box set: "Burlington, VT" NNA Tapes


NNA Tapes has been documenting the avant scene for a while, with releases by Sun Circle, Caboladies and Harmonizer all under its belt. One of the label's most recent releases is also their most ambitious; an 8 cassette tape box set of Burlington, VT-based artists. Burlington, VT features "a c15 tape from each of the following artists: Greg Davis, Ryan Power, Toby Aronson, A Snake In The Garden, Chubby Wonder, tooth ache., Lawrence Welks & Our Bear To Cross, and Cosmic Matrix. Housed in a large vinyl snapcase with cardstock insert." The super eclectic comp is a testament to the creative juices continually flowing on the shores of Lake Champlain. Greg Davis's "Singing Image of Water Moon", tooth ache.'s "Eurydice" and Toby Aronson's "Picnic Point" are all exceptional tracks that speak volumes about Burlington's effervescent scene, which is always bubbling neath the surface.

Oh man, this is sick. tooth ache and ryan power are both awesome. i must complain that they overlooked nosebleed island / son of salami, who are two of my favorite burlington, vt entities. but still so awesome.
