Absolutely creepy. It swells and builds like an anxiety attack. I have been floored by every recording Oakeater has released and this cassette was one of my first exposures. It clearly comes from a very dark place and parts of it has stuck with me for a long time. I only wish I could get a chance to see them live someday. The packaging is simple and beautiful. Screen printed covers and plain black tapes with the catalog number scratched into it's surface. Limited to 100 copies with their first live performance as well. Crucial. That's the perfect word to end with.
