  • thought i'd put up a package for those completely new to the label, or have been missing out for a while: the 'this is what we have left' offers all the items we have left in stock for a decent discount. For now: you'll get 3 lps and 2 cds for 55 euro instead of 74. . Good deal, no? In case we run out of one (or more) of these releases, we'll adjust content and price of the package. when new releases are available, we'll add these. simple as that.

    right now, the parcel consists of:

    soccer Committee: ♥ / Lamb (lp, morc 88)
    Luster: Luster (lp, morc 85, 4th pressing)
    Roxane Métayer: Éclipse des ocelles (lp, morc 83 - repress on red vinyl)
    R.O.T.: Klein Eiland (cd, morc 79)
    Jessica Bailiff: Old things (cd, morc 45)

    (as always: you can also order via morctapes.com and you'll save a bit on shipping as well!)

This record is a collection of rare and unreleased material, mostly recorded between the release of her second and third album. As such, it can be seen as the missing link between the rather droney second record, and the starker Jessica Bailiff record. This is more than ,,just’’ a collection of older material: this records explains why it took her so long to finish her third record: she was also working on these gems which form a regular full length on their own.

Songs like Your sounds make patterns in my eyes or Maybe tomorrow have the familiar sound of her first records, but already hint in the direction of the more folky current sound. Whereas a song like Let time breathe definitely is an example of her more direct approach, it still echoes her freeform guitarsongs. The best of two worlds.

Most of the songs were recorded by Jessica at home. Jesse Edwards, with whom she also records as the duo Northern song dynasty, plays on two songs. Crush was recorded by Alan Sparhawk (of Low), who also plays electric 12-string guitar on that track.
