Sparkling Wide Pressure/No Mind Meditation – Split c30
Some record labels take some time to develop before demanding the music world’s attention; others come right out the gates fully loaded and ready to blow people’s minds. It goes without saying that Paramita Recordings is in the latter category, welcoming itself into the world with three split-releases featuring some of the most acclaimed and celebrated acts in the current underground of cassette coolness, packaged with flat-out jaw-dropping artwork. Best of all is this wickedly warped split starring ZE favorites Sparkling Wide Pressure and No Mind Meditation. SWP presents another reason why we all need more of his gorgeous, lopping guitar-sprinkled drone, and NMM goes even further into the realms of subconscious, psychedelic new-worlds ambience. Revelatory, chill-inducing stuff.

No Mind Meditation – Face Skull Spirit
Goldtimers Tapes is a brand new label based in Chicago and they’ve just hit it out of the park with their first batch. Stunning releases from ambient heroes Deep Magic and Red Electric Rainbow make this set of tapes instantly gratifying and a guaranteed pleasure, but it’s this gorgeous release from newcomers No Mind Meditation that excites me the most. As mysterious and illusive as NMM seems to be, Face Skull Spirit is a beautiful and welcoming collage of sonic weirdness – music that’s as warm and embracing as it is spacey and foreign. Some truly strange noises grace this tape but once it’s over, the only thing you’re going to want to do is press play again. More please!
