Wizard Of- Face/Skeleton (2014)
Face/ Skeleton consists of two multi-part tracks, one for each cassette side. The tracks within each side utilize similar samples and emphasize a mutating repetition within each other. Initially, I preferred "Face", but now I am on the fence. Overall, "Face I" and "Face II" are a great opener, but by "Face III" things seem a little stagnate, at least for that track. With Skeleton though, the samples really benefit from the time and growth, making for a stronger overall side (also, the vocal samples reminded me of Blockhead at times).
I was very surprised to find out that this was a cassette release. Maybe it is because when I think of cassettes I think of vaporwave, drone, and all around less accessible music, I'm not sure. This album is something that should be pressed though, as it definitely left a good impression on me.
While the cassette is all sold out now, you can still listen to the album and buy a digital copy Here. Also, click Here to check out the Wizards Of bandcamp.
Finally, the album can be downloaded with This.
