Ps. That was a CHILLING night.
A GB update: Things are hazy as ever here @ GB and they’re about to get hazier! haha
Break time’s been over, shit’s about to get real. Real exciting that is! Student Loan Records & Green Burrito present 420 @ 360! So roll up that green and roll down 2 have a bammer night with some RAD bands.
AND.. it’s gonna be The Courtney’s cassette release!!!!!!!!!! Holy crap, I’m so pumped.
Walter TV just released their new album on bandcamp and it is majorly chill. Give it a whirl HERE.
Just finishing up a chill mix tape to play tonight while local ping pong enthusiasts show off their fly paddle styles. Gonna bring all my fav tapes too! Looking forward to tonight’s chill vibrations.
A while back we mentioned that Tim Presley, otherwise known as White Fence, would be releasing a double LP entitled Cheap Perfume. The LP will be released separately as simply Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. You can listen to the first cut from Vol.2, “King Of The Decade”, below. In addition to the double LP, White Fence will also be releasing a collaborative LP with Ty Segall, who Tim’s currently on tour with, titled Hair.
Both volumes of Cheap Perfume will be out through Woodsist. Vol. 1 drops April 3rd and we’ll see Vol. 2. May 15th. Hair will be out April 28th through Drag City. Check out the remainder of the Ty Segall/White Fence tour dates below.
Chill vibes continued… Just met an old man named George off Craigslist and bought 500 cassettes from him. George is a cool dude. He records himself reading magazines and dubs cassettes of them for the seeing impaired. A true giver indeed. Perfect timing too cause the Burrito’s got a slew of CHILL tapes to come out soon. So keep yer eyes ‘n ears open for those too.
George also mentioned that he had a bunch of blank VHS tapes in a bunch of different lengths. VHS/hi-8 experimentation time, boyeeeee.
Really stoked on this. A pal Colin and I have been working on a cassette bootlegging project and it’s gonna pop off pretty darn soon. Colin chose 14 off the shelves/shelved/hard to find recordings off the bat and were making custom length cassette releases for each of them. 10 copies of each to be made and sold at $2 a pop. 60’s Japanese psyche, Thai surf rock, 1st Motown record pressed and the list goes on. So pumped. More info soon!!
Think we might call it Total Distribution Corps. Hahaha
Oh yeah, to add to the ultimate coolness, my other good pal Kurtis Wilson is gonna help us print all of our tape covers on his new Risograph, the most bad ass printer ever invented. This puppy prints on everything from 4lb newspaper stock to 120lb card stock in an off-set/screen printed style at 130 pages a minute in bright opaque colors… So rad.
Good vibes here folks. Two Towns, Rolla Olak and The Butterfield Review take it to the sky tomorrow night @ China Cloud. Stoked. Really wish I had a bigger scanner too, cause this poster in it’s entirety is super cool.
Things are about to get really chill here @ Burrito HQ cause Two Towns just finished recording. Time to take a walk on the wild side, the vinyl side that is. Record coming soon. Yeah dogs…
This episode was pretty amazing! Ryan hooked an old cassette boom box up to the switch board and DJed live to air - tape hiss and all. Ryan runs a cassette label and releases primarily Vancouver bands like Bummer High, High Drops, Mac Demarco, Heavy Chains, Koko, etc.. and is working on a…
This was the CHILLEST day. Notable radio station fun times include: Being “on air” for the first time, Eating said cookie(it was really good) thx:), Melanie leaving the room for a couple seconds hand motioning to “keep talking” while she set up a cool impromptu phone interview with Bleached, a Calvin Johnson CiTR shout out recording, saying happy valentines day to my mom on air ‘cause she was listening and getting to play some rad jamz from some rad chillers.
Sup World? is really cool and you can listen to it on Tuesday mornings on CiTR 101.9 FM from 10:30-1130 am. Check it out HERE too
