Lovely review and photos (!!!) of the Departure 2019 tape on the Raised by Cassettes blog. “There are a lot of sounds in here all at once- some slip beats and some static which makes it even begin to sound like a swarm of bees- and yet when you hear them all combined, in their formation together, it sounds like magic…”

“If there was ever the perfect example of ‘soundscapes’ this is it. So much to take in, so much to get lost in. Sometimes twisted but always enchanting.”
