Total Life - S/T

T: "Yo, you robbing me? What tapes do you have there? That's good... That's good... OH SHIT TOTAL LIFE!"
Me: "Is it awesome?"
T: "Dude, it's like everything that you want Growing to be."

Caves - s/t c15

Mind melting drones from Lexington nice guy Ben Allen (Wretched Worst, Benstances) on the now-defunct Blood Red Cassettes label. Side A features creeping war drums and malfunctioning short-wave static, while Side B holds a damaged guitar raga accompaniment for inter-stellar satellite beams. The whole thing plays out like the soundtrack for the deleted scenes of Apocalypse Now.
