Ailanthus Recordings and No Problema Tapes release “/ ~ ? /” by toad computers
Ailanthus Recordings and No Problema Tapes are co-releasing a new album by toad computers, titled / ~ ? /. The album is ECCOJAMS-influenced vapornoise, with the distinct amusicality of noise mixed with the narcotic pitch/tempo-shifting of ECCOJAMS. Samples run from the Windows 7 shut-down sound to nature field recordings to cashiers ringing, all mixed with heavily-edited pop or soul songs (it’s honestly hard to tell on that last one). The album is split into another side called / ~ ? / continued.htm, which is marketed as a separate release through Ailanthus Recordings but merged with its parent into one album on the No Problema Tapes release. Both labels have released the album as a pay-what-you-want digital download; No Problema Tapes is also selling cassettes for $8 USD in an edition of fifty.
