Cassingle #6 – moduS ponY (SPT08)
I first came across Modus Pony’s music on a split tape released by Cologne’s Strategic Tape Reserve. His genre-spanning, intricate guitar/bass/synth arrangements immediately stood out (of course next to the artist behind VLK, whom we’ll welcome soon as part of this cassingle series too). Because of its complexity, “Systemmetry/2Systemmetry” could be perceived as a concept album condensed to two times 2.5 minutes. However, this time, the multi-instrumentalist reveals even more of his experimental side – bubbling analogue synths compete with free jazz guitar scales and it’s not clear who’s gonna win this gentle battle. Btw: Does your tape have auto-reverse? This is the opportunity to use it. moduS ponY resides in California, USA. -- bleed Air.

++OVERSEAS SHIPPING IN PANDEMIC (AND CHRISTMAS) TIMES++
Currently, shipping to all countries in the EU and UK works quite well, with average delivery times around 5-10 work days (within Germany usually 2 days).
However, overseas shipping to e.g. the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc. takes much longer than before. We've experienced that shipping e.g. to the US in pandemic times can take up to six or even seven weeks, the good news being that never has a shipment been lost. When in doubt, please just ask before placing an order, we'll reply asap. All purchases will be shipped asap, i.e. usually not later than 4 days after the order has been placed.
Last not least, please note that we cannot guarantee your shipments will arrive before Christmas. The comparably low international shipping costs are only possible because we ship as priority (non-tracked) mail, not as parcel (which would be way more expensive).
