I’m a sucker for the handmade DIY record packaging. I know the work that goes into screen printing an assembling hundreds of records by hand. It’s a different level of dedication that goes beyond money and its when things become all about the music. Already Dead Tapes have over 40 releases to their name but Forget the Times lp “Soul Music” is the first foray into the world of vinyl for the label. At 300 copies all hand screened it is an impressive looking affair. So how is the music you ask…Well it is pretty great. Noisy, free improvisation leaning towards psych at all the right times. It is surely for adventurous listeners who can handle raw and uncompromising music. The guitar work is fantastic going from lonesome drones to spastic psychedelia and the drumming is fresh and ever changing. It’s a rewarding listen that will stand the test of time better than most records of its class.
