hand-numbered edition of 50 blue foil cassettes with color covers.
music / link : http://tolmieterrapinpress.bandcamp.com/album/horse-thieves
sharp and haunting, guilty country rock. plenty of slide hooks to cut your hands, sad songs to walk down dusty roads to, with the blood moon hanging low in the sky. like a gunslinger away from his desert home and trapped in a rainy forest, counting down the days.

hand-numbered edition of 100 dark blue tapes with black and white covers.
music / link : http://tolmieterrapinpress.bandcamp.com/album/the-dictaphone
our favorite french ban retunes with a slew of dirty, pummeling tunes. partially live, grinding away, a weird feeling under flesh. melodies screaming for help from behind the fire,—like a good looking monster retuning to the barn to sleep off excitement of a fresh kill !
“french psych garage and noise makers return with another collection of borderline fuzz with hallucinogenic beats, claustrophobic drones, killer bass and distortion that threatens to melt your ears and send you straight into the state of clinical madness.” - audiopleasure
“fuzzy with a side of seasick chord modulations, megaphone ready lyrics, and animal-ish drum beats.” - earmilk

music / link : http://tolmieterrapinpress.bandcamp.com/album/dragger
this leaked out of the coffin, rumors of being back from the dead…again ! this time with a small onslaught of noisy synth pop. speakers crumbling, taking their own lives, blown up and out. sounds of ghosts leaving.
“weird stuff, the frenetic synth-sludge jam ‘bridge.’ the whole tape is seriously awesome.” - cleveland music
“keyboards put through the brain blender. melodic and discomforting. like finding some one’s personal effects buried under a tree at the precise moment they’ve come back to claim them.” - no surf in cleveland
“this is like ‘sparks’ meeting some twisted form of electronic pop punk in hell. if that sounds cool to you, then i’m lacking the proper words to describe exactly how this made my skin crawl. run me through with a spear. please. kill me now. - cassette gods
