2022 Exchange

2020 * 2021 * 2022Music Exchange Guidelines 

Our 2022 Exchange is coming soon. Here’s the tentative playlist:

01: January: Cornelius F. Van Stafrin III

(discogs.com/artist/1856749-Cornelius-F-Van-Stafrin-III)

02: February: Lob Instagon

A mainstay of experimental music and art for a number of years, LOB has recorded and released an incredible body of work, and we are lucky to have him in our group. This is a limited edition CD (that members of our group ALSO get to enjoy), and contains some incredible work, as you would expect from the rest of their output. Always a pleasure to get a new Instagon album in the mail.

03: March: Max Julian Eastman

(tribetapes.bandcamp.com)

This unusual piece for our exchange group comes from Tribe Tapes guru Max Eastman, who has been experimenting with 5″ lathe cut records for a while now. For this release, inside a plastic bag in an original photograph and a record, where you need to cut out the center hole in order to listen to it. (I used a penknife, and the record plays very well, now.)

Probably one of the most unique items to have arrived in our exchange group, these loops and grooves are “playable at any speed,” giving the listener a few options for playback and enjoyment. This is an excellent item in general, and a perfect item for our group.

04: April: Le Petit Sac

(petitsac.bandcamp.com)

This Easter-themed release from Le Petit Sac has everything you’ve come to expect from their output, including squealing electronics, wormy vocals, and they combine in the perfect blend of lo-fi weirdness and modern-age performance. Always a pleasure to enjoy new releases from the Sac, and this one is something special. Make sure to put this one on next year, around Easter, to let the neighbors know how you feel.
