Are you old-skool? Or perhaps you just like having something to hold, and CDs bore you. Perhaps you think that this is the most fun way to enjoy your music. Whatever your reason, these tapes exist to please you. Comes in on of two colours: Dashing turquoise, or Hot-hot pink.
These are professionally recorded tapes, made in the modern age, cut to length.
Very limited quantities, and my first cassette release.
Includes unlimited streaming of Made in a Day (extended version!)
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
Tracks 1-6 and 8 were written & recorded in less than a day as part of personal challenge to see if I could write and record an EP in such a short space of time. Turns out that the answer is yes.
This album is sometimes out of time, out of pitch, and whatnot. Just relax and enjoy.
All other tracks were painstakingly written over the course of about a month or two. I can't really remember; it was a blur of tears, anger, joy and lots of digging up memories. Some I'd tried really hard to forget.
Contains plenty of unrestrained swearing.
### WARNING ###
This album draws from a lot of my experiences (both good and bad), feelings, and frustrations with the world that I grew up and live in. This was a really difficult album to write and I suspect that for a number of people it will be very difficult to listen to. I have had not the happiest, easiest, nor best of lives. With that in mind, here are a list of content warnings. Please look after yourself and your mental health.
Written, Recorded, Performed, Mixed and Mastered by Maki Yamazaki at Silvana Laboratory.

Artist, Musician & Games Developer, Maki Yamazaki probably spends too much time locked away in her studio, Silvana
Laboratory. Geek, oddball and all-round creative person with a penchant for peppermint tea, sci-fi, strong narratives and writing biographies in third person....more
