MP3: Casino Gardens - Casino Gardens
MP3: Casino Gardens - Finding You in the Plaza

Excited by these new homey vignettes from Ohio's Casino Gardens, definitely on that Sunday afternoon in the sunroom kick with noodly guitar lines and simple melodies that glow through all the delicate tape crackle. Nice mix of Rangers and Ducktailsian pop for sure. Grip the first Casino Gardens digital release now through new imprint Beer on the Rug (real apt!) and pay a few bucks to get 6 additional jams. Cassette pre-orders will be available from next week.

Casino Gardens has also put together this sick mix which soundtracks his sandwich delivery job - tons of old faves and more obscure gems:

MP3: Casino Gardens - Rose Quartz Mix (67mb)

Most of these tracks are the kinda shit I listen to when I'm out delivering sandwiches... Have you ever read the book Snow Crash? It's about this guy who delivers pizza for the Mafia in this futuristic world full of addictive virus drugs and guitars and virtual reality internet. Oh and the US basically sold itself out to corporate interests. I guess when I'm delivering I kinda imagine myself as the main dude from that book out racing against the clock to stay on good terms with the Mafia and hacking metaverses and being really adventurous and meeting exciting skater bandits even though in reality I'm just smoking and listening to these songs. Oh, and he titled that book based on a moment when his computer "wrote gibberish into the bitmap." Cool, yeah?
