Paradise of Bachelors is preparing two upcoming releases, which are closely related both to each other and to the blackwater swamps of Southeastern North Carolina, though we can’t divulge any details at the moment. Suffice it to say that we anticipate an autumn release and that the project involves listening to and transferring miles of never-released 1/4″ tape, an endeavor eased by the recently acquired Otari Magnetic Orator¬†Machine (O, MOM) pictured above. The Bachelors have begun planting these 40-year old oxide seeds, and we shall see what they yield. Heavy Music, in the immortal words of Bob Seger.

To satiate you in the meantime, please enjoy the following PoB Soundsystem live DJ mixes.
