new GLOCHIDS cassette, creosote encased within 

I can’t see that working. Everyone I know who ever tried encasings always ended up destroying the tape.

While this looks beautiful, it feeds into the whole “buy-to-display” crap kids are doing with records/tapes. Buy it to play it. Appreciate the music and not just the physical display of the vinyl/tape/packaging.

I see your concern, but this tape does play! However, it was also meant to be a somewhat conceptual/”art object” release, in that I do hope that eventually the foliage inside will alter the sound of the tape in some way. Besides being my favorite plant, and very representative of my Sonoran Desert homeland, creosote (Larrea tridentata) has very resinous leaves that might eventually stick to and warp the tape, which already consists of sound sourced from manipulated tape samples. I also chose it because it’s well-adjusted to dry desert conditions, and I expect it will remain intact within the cassette shell longer than most other plants would. 

This isn’t meant to retort what y’all are saying, I definitely agree with the sentiment that the music is most important, and I’m (mostly, haha) not into the commodification/fetishism that has drawn up prices of physical releases these days… These are just some of the intentions I had behind this tape that I never got to state publicly. Incidentally, the music can be heard here: https://glopuntia.bandcamp.com/album/tape-creosote Enjoy : )

I’m playing a show tonight at Muse Music Cafe in downtown Provo, Utah

I don’t think anyone will really be there, and that’s okay. Cause pretty soon we’re go into a studio and record everything live, straight to tape and then release it on vinyl. And then no one will buy it. And that’s okay too. Because let’s be honest. I’ve always been doing this for me in the first place.

This sums up my whole solo career.

I just made these three posters for shows I have coming up next month.

i love this video
