    Spool’s Out is back from a summer of semi-lockdown awkwardness and lonesome walkman listens with a beautiful show featuring a live session from vocal looping master and dancer Lauren Doss. The London-based artist’s debut tape Voices dropped earlier this year, embellishing simple layers of voice with a rare sense of physicality and emotional decadence. This live session recorded during the lockdown period is an incredible example of Lauren’s potent practice.

    Also featured this week – Poland’s WIDT stretch out into new projects, plus some prime cuts of 2020 hip-hop and ambience.

    Recorded direct to tape at home an mixed using two Tascam Porta02, one Technics RS-4 and one Technics RS-B505, this week’s music comprises a big fat overlapping mix of sounds from deep in the cassette-o-sphere. What better time to deploy four tape players in your mixing setup than during a global pandemic? Behind the controls is none other than Fe203, a Format Junkie, Analogue Enthusiast, and Spool’s Out Radio Alumnus.

    This week's episode was planned as a socialist celebration with London-based oddballs, I Know I'm An Alien. Now though, we find ourselves in lockdown and quarantine, relying on the workers who risk not socially distancing themselves, and are manning the decks at supermarkets the world over. This episode of music released on tape is dedicated solely to them.

    Featuring an exclusive 'TAPE MANIFESTO' by I Know I'm An Alien

    London duo Padang Food Tigers, aka Spencer Grady and Stephen Lewis, released Wake Up, Mr Pancake on tape last year, a drifting album of wispy Americana instrumentals. This week, they've put together a delicate mix of influences and sounds to capture the vibe of their beautiful world. Sit back on the porch rockin' chair and feel good.

    Welcome to a scrapbook of found tape sounds documented on a blog from back in the 2010s called Tape Findings: Found Home Recordings, And Other Cassette Deck Oddities. Here comes a mish mash of American tape junk from the late-20th century, including shopping mall karaoke booth recordings, kids playing with their tape decks, rambling raps, salesmen, voicemail recordings – it’s all there. What a strange time. Just like today. There's real beauty in this kind of warped analogue self-documentation; the ancestor to today's crystalline selfies. Both times seem to scream a hope and a desire simply to be seen, heard, and acknowledged.

    For a year when the mainstream failed to be defined by any major new musical voices, the importance of the global underground of oddballs mailing tapes to each other felt particularly important. This month's show is a look back on the year, with a few choice cuts from tape I found myself replaying and replaying, from I Jahbar's fiery mixtape of wild dancehall, to Byron Westbrook's epic synth wig outs, to Rojin Sharafi and YATTA's unique indefinable compositions, and much else. Original sounds continue to emerge from the tape-released music scene – like primordial live first crawling from the oceans.
