Tone Deaf Tapes was started in 2021 as a way to affordably release music from our favorite local artists. We focus on ambient, drone, experimental, and the just plain weird. All tapes will be pressed once and in small batches. Once they are gone, they are gone. If you are interested in releasing something with us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Midnight Minds "Angsty Bodies" Cassette TDT-004
Chicago duo Midnight Minds drops a new release of their wonderful improvisational instrumental work. Incorporating guitar & violin over keyboards and laid back beats, its got a little drone, a little new age, a little psychedelic, but its all gorgeous, adventurous and soothing. Excellent stuff here folks!!
Prokharchin "Ardea Herodias" Cassette TDT-003
Ardea herodias is the debut release from Prokharchin. Analog synth bliss reminding us of 70's sci-fi soundtracks, Brian Eno and all your favorite thriftstore new age records. It's an amazing release.
Halve Maen Station "Self Titled" Cassette TDT-002
Stellar guitarist and friend of the shop Costa's solo ambient project. Instrumental psychedelic flavored guitar drone with unconventional structures to keep it interesting and unique. In Costa's words:
"Purge. Loop. Corrupt. Repeat.
Moments frozen and relived."
The Pants "Self Titled" Cassette TDT-001
Ambient solo project of Tony (Tone Deaf's owner) that he recorded in total boredom during the pandemic, and it actually turned out really good. According to Tony it's "music" that he created as a soundtrack for getting sucked up into a UFO. Eight mellow songs to fall asleep and get abducted to.
