At the time when I purchased my Foresteppe piece there were four other pieces available. To this day I could just kick myself for not buying all of them. 'Kosichkin Tapes' was one of them. DAMN
Numbered blue cassettes, edition of 15. Includes two A7 postcards with archive photos & original Kosichkin reel-to-reel tape loops. Packed into silk-screened craft paper sleeve & hand-stamped craft paper bag with ziplock & aluminum foil inside.
Made with love.
Includes unlimited streaming of Kosichkin Tapes
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
Over the course of more than 10 years, since the beginning of the 70-ies to the first half of the 80-ies, the head of an ordinary Soviet family, using a reel tape machine, recorded songs sung by his wife, poems recited by his children, his favourite music played from vinyl and aired on the radio and lots of other things. Miraculously, the archive remained intact. The new Klammklang release is a collage pieced together from these recordings.
