mt016 Mitra Mitra “s/t” cassette
Full length debut by this new duo from Vienna.  Minimal synth with melody and wit. Catchy, dry and too smart for its own good. silkscreened Chipboard jackets limited edition of 100.

mt017 Verhalten “never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity” cassette
another debut. this time a new project from Unur’s patrick scott.  While Unur focuses more on stories of broken selves and melodic coldwave, Verhalten finds its noir-ish minimalism in radio static and rhythm.  Industrial, noise and muted dark techno all make their presence known.  This project has been brewing in various forms for a few years, this is its debut.  silkscreened black cardstock jackets limited edition of 50.

mt018 Unur “Halt And Start” cassette
long overdue follow up to 2015’s “the key broke off in the lock” Ep.  Four songs of  urgent post punk/synth wave from Modern Tapes’ resident anti-troubador.  silkscreened black cardstock jackets limited edition of 50

New Froe Char + Unur AVAILABLE NOW!!!

Hey friends!

so, many of you have noticed that the new Froe Char Lp and Unur cassette are released but not available for mailorder from MT.  Yeah.  Sorry about that.  You see, MT is a one person operation and i am rather far away from my tapes and records currently.  HERE IS THE SOLUTION!!!

you can order the Froe Char Lp in the US from the kind, wonderful folks at permanent records in chicago by clicking THIS LINK

you can still get it in Europe from Spielzeug Muzak

Both the Unur and Froe Char releases are also available in the US from Heaven Street Records in Brooklyn, Laurie’s Planet Of Sound in chicago and End Of An Ear in Austin, Tx.  Their websites aren’t the easiest to mailorder from but an email or phone call will get you taken care of.  they are all lovely people.  tell them i say “hi!”

in Europe you can find our stuff at WOOL-E-SHOP in Gent, Belgium and the amazing TRANSFORMER in Vienna, Austria.

Regular mailorder will resume in May and hopefully by the time i leave again i’ll have someone in line to help with the mailorder for the rest of the summer.  sorry for the confusion and complications.  thank you as always for your continued support of the music i make and love!
