Banana Pill / Calypso Borealis – Split

There is something to be said for a tape that just dominates the space in which it is being played. And when listening to this fantastic split – released by Full of Nothing, the hardest working tape label in Russia – I recommend that listeners take a break from whatever they are doing and simply absorb the mind-blowing sounds coming from this cassette. On Banana Pill’s side, sparkling synth drones morph into modern-classical-style arpeggios and guitar-led washes of ambience. On the flip-side, Calypso Borealis inflates a virtual inner tube of ethereal weirdness. The tape is complemented by a hand-folded zine containing label co-master Ivan Afanasyev’s illustrations, which are as beautiful and original as the music itself. A true work of art and a journey worth getting lost on.
