Sparkling Wide Pressure - Dream of Windows c40
TQ62: Edition of 100 (LAST COPY)



Sparkling Wide Pressure makes a welcome return to the label. In the three years that have passed since we released Sing What You Remind Me Of, creative powerhouse Frank Baugh's solo project has remained consistently engaging on an almost unbelievable level. Dream of Windows features further excavations into his singular style, which blends the warmth of psychedelic pop with the spaciousness, dissonance, and free-form nature of experimental music. Cascades of acoustic and electric guitar picking meet otherworldly keyboard melodies, confounding cassette playbacks, and low-fi drum machine beats. Baugh's voice regularly seeps into the mix like a mournful ghost singing arcane poetry as he plays with vocal manipulations and syncopation in even more off-kilter ways than usual. Altogether, it adds up to another brilliant piece of an already astonishing catalog that melds the strange and the beautiful in ways that few others can. Pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle. Comes with a free digital download.

Imperial Topaz - Full of Grace LP
TQ56: Edition of 300



It's a thrill to present the full-length debut from Brooklyn's Imperial Topaz. Following a cassette EP and a split with Motion Sickness of Time Travel, Full of Grace finds the duo of Caroline Teagle and Zachary Zierden venturing into icy new territory on their most accomplished release to date. What's so striking about the album is its ability to convey a sense of mood in a way that resonates deeper with each listen. Combining lush synth melodies and sequences with downbeat drum machines and Teagle's gentle, nuanced vocal delivery, the album carries a profound sense of sadness and loss. Still, hope and shining rays of crystalline beauty constantly shimmer beneath the surface. Each song is tautly composed, yet there's a remarkable sense of space throughout that allows each verse, chorus, and instrumental element to sink in and echo deep within your psyche. Jump into the reflecting pool and let its cool waters wash over you. Mixed and mastered for vinyl by Jay Heiselmann at Death By Audio, featuring full color artwork by Caroline Teagle. Comes with free digital download.
