Ball Geographie – Live at Budokan – Debut Cassette Release from Superpolar Taips

Ball Geographie - Live At Budokan

Superpolar Taips is a new DIY, not for profit tape label. They’ve just released there first two releases, the first one being ‘Live At Budokan’, by Ball Geographie. Superpolar’s ethos is to focus on unusual and ‘somewhat far out’ music. They have my seal of approval…

Ball Geographie is a music from Cologne, Germany, and produces music using old drum machines, musical toys, kalimbas etc. The result is a well-produced lo-fi sound that uses it’s technology, and technological limitations to produce a great sounding cassette.

Here’s Snyrk, with a very strange sounding vocal that makes me just a little nervous…

Tamake invokes a psuedo-disco groove with what sounds like a vintage Yamaha keyboard, with an 80’s synth overlaid with panning effects and lo-fi synths underpinning the groove. It really shouldn’t work, but it’s surprisingly catchy…

If you want to buy the cassette you can get a copy from Superpolar’s Bandcamp page. It’s very well presented, and very limited, so head on over and pick one up while you still can…
