MY HAIR IS A RAT'S NEST - The Longing Machine (cassette)
MY HAIR IS A RAT’S NEST ‘The Longing Machine’ cassette EP (TT076)
For fans of: Life, To Be Gentle, and Vi som älskade varandra så mycket.
New Mexico solo project MY HAIR IS A RAT’S NEST has just released their most epic, longest, best, and most hi-fi recording to date with the prodigious 23-minute track “The Longing Machine”. Released on just 34 cassettes housed in some truly ridiculous packaging, Jake manages to capture a plethora of influences, styles, moods, and movements into a seamless, engaging, and downright fantastic EP…? Song? Whatever we’re calling it, the adjective preceding it is “fantastic”. Part Life, part Vi som älskade varandra så mycket, the intricacies and power of the band have been magnified by the stellar addition of Sammy Gurule on bass and the recording/mixing/mastering efforts of Nick Sanfe, creating a unique, lush, and captivating experience.
Tapes /34, 15 on clear box swirl, 15 on mystery box swirl, and 4 test dips, all with numbered insert. 1 song, 23 minutes.
