Dear Concerned Employees will be released on 15. December 2018

At the end of the month October 2018 employees of the Duke Energy Building noticed a strange package. They were concerned about the content. It could be a dangerous packet. They called the police.

Read about it here

I sent a request to the artists that already contributed to the Kylie tapes:

My idea is to release a one copy only tape with your contributions.
(say 5 minutes max.)
You are free to send in what ever you like.
The idea, for me, is to comfort the concerned employees,
and give some insight in our approach to the medium ‘cassette.’
 
You can consider the tape that I will send as a tape in an answering machine.
The employee hits play, and listens to the messages.
Your contribution can be spoken word or a copied fragment of a relax tape,
the muzak you hear when you are put on hold, or something of your own creation.
 
I will pack and send the copy to
Concerned Employees
Duke Energy building 
550 S Tryon St, Charlotte, 
NC 28202, 
USA
I sent this copy

But the tracks that the artists contributed were too good to keep them for a one-copy-release.
Dear Concerned Employees is a c46, scheduled to be released on December 15, 2018.
You can preorder it now.
Tracks by Taco Bong, Kylie Minogue, KK, St_St, Sean Jason, Mrs. Mangle, El Tonto Bing Bang, The New Plastic People, Kim Wild 93
Pre-order it at the staaltape shop.
If you get your copy from Bandcamp, you will receive two digital-only bonus tracks

 

Take Care while ordering, buy the Cassette, not the digital album.
Bandcamp says: *The European Union requires us to charge Value Added Tax (VAT) on digital goods sold to buyers located within the EU. We collected and will remit an additional €2.40 for this sale, which represents the buyer’s local VAT rate (20% for United Kingdom).

Midori Hirano/Kris Limbach – The Last Day on Earth, reviewed by Ryan Masteller

Ryan Masteller listens to the tape while the weather reports announce the arrival of a terrifying tornado. He eventually has to evacuate his house on the Florida coast, but he first writes, I’m just a ghoul willing these keys to type themselves with my mind (or my ectoplasm!) in the hope that someone will read this and seek out this tape before it’s too late, this tape that will then assist them in their passing into the great beyond, whatever comes after Earth.
