Here is a recording that I just released with Poor Little Music. It's called Space Funeral and it's lo-fi as hell! Everything was recorded with one microphone and a shitty four-track on cassette tape (mostly).
This project has been physically released as a split cassette as well, with music from the one-and-only Tim Ford (Time Fjord) on the other side.
Cassettes are $5. Contact Robbie Michalchuk if you are interested. 30 copies available.
