When two of your favorite labels put out a release, you get one Intergalactic Letdown, except a boon. Talking dreamy noise pop on existential themes, Tereshkova meanders through humnan wonders of When We Die and Illuminations with dreamy vocals, paced bass and delicately dropped keys, pieces slowly gaining in noise accoutrements. Elsewhere, they take a familiar atmospheric rock route on Halogen, Broken Teeth & Downtown, not a whole lot new but it’ll fill the corners of your room.Built with lush guitars, sharp synths, driving drum machines, dreamy vocals, and killer production … Tereshkova deliver tunes that could swim with Slowdive or drive with The Jesus and Mary Chain.
I’m drawn to the fuzzy play and quirk peppered throughout the album, that elevate Intergalactic Letdown above other opiated shoegaze releases. Panther, Poison and Lies & Existing Somewherehow do this best, taking them to natural highs with euphoric timbres and shuffling cadence, the real shine of this cassette. The rest of the tape volleys between synth and psychedelic rock with some sleepy but stand out slow jammers, Oh Andy and Red to Blue. Plenty here for your fall party mixes.
ATTN BANDS AND RECORDING MUSICIANS: I, Jake, am offering up cassette duplication services for cheap! 100 thirty minutes and under cassettes for $60. You supply the blank tapes. Over 30 minutes will be prorated, so just hit us up and we'll talk logistics, firstname.lastname@example.org.
A little bit about our duplication process:
We believe real-time dubbing is the way to go. STEREO WAV files are sent to our DIGI002 interface which has 8 outs and sends STEREO WAV files to our five high end, well maintained cassette decks. All done in real-time. We are constantly surveying the meters and their levels, while simultaneously scanning the previous dubs on a separate boombox to ensure quality of dub. The cassette decks used:
Obviously these are all different decks so the quality of the dubs will be a little different from deck to deck, but considering our price difference AND considering you’re wanting people to listen to a CASSETTE TAPE, I’d say the slight inconsistency is worth your time and money.
