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!

Unur “No Human Self” cassette/download OUT TODAY

Friends, today we find the digital release (tapes coming in a week or so) of the follow-up to Unur’s two previous Modern Tapes Eps/Genetic Music 12″.  This is the first proper full length to come from this nomadic one person band.  13 new songs of further evolved post-wave noir, created from an eclectic mix of vintage and modern analogue synthesizers washed with a haze of ever increasing guitar buzz. This is the next step.

European Tour with Froe Char February-March 2014 details SOON.
