GEM JONES – ‘SYMPHONY IN P’ C30 (CGIF-004) $4.20
Gem Jones unleashes a fresh set of liquid groove on ‘Symphony in P’. Music that is polished and on point in its composition, but with enough thrash and imperfection to still feel human in its execution. Never a wasted guitar solo and never a blown synth tone, nothing but the crucial sleaze needed to accomplish the uproarious, but well maintained, and respectable party atmosphere that will never get too sloppy, but will still freak out any and all narcs. It’s ultimately about love, but ultimately about respect too. Recorded straight to 4 track in late 2010 in Iowa City all by his lonesome. 100 copies.
RUN DMT/TRACEY TRANCE split C30 (CGIF-006) $4.20
is the second tape in CGIFRIDAY’S ongoing split series. This release also fulfills an unspoken promise between the two wanderers to meet one another on the astral plane. Tracey Trance and Run DMT’s material complements one another to a wildly geosynchronous level considering they have never met or spoken. Come along with Tracey Trance on some “Little Retreats” and be whisked far away from the late-night televised rerun world that you’ve been trapped in all winter. Run DMT picks you up along the side of the dusty path with promises of new episodes of X-Files to be played in your dreams. Seriously. 100 copies.
