It’s out there. The Distant Trains/Consistency Nature split tape celebrating the one-year anniversary of Lava Church.

Each of these gorgeous tapes comes with 2 trading cards, one of Distant Trains and one of Consistency Nature. The Distant Trains side of the tape is mostly rhythmic, beginning with the floaty, trippy “Underwater Ghost Choir”, a track you may have caught on my Soundcloud once upon a time, followed by a track made from twisted-up and looped sounds from one of the pieces on the forthcoming Explortation and finally a two-parter of straight-up jamming 4-track rock. Consistency Nature’s side is a single dissonant yet soothing and philosophical ambient noise/samples/electronics piece called “So The Dead Do Move” that really takes you along on a trip. Very cool stuff that both fits together and contrasts with the Distant Trains side.

Only 21 of this thing exist in the world, and I now have three in my possession; I might save one for myself, and then either give or trade the other two to extra special people, who exactly those might be I haven’t figured out yet, or try to sell them locally. Not sure. If you want one though, I’d first suggest getting it from the Lava Church store and investigating some of their other fine musical wares while you’re there. Have a sampling of their sounds below:
