O MEIN GAWD! PRE-ORDERS!

For the first time ever, Metaphysical Circuits is taking pre-orders for the next three tapes (they'll be released officially on or around October 27.) Short form sweetness from Marehelm and Lero, plus a hitherto unannounced Fugleøen double cassette, of which only 10 (well, 9) are available. 

Another first: two of the three feature cover art not done by me (not counting fonts/layouts), while Fugleøen features – gasp – photos. The next three or four will also be packaged in other peoples' visuals, to an extent; we'll see what happens thereafter.

BLANK TAPES FOR SALE, TOO
As I need to gather funds together for upcoming tapes, I'm also selling leftover/unused blank cassettes...

CURRENT AVAILABILITY STATUS / AUDIO ISSUES

Due to the barely three-year-old tape recorder here at MC HQ already no longer yielding acceptable sounding results (annoying pitch irregularities), I've had to make the label's last two home dubbed titles (TAKAHIRO MUKAI and V5N 2G8 / k..k. / Micromelancolié) unavailable.

Unfortunately, it could take a while before I'm able to make more tapes, needing to find – let alone afford – a new, working cassette deck. The next five releases* will be pro dubbed, so there should be no audio issues there. (Finances are a separate issue; new tapes will be fewer and further between, for the foreseeable future.)
 

QUICK-FIX ALTERNATIVES / TWO-WAY D.I.Y.?!
If you absolutely want one or both of TAKAHIRO MUKAI and/or V5N 2G8 / k..k. / Micromelancolié on tape now, I can:

• Send you a blank tape w/ artwork + a link to FLAC or WAV files, from which you can record onto the tape yourself
• Send you a blank tape w/ artwork + an audio CD-R with the tracks, from which you can record onto the tape yourself (the V5N 2G8 / k..k. / Micromelancolié split requires two CD-Rs)

Let me know, in this case. We can arrange a very low price here, or discounts on future orders, as an apology for your inconvenience.

If you recently got a tape from me, and the sound is as described above (unintended pitch weirdness, wobble, oscillation) and want lossless files/discs to record over the tapes, again, let me know.


(RE)CHARGING FORWARD
*Among our aforementioned upcoming pro dubbed releases will be new milestones from Marehelm, Lero, Tresilaze, Jack McConnell, and International Debris... somewhat in this order, over the next 3-4 months.

SEPTEMBER TRIUMVIRATE

Three new ones (as mentioned last month) are now available: Ragged Lines, The Child of a Creek, and V5N 2G8 / k..k. / Micromelancolié. Minimalist layouts, white cassettes, all in very limited editions. 
  
***Read more / purchase tapes here! (Most of our other titles are gradually disappearing too — most are down to one single remaining copy — so get in there, if you want.)***

By the way, the above are not the label's last physical releases of 2014 after all. Up next (no timeline just yet), a Tresilaze C70 and a Lero C32... plus a couple other things, to be confirmed.

4OUR FOR 4UGUST

Several occasional mornings and/or evenings have been spent by the computer, tape deck, and cutting table, the past balmy forever. All to bring you four new tape releases, which excite us! Similar layouts/different fonts – not a look/concept I'll be pursuing further, though. A new catalogue number scheme, too (say hello to MCMC41, ...42, ...43 & ...44.)

Pleased, thus, to introduce or re-introduce Strange Mountain, Ondness, Gedane Zaken / Lero, and TAKAHIRO MUKAI to you (et cetera) Read more / purchase tapes...



A C86 split between V5N 2G8, k..k., and Micromelancolié, as well as a new The Child of a Creek album are what September will spawn. Maybe a Ragged Lines (or other solo project) tape too. Otherwise, not sure if there'll be room for any more physical audio releases (pretty open-ended, otherwise, eh!?) until early 2015?!

NO HOLIDAZE IN SIGHT (UPDATED)

As June becomes July, a quartet of new cassettes: MICROFL▼RSCNCE "IV", Treasure Hunt "Pu'er Moods", Claus Poulsen "Yellow Machine", and uBiK "Frostbitten" Read more / purchase...


Next up: (mid/late July?) Ondness, Strange Mountain, Ragged Lines. The previously mentioned Fallen The Child of a Creek tape is slated for September, as are a few other yet-to-be finalized K7s.

EMBEDDED CLOUDS

Just uploaded/created different playlists at Soundcloud and our long-neglected Mixcloud. The latter includes tracks from a few forthcoming releases. Hours of fun below:
