Banana - Some Kind Of Telling Cassette
Providing the simple text 'Blowing into playback remembrances. Rescription. Some kind of telling.'
Banana seem to improvise in space, with considered timing, to-hand objects and bursts of feedback, voice and hidden instrumentation. The tape rings of previous releases of theirs such as MP Hopkins solo LP 'Blue-Lie Half Breath' on Penultimate Press or Alexandra Spence's 'a veil, the sea'. I hear nods to the 'Onkyo' scene in the whistling feedback and stark spaces. Comparisons to works by Akio Suzuki & David Toop seem plausible, but fail to capture the unique and captivating head space these pieces put you in. A playful dance between escapism and the everyday.
On professionally dubbed tapes with on-body printing and full colour j-card.
