“The Mouth is the Most Promising” by Larry Wish & His Guys

Limited run of 100 high-bias chrome cassettes

Bumpy No. 1 is “The Mouth is the Most Promising” by Larry Wish & His Guys. We’ve remastered and reissued the album on high-bias chrome cassette tape for this endearing & unique work. Originally released in 2012, the group explores frenetic play, bizarre humor, & melodramatic emotion on their sophomoric album. This time around, they take themes explored on their first release to even loftier levels of the intense & absurd. Bumpy is excited to have “The Mouth is the Most Promising” as the very first in our catalogue.

“Kiosk” by Used Condo

Limited run of 100 high-bias chrome cassettes


Bumpy No. 2 is a truly bizarre work indeed. “Kiosk” by Used Condo is the soundtrack to a fictional video game of the same name. In “Kiosk”, one explores an abandoned shopping mall that happens to be under the duress of demonic oppression. The soundtrack reflects the overwhelming nature of this concept as a constantly swirling tapestry of popular music samples, tape loops, electronic gurgles, and plenty of other sounds that never seem to sit still. We are proud to offer “Kiosk” on high-bias chrome cassettes for optimum quality listening.

“Humanoid Humanoid Humanoid Humanoid, Four Humanoids” by mangoSleeves

Limited run of 100 high-bias chrome cassettes

Bumpy No 3. is “Humanoid Humanoid Humanoid Humanoid, Four Humanoids” by mangoSleeves. “Four Humanoids” is a progressive bedroom pop album with a big range. On one end, there are light moments that breathe easy in simple and lulling melody. On the other end, there are dark moments of intensity where one is left wondering if there is light at the end of the tunnel. There is a recurring theme of searching on this final mangoSleeves album; searching for home, love, & identity. We are excited to have found this special gem, and are proud to present it on high-bias chrome cassettes to you.
