Mixt Media Review: Archaic Fetishism Vol. 3 (tape)
Tape culture is alive & well at the DIY music label Edible Onion. To be honest, I didn't care much for the thrash & dirge of side A of Archaic Fetishism Volume 3, but side B soothed my aching ears. Side two starts off with "Helicopters" by A Stick & a Stone, a subdued indie folk piece full of ghostly harmonics that would make Sufjan Stevens proud. The Horror The Horror follows in a similar sonic vein with a dreamlike cover of Brian Reichert's song "I Like People." This tape is limited to 100 copies, and well worth seeking out for Side B alone.
