CROWDFUNDING 400/100

Thrilled to announce Metaphysical Circuits' next production: a three tape, three hour, 43 artist compilation, titled "400/100"! Hoping to have it out by late May/early June!


I can't quite finance this one on my own, so I've gone the (admittedly polarizing) crowdfunding route. Visit our Indiegogo page for full details, including info on rewards for backers!

TAPE IT FORTH AND BACK IN DISTANT AXIAL CITIES

Four of the only five physical releases we'll be doing for the time being were discreetly issued today: lengthy love letters from Tresilaze, Jack McConnell, International Debris, and V5N 2G8.

LAST ONE OF 2014 / LOOKIN' FO'WARD / QUICK REVIEW
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.

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.

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.

SLOW RE-AWAKENINGS

After months working behind (beneath?) the scenes, things are picking up steam, thanks two new tape releases, officially out today: Northville Tunnels "Fogged Walkers" and Demonstration Synthesis "DS1"

FINAL FIVE OF THE YEAR

I'll keep it extremely brief, with the holidays (aka. much less time to dub, assemble, and ship tapes for about a week/week and a ½) approaching.

FORGETFULNESS FEED

It can, sometimes, be "too much" to "manage" more than one "outlet" (this "blog", the mailing list, F'book...) Overuse of "quotes" aside, I never got around to announcing last week's two new releases outside Facebook. More viewers there than here, sure, but there are still likely to be a few who only check here. Apologies, thus, for the "lateness" of this announcement...

LATE & EARLY / DWINDLING SUPPLY OF OLDER STOCK / PSEUDO REDACTION

"Five Mindsets", a new cryptic scenery cassette with an MCMC131029 cat. no., was unveiled yesterday, and but not made available until today (131030.) Thrilled to be working with cryptic scenery/Christian H. Sötemann again - the first release I did with him was a CD-R way back in 2001.

DOWNLOAD/STREAM/ENJOY. . . #2 / CASSETTE DUPLICATION WOES

Metaphysical World Pieces #2 is (a)live! Slightly shorter than its rather lengthy predecessor, this one's more, I suppose, dark and drone-y, less synth/beat-based (but not completely devoid of it.) Hugely pleased with the result!

"SOMETHING" FROM CLOUD CHOIR 

Out now, and bit out of left field, a tape from Beijing (by way of Ireland and the U.S.) duo Cloud Choir! A tape of a previously released digital album - not something I would normally do, but Metaphysical Circuits has been wanting to work with Cloud Choir for a while.

NEW CEREMONIES AT TAPEHENGE

Catching up, I am happy to report four new releases out... "semi officially" over the past few days; the "release-date-as-catalogue-number" concept is tricky to commit to, not least in a "batch-oriented industry." Shall have to consider revising things for 2014.

MORE DOWNLOADS UP, YUP / CASSETTE STORE DAY

Digital downloads (well, there's no such thing as an "analogue download") of several Metaphysical Circuits titles have recently been added to Bandcamp.

DOWNLOAD/STREAM/ENJOY

Metaphysical World Pieces #1 is live! Over two hours of highly meditative dream sequences, noise-laced elation, and technocratic twists... from an international cavalcade of meticulous music makers (see graphic/player.)

THREE NEW GEMS FOR EARLY JEWEL EYE

Finally available: new music on pro duplicated cassettes – nifty artwork too, if I may be so bold – from the stellar Dura, Strange Mountain, and Amalgamated

AVAILABILITY / SCARCITY

Our eighth release is also the first to be sold out at source: Metaphysical Circuits has exactly zero copies of Guenter Schlienz's "The Norman Tapes" left!

SILVER-LINED SHORES

Delays beyond our control mean the Amalgamated, Strange Mountain, and Dura tapes won't be out for at least another week (they're not yet in our possession.) But, surprise surprise, Guenter Schlienz's "The Norman Tapes" is out now, today!

TWO NEW ONES THE PAST TWO DAYS, FOUR MORE VERY SOON (PLUS A DIGITAL COMPILATION)

Indeed, Metaphysical Circuits does not do batches, but, rather, one-release-per-day, often in close succession. Still, we sometimes have trouble keeping up (today being one such time.) Introducing, nonetheless, a pair of enchanting new tapes... and four more, to be released, well, see below for a rough (but hopefully accurate) schedule:

NOSEPH JANNER / LEVVELS C48 --- OUT NOW

Minor delay in the launching festivities - the flu did a number on us, but we are now well enough to finally kick things off! We're very excited to be unleashing our first release for you this very moment: a split between Noseph Janner and Levvels! (Available now; shipping starting the 14th, a Monday.)
