassettes are available as well.

8-Tracks Update #2

Yes, it’s been a long time. We know these are totally overdue… thank you all for your patience, as getting these made has been a lot more of a wild ride than we had anticipated.

But we think they’re turning out pretty amazing. When you have them in your hands, we hope you’ll find this crazy project we decided to embark on to have been worth the wait.

Pics from the manufacturer– these are the only two albums we had yet to unveil pictures of: Goodbye My 4-Track and The People’s Choice Music.

We’re near the finish line. We’re as eager to get our hands on these as you are.
