DEAD SONGS is a collection of music written by $BADGER, that, for one reason or another, never developed into songs that would be performed live. Because we are primarily a live band, we dubbed this music as 'dead' simply because it had fallen out of our normal focus. The music is not without its merit, however; we found some golden bits in these recordings, and we hope that you will as well.
All music written by $BADGER. Recorded on single condenser microphone, or through iPhone 4 voice memo capabilities. No songs were named or pre-rehearsed. Mastered ever so slightly by Daniel Davis.
TAHRC-024 IS SOLD OUT.

Wichita’s Joel Cachero (aka Golden Living Room) creates some extremely chilled out jams on this cassette – lots of layers of electronic sounds with a bent analog lean that finishes smooth.
"Forged from the circuitry of one man's motherboard & from the darkest depths of Kansas lies a whole new experience...Golden Living Room. 'Plug in, Drop Out' & lose yourself in a world of ambience, and free your mind from the mundane. You too, can make your living room one that is golden by calling 1-800-GLD-LVRM today."
