Anticipating Nowhere: Mystic Timbre Tapes Special

Hello, welcome to another Anticipating Nowhere label special, this time focussing on the wonderful sounds emanating from Mystic Timbre Tapes. A great label based in Austin, Texas, run by the equally wonderful Anthony Pandolfino.

I’m not 100% sure when I first stumbled upon Mystic Timbre but I’m pretty certain it was around the pre-release time for Automata by Fencepost (MYSTIC TIMBRE 22). The album itself was released on 12th November 2019 so I think pre-orders were up about 2 months before that – there you go, my relationship with this label is a tender 5 months. Ah, young love.

At the time of writing this blog MYSTIC TIMBRE 34 is up on Bandcamp for pre-order, ready for release on 20th April 2020 – by Abhasa. That’s 34 excellent releases, covering a wide array of sonic experiences, all dating back to the label’s inception in April 2019 with the release of Sanzuwu by Seikai.

NOTE: As of this morning the start of the above paragraph is incorrect! Flying into my mailbox earlier today was notification of the pre-release for MYSTIC TIMBRE 35, Fusty Stuffy, by TAKAHIRO MUKAI; sadly released too late to be included in this mix.

Not only does Anthony run the label, donating the profits to a couple of charities, he also carries out mastering and artwork design for any artists who want him to for their releases. On top of that he is setting up a monthly newsletter/ e-zine through the Bandcamp mailing list (Anthony has taken a step back from social media so no more twitter links folks – I need to revisit previous blogs to get rid of those dead URLs!).

If that isn’t enough, the label is also a vehicle for his many musical personas – amongst his roster you will find multiple releases from Anthony himself under various guises and genres:

Apoxupon; Bigcats; Frostower; JRPG; Lost Tales; Low Pass Killer; Nihilo Nihil; and Seikai. That’s pretty impressive going if you ask me.

So what are you waiting for? Head over the Mystic Timbre Bandcamp page now, check out the music, support Anthony and the artists where you can and sign up to be a part of the Mystic Timbre world – you won’t regret it.

Enjoy the show my friends and show Anthony some much deserved love.

Peace : Respect : Compassion
