The Poly Shores - s/t



The Poly Shores - Catsup 



The Poly Shores - Badminton Champion
Frothing at the mouth like Cujo without a bone, Calgary’s Poly Shores play over the top spaz jams that are also earworms (in a good way). Think Ponytail minus the gibberish or Toni Basil fronting a math-rock band — with or without the cheerleader outfits — and you might be in the right ballpark. Originally self released in 2010, and now reissued by POTT as a limited run cassette. Edition of 50, pro dubbed, rhodamine red.

Arcseconds // Sundrips split [Cover art: Marc Rimmer]



Arcseconds - Lima Yankee Seven Alpha by Planet of the Tapes 



Sundrips - Soft Span (excerpt) by Planet of the Tapes
After months of preparation, the c40 split from Berlin-based cosmonaut Arcseconds and Montreal’s dreamiest drone duo Sundrips is ripe for the gripping. With his debut transmission, Arcseconds’ side is a four-song suite on the theme of space crafted from eerie vocal samples, stuttering beats and computers gone haywire. Sundrips fill side 2 with the 18-minute drifter “Soft Span”, utilizing their trademark array of cascading synths, time sculpting pedal effects and tickling flickers of guitar scorch, meditating at the temple of Kosmische Musik. Available in a black on black or purple/silver sleeve.
SOLD OUT. Copies may still be available from Tomentosa or DNT, so please contact them for orders.
