panda beach, last days ashore

i fell in love with this tape. aesthetically this is very well put together on every level.
the poetry, playing, songs, and recording are all very well done. i listened quite a bit on headphones with my walkman, and i felt like i was dreaming. the music kind of sounds like you wake up in some strange house in some remote place, and there's this weird etherial music going on in another part of the house and you can only make out snatches of it but it's beautiful. the melodies in the voice are great and the suspended chords and things in the accompaniment are very well done. i think this is a great work. the packaging is really simple and cool. great songs. loved this.  here's the site to order
