This is the first installment of what I hope will be a semi regular series of brief reviews of cassette tapes that come our way.
Nu New Age
Former Raccoo-oo-oon guitarist & current Brooklyn resident Darren Ho dropped another dose of Driphouse earlier this year via the always delightful Nu New Age. If ornate holographic bursts of color are your thing (there mine!) then track this one down. Sounds like Darren has really found his rabbit hole and he seems to be having a good time in it. When’s the last time you heard someone open up a side with a harpsichord?
Pretty much been blasting these two No UFO sides ad nauseum down in RSHQ lately. All compliments of Vancouver, BC head Konrad Jandavs. Loving the Faust Tapes template in use here: analog tomfoolery one minute, guitar dirt the next, then booty bass after that. Probably why I’m not getting tired of this one. Completely lost feeling… and I mean that in the best way.
