The Fader blog took a break from cluing us in to next season's baseball cap trends today to break us off a chunk of knowledge about the sprawling country of audio bizarreness that is John Olson's American Tapes label. If super-limited runs of fucked-up sounds are your jam, Olson—a longtime member of Wolf Eyes—is your hookup. One thing I miss about living in Ann Arbor is the easy access to Wolf Eyes and their ideas about what music can be, or rather what can be music. One time when I was working at Kinko's, Aaron Dilloway came in to copy some covers for a super-limited Wolf Eyes single. It turned out to be composed exclusively of field recordings of the band skateboarding on tour.
