Early Languis Recordings Released by Discotheque Records… on Cassette


We’re glad to pass along word of the first ever release of the earliest recordings from LA’s own Languis. Discotheque Records is issuing an 18-track collection called First Days on old fashioned warm, hissy cassette tape in a limited edition of 100 tapes. Admittedly the tape seems more like a romantic novelty and art piece–thankfully it also comes with a full digital download complete with an additional half-dozen tunes as a bonus.

From the press notes:

Recorded between 1996 and 1997 in Altadena, CA but seeing the light of day for the first time, “First Days” is the first collection of songs recorded by Alejandro Cohen and Marcos Chloca under the name Languis. Recorded with a Tascam Portastudio, Casio HT-700, Kawai K-1r, a borrowed guitar, and a telephone microphone, “First Days” takes your ears on a trip through both abstract and melodic songs and experiments.

Here are a couple of tracks from the set streaming over at BandCamp.com:
