Big fan of all things Sloow, well, almost all things (nothing is perfect), so I can guarantee you a couple more of their OOP releases will appear in coming months.
This was the last release of 2005 for Sloow Tapes capping off a rather successful first year - Keijo, Uton, MCIAA... Limited to 65 copies each with a hand cut octopus (or 'squidopus' - as described on Sloow's site) stuck to the J-card.
Now I'm not 100% sure how this was created so please excuse me if I'm slightly wrong, but the two pieces on here (one per side) are apparently made from Number None's 'Nervous Climates' disc (see previous post). The two guys in NN rejigged the sounds and then sent them off to MPA to remix.
Just listening to the tape I wouldn't have guessed. The two pieces are poles apart with the A-side sounding like an ambulance riding haunted winds and the B-side sounding like Charlie playing cars inside Willy Wonka's bubble machine.
Tracks 1 and 7 of the MPA release in the last post will be re-posted tomorrow (ran out of time tonight).
L'Animaux Tryst has closed until 2010, their releases will only be available via distros. "L'animaux Tryst is going with the natural order of things and preparing for a brief hibernation period. We're shutting down shop till at least January, at which point we'll take a moment to re-assess."

The next couple of Under the Spire releases could be real sleepers - by that I mean unspotted gems. Apparently they will be from Ous Mal (myspace) and Martin Herterich (myspace).
Root Strata should be re-opening soon and will most likely have the new Barn Owl LP for sale - not saying definitely but it was on sale at their recent festival thing.
