Sunshine Viper formed in Moline, IL during the summer of 2008 - when Daniel Davis was relocating from Wichita, KS to Iowa City, IA to start graduate studies at the University of Iowa.  Tapia had been in a band with Davis' older brother Matthew (check out xONLYTENBETWEENUSx, they were excellent).  When the opportunity to play music together arose, it was out of pure luck - and so, the band itself was formed around a desire to hang out as friends over the course of a summer, and work on recording music together as a way to pass the time.  It ended up being a true exploration of their mutual experimental tendencies - all of the songs were written blind, with one collaborator adding a track and the next coming in to listen and add their contribution.  What resulted was Sunshine Viper - and this TAHRC cassette captures their entire recorded output.  Well, actually: there's a rumored unfinished EP that may still see the light of day in cassette form as well...

CLEME's newest album is a masterpiece in exploration - there's a lot of new ideas that come together in interesting ways on this album, and not all of them seem planned out.  In a lot of ways, this album feels like a surprise - one that you discover along with the artist as you listen.  "Magink" kicks off the album, and you'll immediately know what I mean when you hear it.

MARRICE ANTHONY is a mastermind, and NIMBUS 3 is no exception - from beginning to end, it's consistent and real hip-hop from one of today's most prolific and talented MCs.  It's the best production he's ever put forward, and without a doubt his finest release to date.  Listen to the entire album above, and grab a cassette before they're sold out!
