Inspired by a bout of nostalgia, Jan Strach dove into his archive of a few dozens cassette tapes full of songs recorded between ages of 16-20. After digging through a few hundred tunes, he selected the most interesting to present to you, dear listeners. From regular songs with acoustic guitar in the style of early poj.wlkp, through experiments with two cassette players, casio-created ambient, sampled rock tunes and mandolin instrumentals, Jan Strach shows creations, in perspective maybe sometimes naive, but always honest, authentic and melodically interesting.

KAYAKA is an experimental/ noise/ electronica composer, live performer, born in Tokyo, based in Europe (London, Berlin). She plays electronic and acoustic (bass clarinet, drums, bass guitar, gadgets …etc.) and has a unique, self-taught style of recording and composing. Her music is sometimes called “sonic surrealism”, mixed with those living-life-noise. Live sets are mostly improvised and different each time and she also collaborates with many artists from all around the world. She is a curator of an independent label, Pighole Records since 2007, where she exposes some of her releases and others’ experimental music containing some daily things freely holding onto strong and individual concepts.
This album was made in Ecuador in 2013. As I camped and walked through Amazon jungle with little belongings and thought of being away from human territory. Routine sound there was completely different from those which I was used to hear in my city life. You might need more of your concentration, but you are able to create anything you like in the field of wildness.
Track 6 “colibri” consists of recording I made in Mindo, Ecuador. It is a sound of humming birds. Quite many of them passing and stopping by a recorder I placed next to feeders. – They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings, which sometimes sounds like bees or other insects. A group of hummingbirds is called a “choir.”- Indeed, powerful vibration sound they have considering their tiny bodies.
“He who has cast off the world has linked it to yellow dust
Your body is like unto a wound, and you are like unto a madman.
This entire world is a yellow arrow which has pierced you through
The yellow arrow is the train on which you ride towards a ruined bridge” – Victor Pelevin “The Yellow Arrow”00:00 Aram Saroyan – Crickets [recorded in the wind-off grooves of side two] (1965)
