THE ANNOYING FORMAT SERIES BOX SET AVRCRC 0015
Voted "Most Annoying Format" by Hem and Haw Audio Magazine, AVRCRC poots forth these 3" terrors just in time for your next attic cleaning! Each tiny piece of plastic is housed in a construction paper cover and fancy plastic slip sleeve for easy storage!
The "box" in question is a hand made paper letter of your choice!
What about the music? Good question! Runs down like this:
Apartment Music-New Wave Dyke: The early years! A loose concept album about apartments! Country-tinged psych-pop/buffoonery for the cracker box set. Written, performed and recorded exclusively in apartments!
Necklaces-Do you remember when Nico house-sat for the Human League? No? Well this EP sounds like it. Two Casios, two hands and a voice. Minimal, lo-fi synth. A proud voice emerges through the blown tones. Shimmering.
Melissa Lonely-Quarantine Dream-A concept album of Forlorn drone landscapes. John Carpenter doom tones. Swamped in reverb. Ghostly whispers mingle with unidentified rumble. Field recordings of the lost.
Dan Hole Pond-Live 2008-This is the sound of old thrift store LPs breathing, Casio heart beats, crackles, machine burp and a human making it all happen. Layer upon layer of samples manipulated on the spot by one Rob Peterson, captured and displayed here for you to experience. Meditation station.
Yarrow Vizaro-Morbific Sky-Fried electronics. NASA tossing a drum machine down the stairs. Beep frizzle from Tejas. Stoned thump and swazzle. A true delay raider day trader. Reminds me of early Mouse on Mars in parts.
$6 FOR THE "BOX SET" (5 3" CD-Rs in a paper "box" shaped like your favorite letter!)
I WANT ONE OF THESE!
