Tabs Out: Laser Focus #2
Hooker Vision

Tabs Out is an all-cassette podcast that’s been documenting the prolific tape underground with joyful obsession and humorous expertise since 2012. Tiny Mix Tapes has teamed with Tabs Out for a show called Laser Focus, in which tape aficionados/fetishists Mike Haley, Dave Doyen, and Joe B hone in on a specific label or artist. Check out the archive here.


For the past five years, the lawfully wedded duo of Grant and Rachel Evans have been dispensing generous amounts of drone and synth chillers on their label Hooker Vision. With releases by their own projects (Motion Sickness Of Time Travel, Crippling, Quiet Evenings, etc.) and a proficient crew of worldwide jammers, they have racked up well over 100 releases, mostly on cassette.

We talked with Grant and Rachel about their home/noise lives and played tapes from the Hooker Vision catalog by Coyote Image Classic, Cliffsides, Sparkling Wide Pressure, Crippling, Motion Sickness Of Time Travel, and Rambutan.

Here is a list of what we played:

- Coyote Image Classic - Coyote Image Classic 2xCS (HV129)
- Cliffsides - Liquid Mirrors C72 (HV091)
- Sparkling Wide Pressure - Pretending Eternal C38 (HV127)
- Crippling / Digtal Natives - Split C24 (HV123)
- Motion Sickness Of Time Travel - Eclipse Studies C41 (HV133)
- Rambutan - Partial Wires C30 (HV101)
