    That's right, this cassette has a side A AND a Side B! What?

    That's some crazy shit right there. Anyway, it also comes in a bag that Charlie made out of an old set of pyjamas. He sucks at sewing, but it's the thought that counts.

about

Ugh, do I really need to write this? I'm hungover.

So when Smiling Strange suggested that he was looking for someone to make a split tape with, we instantly thought of Nevhar Anhar. Both of these artists have put out stuff with us before and they've both been forging their own, weird, lo-fi, rambling paths with a shared love of improvisation, sound collage and tape hiss. I was super-excited to see what they'd both contribute and how they'd work together on a tape.

Anyone familiar with Smiling Strange knows what to expect from their approach - some sort of weird, meandering Daniel-Johnston-Jamming-With-Neil-Young style guitar rock; unexpected jump-cuts and random snippets of conversation all pasted together into a twenty-five minute long vignette. It's almost voyeuristic in it's intimacy and somehow both abrasive and comforting.

Nevhar Anhar continues to make bizarre left-turns with his music, following up a collection of acoustic avant-folk numbers and a series of field recordings with, first, a post-jazzy delay-pedal and saxophone jam that meanders lackadaisically towards no particular conclusion and, second, with what appears to be a classical radio station run through some stomp-boxes, interspersed with occasional guitar twiddlings and an old, busted drum machine. Like, I honestly am not sure how he put this thing together but I love it.

We love split tapes and so should you
