Ian Kovac Jr Jr. :: You Know It When You Feel It (OSR Tapes) CASSETTE

$7.50 CAD
From the OSR Tapes Website:
I was bored of the scene // when I was only seventeen // do you know what I mean ?
it's like a classroom from inside a dream
     ["Better Without It"]
like the other members of his recently-former group Guerilla Toss (he served his tenure 
on the flamin' Sixtrak , x-tendo technique galore) , Ian marinated his (in his case ,
double bass) chops in that slurry of woodshed rigor & (aesthetic) student resistance
they enculture over at the New England Conservatory in fair Boston-town (Ian himself
studied jazz at the U of Vermont but has been swimming in the NEC alumni network) . 
of course this tape is a far cry from the Toss , the Conservatory or anything else , so please
excuse me for the violence of venturing a contextualization for this original 4-track
music . some songs could be described as New Wave w/ gestural melody ("Camera") , some
are in possession of the brand of harmonic thickness & melodic travel my mind associates
with C. Weisman ("Just A Rock" , "Flypaper") , & some are just plain out there .
Ian is a magnanimous & focused musician & this tape is no doubt the tip of an iceberg
OSR can only hope will sink the USS Art Culture once and for all , in one fell swoop
even acclimating its spiritually emaciated inhabitants to aquatic respiration and
reverence for the mystical , sonorous behemoths that encircle all those ready to "go
deep" into their art in a contemporary nautical ballet I like to call "real freedom" .
31 minutes , art by Ian Kovac Jr Jr & Christina Schneider
