so glad to be finally able to announce that So I Buried Records will release a split album by Grimm Grimm, a london-based acid-folk solo project by Koichi Yamanoha (ex. Screaming Tea Party), and TAPERS, an experimental electro duo formed by Gustav Rye and Simon Kinch, on 25th may 2014. it's only limited to 100 copies.

the split's launch party will be held at Cafe Oto in london on the album's release date.

you can taste the split from the links below:

Grimm Grimm

Grimm Grimm is the acid-folk solo project Koichi Yamanoha, a london-based tokyo native and former 1/3 of cult psychedelic punks Screaming Tea Party. with Yamanoha as the lynch pin, Grimm Grimm features a shifting line-up of collaborators that includes Le Volume Corbe and members of Chrome Hoof, Let's Wrestle and fellow japanese ex-pats Bo Ningen. packed with hooks, the Grimm Grimm sound mixes the melancholic beauty and noise of Nico, the soundscapes of Eno and the melodies of The Beatles with baroque flourishes and a passing nod the otherworldly pop sensibility of Joe Meek.
Grimm Grimm are regular performers at Myths Of The Far Future (the east London psych-folk night run by Yamanoha).


TAPERS are an experimental duo, formed in 2012 in london by Gustav Rye and Simon Kinch. as each member's background is different - Gustav studying philosophy before training as a sound engineer, Simon training as a classical composer - their music is difficult to categorise, containing elements of contemporary classical music, electro and reggae. despite only recently forming, one of their songs, Breath 1, was chosen as "Track of the Day" by The 405, one of the biggest british independent music websites, in september 2013.
