This endearing and quite odd compilation of 27 low-fi tracks was recorded between 1983 and 1992 by sound maverick Eli Gras on cassette players and 4-track machine. The early songs and sound sketches allow a peek into the talent dome of this unsual artist who is in the game for a long time. Next to making music she is running the underground festival No No Logic in her home town Barcelona and builds her own beautiful instruments.

In addition to the regular tape edition, Gagarin Records releases a special edition of 30 wooden boxes containing the tape inside a piece of soap. According to Miss Gras, this is a new form of music archaeology related to the idea of an insect inside amber. There is a download code for the impatient but you can also wash your hands and background noises until the preserved object of desire slips out of its cocoon.

Regular tape edition: 90 copies
Special box edition with tape inside soap: 30 copies
