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)”

So, there has been a lot of talk and babble from us about our second tape - a mixtape, combining some of the best underground garage/surf and chillwave/ambient/electronic tracks about today. Thankfully, I can finally (it feels like a ‘finally’) announce that we will be selling these, from Record Store Day onwards (which, for those unaware, is the 21 of April, 2012).
They are limited to a mere 15 copies, so they wont be lasting long. I honestly think that this mixtape is bloody awesome - they all came together really beautifully. I love the way it fits together, the tracks themselves, the cover, and I’m still not sick of any of the songs after listening to the mixtape about 30 times - which is always good.
It is the † tape. We will be selling them for £2.50 - there are 20 tracks in total. If you’re not interested in the tape itself (of which, the tape itself is a beautiful red, hand numbered), the free download/stream of both sides is listed below, on our Soundcloud. Also, if you’re not sure, just give it a listen - hopefully you’ll want what we got.

If you could either reblog this or do soemthing to let people know about this, that’d be great. All we want is to share some of the best new music right now, that we fucking love and we think everyone deserves to give a try. So, even if you don’t buy a tape from us, listening to or downloading the tracks would mean the world to us and to the bands involved. 
We love you lots.

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.
