Jeremy P. Bushnell Josh Mason's "Dark Thread and Other Colors" is a great record. Nathan McLaughlin's "Nothing to Be Sad About" is a great record. I didn't know the two of them had collaborated until I stumbled upon this digital version of a cassette release. Hushed, gorgeous.

originally released as a split cassette with nathan mclaughlin on tape drift

an homage to the teac 3440 reel to reel tape machine. harmonic distortion: 0.8%

"it is true…we both enjoy reel to reel machines, and it is true we dedicated this split release to the TEAC 3440 “as an instrument”. what is even more true is that what [we] truly share in common is an approach….and an attitude that seems to meet us in the morning when we awake….and that stays with us into the long night hovered over our equipment. it is this approach that is really what this cassette means to me. an approach i can only refer to as….candor." —nathan mclaughlin
