Various - We Are Time Mixtape Vol 1. (2023)

Back into the pile of tapes in the CCPS office, starting with this excellent compilation from Jesse Locke and Chandra Oppenheim's We Are Time label. This tape is bookended by two of the great weirdos of our city - Chad VanGaalen kicks things off with a mix of free jazz and Glassworks-ish repetitive rhythms, while AuntBibby closes out the affair with a super fun electonic number that would fit along nicely with, say, Eine Kleine China's last album. Oh, and the second track on here is a great power pop ditty from expats Motorists.

We bought this just for those three tracks - but it's also got Tough Age and a bunch of other swell bands that are worth checking out. This is a well-curated tape - you might be able to snag a copy via the We Are Time bandcamp
