We are fans of Yerevan Tapes at EB – mainly because they release some very pleasing on the ear compositions but also because all their release are also free to download. Instead of having to seek out physical cassettes of the music – which we sometimes do, but find the pleasingly aesthetics are tempered by the annoyance of obtaining cassettes that have been pressed in tiny quantities and then finding the cable for the tape player. With their second release abotu to drop we though we should share some for a tape by Gianni Giublena Rosacroce called La piramide di sangue. It’s pretty stunning – think Arabic drones, and middle eastern minimalism that is highly musical and stoner hypnotic. You can get it right below. Enjoy.

Check out ‘Mile High’ below;
