My Cassette Collection #4

I can’t quite remember how I got into FOXES IN FICTION, but I think it was during a certain glory year at Pitchfork, around 2010. I had gotten into a good habit of delving into their Forkcast page, picking up different, weird and interesting downloads, getting into other great musicians like LOST BOY ?, ELEPHANT & CASTLE, WASHED OUT, FOREST SWORDS, etc, artists mainly scouted by Larry Fitzmaurice. It was a rare moment of excitement in my musical discovery, of finding a place and time where good, interesting new music was being centred into one place, that didn’t seem to happen often, due to people’s lazy approach to music. Chillwave was getting attention and the underground seemed fascinated with callback electronic music that sounded like something out of New York Ripper or something. This lead onto other artists doing different alternative electronic music to get attention.

One of the finds there was FOXES IN FICTION, and his track FLASHING LIGHTS ARE ENDING NOW, a dream pop song that had such a lush and magical chord progression. I delved into the album most closely associated with the song, and that was Warren Hildebrand (FIF)’s first album, "SWUNG FROM THE BRANCHES", a kaleidoscope release of plush ambience, delicate nu-progressive electronica, downbeat pop music and rippling and shimmering soundscapes. The album was an experience for me, a transcendence.

To me it felt like an audio equivalent of dying, being in a hosptial bed and waiting to pass into the afterlife, but on some of the most blissful drugs known to humankind. The way the album twists and turns is remarkable and, despite the flow, has so much variation throughout and is essentially an ambient prog pop album. The first half is essentially a beautiful electronic sea of shore lappings and rock cascadings, leading to the otherside which turns into an uplifting catalogue of uplifting and beautifully fun dream pop songs, from “JIMI BLEACHBALL”, “15 ATIVAN (SONG FOR ERIKA)”, “MEMORY POOLS” and “SNOW ANGELS”. In a lot of ways, this release is very scoric, in the same way people say that “THREE LOVE SONGS” by RICKY EAT ACID is, and is a release that you feel like you have ‘experienced’ after you hear it, like a beautiful film.

FAV TRAXXX: “8/29/91”, “Basement Windows”, “Jimi Bleachball”, “15 Ativan (Song for Erika)”

I am very happy to announce that we will be putting out a selected discography cassette of the great Videosforpictures work up until now. Let’s call it a best of, of sorts. 
If you’re fatefully unaware of who V4P is yet, quite frankly, you’re missing out. It’s primarily a solo project of the young Jay Lancaster, a New England youth, currently residing in Poughkeepsie, New York. He has been home recording his stuff since i’ve known him, his first EP ‘Very Three’ barely audible sometimes, having been recorded on a rubbish old video recorder. His work is a poignet collection of melancholic, foreboding, confessional and technically diverse and beautiful piano led songs. Somewhat in the vein of Thom Yorke when hitting the piano keys, but still distinguished and unlike a lot of modern music anybody hypes about. Almost baroque in a lot of ways, with folk influence, noise influence, rock influence and general balladry (in the best sense of the word).
He has been making music since about 2007, and has been one of the only artists I have ever known to be so consistently great with everything he has put out…and yet he is still completely unknown, only having just over 71 likes on Facebook. It’s a crime. 
This release is a bid to get this brilliant musician some attention, attention he dearly deserves and has been long over due for many years, despite his talent, dedication and individuality. 
The release will contain music from all of the releases he has put on in the past:
Very Three: The Underground Sessions (2008)Endo Fanera (a collection of songs written between 2007-2009) Anomie Family Brain (2011) It’s Fine, It Happens (2011) 10 Minutes With…Videosforpictures (2011) Joy Farm (2012)
He did release another EP quite recently called Good Dream Revised (2013), but I wont be putting any songs off there onto the discography. 
I hope you guys will like what you hear, because I fucking love this guy and I am privileged to know the dude. Please download his EPs, give him some Facebook likes, share this page with your follows and post about it on Facebook. Make it your life’s work to get Videosforpictures more damn attention. 
FFO: Perfume Genius, Coma Cinema, Teen Suicide, Thom Yorke/Radiohead

I just uploaded the mixtape we’re hoping to put out soon.
A is a collection of awesome garage rock tracks and the B side is more downbeat, electronic based synthy stuff. The bands and artists (thus listed below) are some of the most enjoyable, talented musicians going today (or in the 80s, for The Gruesomes). I personally think it rocks.
I’ll keep you guys informed on the tape release of this. The tracklist is liable to change, but it will all become clear eventually.

I give you, The † TAPE. 
A collection of garage/surf tracks on one side, and chillwave/lofi-electronic tracks on the other. I’m really happy about this one. It’s a mixtape I (as in Eliot) put together, art as well. It’s full of some of my favourite musicians right now, and some of my favourite songs right now too. 
They’ll be £2.50 when they come out to be found at our bigcartel page. We’re still clearing initial permissions for track use, but I will include down below the brilliant musicians that have allowed us to put this out and use their fucking rad music. 
There will be 9 to sell. Although, we are thinking of making more in the future as we’re very happy about the product. A digital download of both A & B should be up soon, either on the Bandcamp, or elsewhere. YOU’LL KNOW. Don’t worry.
