Positive Island

Released earlier this month in the huge outpouring of cassettes from Sunup Recordings, Lazy Arrows' debut album Positive Island is a near perfect abstract rendering of those things; a vaguely tropical rhythm following a diffuse melody and some happy beats into the sunset. Even the primitive cover art exhorts listeners to appreciate the music more for the states it generates and less as an object unto itself. I bought a copy and if you do, it'll be just the same, arriving "in [a] sturdy plastic case with full-color artwork, liner notes, etc... painstakingly pasted, re-sized, cropped and rotated 90 degrees using Windows Paint", as the label describes it. Well worth the $4.
