Spool’s Out Radio #166: Ge(rman)Ar(my)
September 24, 2019 01:19 AM PDT
Nice summer? Yeah ours was great. Lots of tapes coming in the post, dangerously hot weather beating down on my sweaty face while lying around the city with my walkman blaring worn copies into cheap headphones. But the first day of Autumn is here – and thus something of another annual tradition is too in the form of an anonymous and strange mix of gear from GeAR (aka, mysterious Californian outfit, German Army). Half the unreleased/new/unusable stuff is by the mothership itself, the other half is solo stuff by one of its pilots, Mr. Peter Kris (not that one). No further explanation necessary.Spool’s Out Radio #165: RXM Reality
July 23, 2019 01:04 AM PDT
RXM Reality – the Chicago-based purveyor or wild synths and percussion stabs on Hausu Mountain's latest killer tape – takes the reigns for over half of today's show. The guest mix is as erratic and brainmelting as you'd hope. I pick the cassette-tapey entrée and dessert this week too, including math-jazz from Carey, and a first listen to experimental sound artist/composer Cyanching's stirring piece about the formation of her Taiwanese homeland.Spool’s Out Radio #164: Hearty Stops

After a brief break, we're back at new monthly intervals. While this is going to mean future Spool's Outs become more detailed, focused, and documentarian in style... that doesn't apply this time. Here we've got our usual mix of recent tape releases from across the board, providing us and our walkmans with plenty of rest from the bleak outside world...Spool’s Out Radio #163: Asimov in Whitstable
March 28, 2019 01:22 AM PDT
This week, London-based artist Beachers (aka Daryl Worthington) presents a collage built from a day trip to the Kent coastal town of Whitstable earlier this month. It is called Asimov in Whitstable. It is entirely built from "either second hand tapes bought on that day, or field recordings taken on a cassette Dictaphone."
Beachers recently released a tape of arpeggios and synth drone titled Language Shapes the View. Full explanation of this show on spools-out.comSpool's Out Radio #162: Bredbeddle
March 13, 2019 04:13 PM PDT
A large chunk of today's show is dedicated to a recording of a live set by Nottingham-based artist Bredbeddle (aka Rebecca Lee), made last year at Primary in Nottingham.
Musician/composer/artist Rebecca Lee makes has made music using variety of systematic methods in the past, but Bredbeddle focuses on collages made by "organising ideas from different musical situations/scenes". This recording represents the first live appearance of the project.
Also in this episode: new music from HRNS, Massimo Pupillo, Dis Fig, and Beachers!Spool's Out Radio #161: Nancy Drone
February 28, 2019 01:15 AM PST
Berlin-based Nancy Drone (real name Molly Gunn) is a young American bending arpeggiated electronics, giddy drones, and beats into some fresh experimental electronics. Her debut tape just dropped via Conditional Recs, and with that in mind she's put together this deep mix to get lost in...Spool’s Out Radio #160: Fe2 O3
February 14, 2019 02:00 AM PST
We're still in an ambient mood during this early part of the year, rifling through those tape collections in search of winter. London-based tape DJ Fe2 O3 contributes a guest mix with precisely as much in mind this week, doing his best to capture the mood and tempo.Spool's Out Radio #159: Seasonal Affective Drones
January 24, 2019 03:00 AM PST
An episode dedicated to droning and ambient sounds, worn down to fit the season. Featuring new and recent music from Dino Spiluttini, Machinefabriek, and Kyle Landstra, plus a new upcoming tape by Broshuda.Spool's Out Radio #158: Life After Cold Storage
January 17, 2019 03:42 AM PST
Time to rise out of the ooze and ashes, and make something fucking beautiful again... This week sees 2019's tape catalogue already off to a killer start - plus we dedicate a bit of time to forgotten gems from 2018. JIO's introverted future pop kicks things off, followed by Adderall Canyonly heading into newly psychedelic territory. Other highlights include a first listen to upcoming releases by Graham Dunning and Sam Underwood's Mammoth Beat Organ, followed by Moroccan Gnawa trance, Iranian avant-noise, and Yanks dueling acoustic guitars...Spool’s Out Radio #157: Eoin Murray

We open up a new year of digging into new music released on tape with a guest selection of cassette tape tunes picked my music journalist Eoin Murray.
