Atariame (Natalia Salmina)

It’s that time again: the long-running (15 years, if you must know) Los Angeles based Not Not Fun have officially jump-started their 2019 with a trio of cassettes from projects beamed in from across the globe, all making their NNF debuts.

The first release is from Danish musician Dreamers Cloth (Jonas Frederiksen), whose Vitrospection 2008-2009 collects tracks from across older cassette releases “into a patchwork voyager’s hour of highlights, reflections, and reveries.”

The next set of transmissions come courtesy of Russian sound sculptor Atariame (Natalia Salmina). Voiceless is a spool of “futurist-noir nocturnes” with track titles that convey late night/early morning isolation and solitude (“Outside at 5am,” “Desk Lamp,” and “Lost in a Forest”).

The third tape is from Oakland’s Channelers (Sean Conrad, who runs the Inner Islands label). For Being is a continuation and evolution of Channelers’ extensive discography of calming, meditative, and healing tones mean to “evoke ‘the simplest conceivable state: being.’”

All three tapes are out June 21, with a track from each streaming below, along with tracklists for your perusal.
