To create this series, Polyvinyl sent a single Tascam 4-track cassette recorder to the first artist, who recorded two tracks on tape before sending it off to the next artist to use, resulting in a home-made succession of records, all captured on the same device, which had traveled over 20 thousand miles by the end of its journey. This series is limited to 500 subscriptions, so sign up now and lock down a dozen new and already rare pressings to add to your wax collection.
