Hausu Mountain finds rooftop, megaphone, shouts about new tape batch including Mondo Lava, Dreamcrusher, Tiger Village

Clear the laboratory, ladies and gents, we got us a news post about a tape batch, coming in all triple-wide and germ-like, set to spinning fast in the centrifuge of your mind by horrorcat-themed jokers Hausu Mountain, and manifesting in our homes and automobiles in the form of cassettes from Mondo Lava, Dreamcrusher, and Tiger Village. Set aside, if you please, the fact that it’s scientifically impossible for any germ or germ-like object to morph into a cassette (Dolby NR or no) and roll with me. My friend, this isn’t some science blog your mom linked you to, nope it’s a very real music website, and around these music website parts we sometimes use made up metaphors to get our point across. The denuded point is this: with a thirst to release tapes not quenched by a Jerry Paper and Andy Boay split, or even by a thoroughly sick Moth Cock release, Hausu Mountain (a label run in part by TMT’s very own Mukqs) will release a brand-new three cassette batch on October 21. After a quick consult with your financial planner, of course, you are encouraged to purchase any and all of these cassettes.

First off we’ve got Mondo Lava’s — a mysterious duo out of California — debut Parrot Head Cartridge, which is an hour-long deep dive into looping, crackling tropicalia steam, panned like gold through the underground/noise/drone vibe you know and still love despite the fact that it sometimes stands you up at the farmer’s market. Dreamcrusher, which is a project from Wichita’s Luwayne Glass, presents with Suicide Deluxe, saying to you, over drinks maybe, that “noisy techno” isn’t usually as noisy as it claims to be, and goes ahead and tries to singlehandedly right that ship with screeches and squalls of feedback only choked by kick drum slams. Finally, thirdly, adverbly, there’s Tim Thornton’s work as Tiger Village with V. Thornton’s play is an exercise in brim-stuffing, filling every available crevice with wacked-out synth buzzes and thumps until the whole thing tumbles end over end into something surprisingly taut. You can pre-order the whole batch here, and, because science and The Lord have blessed us, we’ve got streams of a track from each tape below. There’s “Shimmering” by Mondo Lava, “Godless Chic” by Dreamcrusher, and “Cascades” by Tiger Village. If you haven’t clicked yet, you soon will.
