“Ultra Violet” by Paul Hayworth was recorded on cheap home 4-track tape machine, left to gather magnetic radiation scars for two decades and then slowly roasted in a walkman, re-mastered on 16 track digital and now turned into an ‘atmospheric supernova’ on Bandcamp. So there you go.
“I intended to record the album completely on my 4-track, but it broke before I could finish the album. So, I finished the album on my computer, which also broke shortly after”. That’s reason enough for us to share this album by Thom Coombes.

We say: listen.

“A collection of your favorite Christmas songs, merrily reinterpreted with exotic cheer, unexpected instrumentations, and mischievous smirks”. That’s what Tribecastan offer on their Twisted Christmas EP.
In their own words: “On their first single, “God Rest Ye Three Kings,” Tribecastan takes us on a midnight joyride across the desert sands with a figgy pudding of hand drums, sitar, sarod, mandocello, brass and bulbul tarang. This tongue in cheek amalgam of yule tide spirit and holiday chutzpah is a change of pace from the standard seasonal-tunes of old.”
The Twisted Chrismas EP is available on Bandcamp.
