There’s been some questions…”It’s been two months since the last MurkCast, where’s the next episode? What’s Moss Tapes doing?? Does Joe ever sleep???”
Just because you’re not getting your free podcast doesn’t mean we aren’t swamped in a musical mire. There’s been a few more Meester sightings around town, and I assure you, we are doing our best to get him back to us. In the meantime, we’re releasing a few albums to hopefully get his attention. The last two months have been spent gathering FOUR NEW Meester Magpie albums recorded over the past four years. While proper release shows are in the future, these items will be available for early purchase at Token: A Night of Local Zines, Music, and Video Games.
Token is a night of local zines, music, and video games aimed at showcasing passionate visual artists, musicians and creators in the Chicago area. Exhibitors will have tables selling local zines, comics, prints, buttons, tapes, cd’s, records, bags, toys, and t-shirts. All this can be found Wednesday, September 30th 6PM-11PM @ The Emporium Logan Square, 2363 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647.
Follow Moss Tapes on Facebook, Instagram, and Etsy for up to date news on Tapes, Discs, Apparel (Whoa! Really?) and Video Games as the date approaches. Hope to see you there!

First album by Meester Magpie & Thee Murder of Crows now available on BANDCAMP and ETSY for purchase, physically and digitally. Only three left from the first batch, more on the way. If you haven't heard the ensemble version of MM, SPECIAL FORMULA is a clear distillation of the set they were performing before a five month break, and only performed twice. Hear for yourself what's been described as, "A good trip to the beach while being abducted by aliens during a tornado.”

Digging through the digital junkyard today and found an unreleased Meester Magpie song. It seems to be a harsher rework of the theme Joseph Blanski brought to the FN Midwest HQ Packing Room Wall time lapse video. It’s titled Gray Death, after a kitten who passed before its eyes even opened. Little Graylien Explorer, this goes out for you!

We here at Moss Tapes are pleased to inform you that your MurkCast host, Joseph Blanski, has provided his musical talents to a Field Notes time lapse video. Over the past year, more than a few of their pocket memobooks has been filled with inventory, doodles, and podcast ideas. We're more than happy to kick out the jamz and we hope you enjoy the video. Grab some notebooks while you're at it, they're super handy and MOSS APPROVED!
