Review of Patrizia Oliva – Numen on Continuo’s Documents.
Copies of the second edition are still available at the staalplaat shop in Berlin, also for mailorders. Once those sell out, I will need to produce a third edition.

“Oliva takes you on quite a fascinating ride……Great tape in the usual handmade Staaltape fashion.” says FdW in Vital Weekly
“In questi casi il prezzo per copia dovrebbe lievitare al di sopra degli 80 €.” says cassettophobian in sands-zine
“Ganz grosses Kino,” Thomas Neumann in Hörerlebnis 097 (physical copy).
Side A, sprayed on the banks of the River Vistula in Warsaw, with the help of Anna Wóstovich.
“Valerie I’d like to release a tape of your works on staaltape” – “Great.” somehow didn’t work out. So one day while going through her songs for a far away future conceptual release for staaltape, I got the idea to surprise her with a selection I made. She gave me carte blanche to go on as I thought was right.
The result is that this is not a tape by Valerie, but a tape by me, for which I used her songs and other appearances. I compiled and structured it and in doing so I created a portrait of Valerie Kuehne. Hence, an audiozine, says the editor.
I won’t make a teaser for this album. I even hesitate to publish the song titles. It would spoil too much of your pleasure. You can pre-order directly from Valerie, or from me. There are 13 copies available.
You can find the complete info on this page.

Slow Slow Loris is the Berlin based duo formed by Angela Yeowell and Robert Heim. Their tape will be called ‘From Monster till Mourning.’
I have known Angie for a couple of years now, even did some performances with her, but I always had a feeling there was something lacking.
Now I know. It was Robert’s overwhelming at times primordial sonic presence that put Angie’s vocal strangeness in perspective.
Here’s 45 minutes of songs and soundtracks that by times are absolutely sensational.
Rollng Stone magazine would define it the rebirth of rock ‘n’ roll, if only they would know.
I define it a glorious moment for staaltape.
Release date will be announced soon.
