Mousecop — CAVE Fare Thee Well I & II
This album was recorded in April 2014 at the Rubber City Noise Center for Audio/Visual Exploration (RCNCAVE) in Akron, Ohio right before the space shut down. Finally released at the end of 2018 — CAVE Fare Thee Well finds the Mousecop duo on a weird trip elegizing HQ through voice, objects, guitar, electronics, and synthesizers that float above an uncanny valley while below — in scattered spectral pubs that appear and disappear like mirage — mysterious mutants and cunning cyborgs drink pints of polychromatic potions alongside a rotating cast of rogue fae-folk, elven ne'er-do-wells, and shapeshifting subhumans conspiring for sonic revolt or semblance thereof.
Mousecop is the bicoastal dyad of Akron's Joshua Maxon Novak (Faangface, Actual Form, Stopped Clock, The Architect's Wife, Griefhound, etc.) & Oakland-based J. Curtis Brown Jr. (Black Unicorn, Map Collection, Baingan Bharta, eucarya, Peanut Twins, Cane Swords, blckdth, Wyld Stallyns, Dennis Franz Kafka, etc.)
Presented as a limited edition c45 cassette, mastered to tape by Jeff ‘Fej’ France then professionally duplicated and imprinted for your pleasure.
