So... got 26 releases out this year, as I've managed to slip in "Take Him to Detroit," Northville Tunnels' third tape for us – another glorious techdrone highlight from Jared Fordyce – here on the cusp of the holidays. And, yes, Phil French's characteristic lines grace the j-card and label this time.
Grab one now!

In case you're, uh, putting a year end list together – and happen to own a Metaphysical Circuits tape or download (or soon will) – the below graphic is (also) a reminder of what the label released in 2014!

Come early 2015, tapes from Tresilaze, Jack McConnell, and International Debris will enchant us. Ideas for (thematic) digital compilations are being ironed out, too. Otherwise, I plan on taking things slower; I'm not accepting new demos for cassette releases yet, and – as personal non musical projects take precedence – not sure I'll quite get to 26 releases next year... but who knows, right?

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.

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

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.)

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.

*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 12, 2014


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.

August 14, 2014


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?!
