Extra! Extra! More delicious tapes-shaped-like-cookies coming your way in a freshly baked batch! This time they’re emerging from the deep dark elsewhere of Field Hymns! Three tasty releases from Oxykitten, Larry Wish, and Lips and Ribs, all dolled up and sprinkled with flaky sea salt!

Oxykitten’s Gleeking the Cube is a soundtrack to being chased round your living room by an extra-dimensional orb of brightness. The pulsing synths carry you away until your life goes totally 8-bit on you, and all you can see ahead is some nighttime highway with the Pacific Ocean in the almost-invisible distance. You’re on the run. Watch out, the pinball’s pinging your bumper, friend.

And oh, what’s this? You lost the orb and pulled off in some small town, dove inside an odds and ends shop to pass the time? Sure. And deep inside that little shop there’s a stack of old CRT displays busting out brightly colored and fragmented oscillations from a couple decades ago. A sound wells up. It’s Larry Wish wondering How More Can You Need?. Through the melting sonics you’re not sure how to answer, so it’s back to the 8-bit mobile parked in the alley.

A few miles down the highway and it’s boss fight time. You’ve avoided for too long, this towering beast that used to just be a glimmering ball of light has metastasized and with just the phaser in the glove box you’re not sure how much damage you can do. But on the radio a sound starts leaking out. It’s Lips and Ribs with Battle in Nagoya. The sounds are bitcrushed and perpetually speeding up. This is what each and every of us crave when faced with this kind of certain death. You whisper a thank you and stop the car.

All three releases are out on April 1, but you can stream AND pre-order them right now right here if your heart (and/or rumble-y tummy) desires.
