EARTH TONES T-Shirt Sampler & New Tape

For the tenth EM Tapes release, we will be dropping EARTH TONES, a t-shirt sampler from LIFE EDUCATION! Pre-orders are being accepted and all include a FREE tape (details below)!

This officially releases on 4/22/18 aka EARTH DAY.

Made in limited edition of 25 green t-shirts; each edition includes a shirt, a download code of the album packaged with a recycled postcard, and a special 1990's throwback "Earth Button" created by Brittany Pärk.

 
Shirts are 50/50 polyester / cotton on Jerzees tee.


EARTH TONES is a sonic love letter to our wonderful planet; some songs are political (End of the Line, Cost of Doing Business, State of Disillusion), others are dystopian in their interpretations in the current  reality (No Time, Dead Earth Blues, Recycled Life). All songs were created for purposes of earth worship.

Partial proceeds from the album will be donated to the Colorado Tree Coalition.


Pre-orders will ship as close to Earth Day as possible but since a different LIFE EDUCATION cassette is also dropping around the same time, Beyond the Red Waste, I'll be including this new tape with all t-shirt orders!



Beyond the Red Waste is releasing on limited edition cassette (40) from Cruel Nature Records of the UK on pro-produced chrome and this is a good chance to get sweet bundle.

Celebrate Earth Day with EM Tapes by showing your support of local non-profits!

Library Sounds Tape

Back in June, I had a special cassette released out of Portugal from the venerable OTA label called Library Sounds.
 This was released on 50 different covers from Fernando Brito and features over 40 minutes of hazy, mind-waves that drown all of your senses. It's a homage to ultra-weird library music from the 60's and 70's.

For Cassette Store Day, artist copies were finally made available in North America and only a few remain. Make sure to snag one from below!

Also, I have two Life Education cassettes dropping soon-ish: Self-Titled from Crippled Records of Denver and Night Hunt from Sinneslöschen of Los Angeles.. Preview both below and also keep an eye out for some Denver shows in 2018.
