Jay Hodgson When I say this record reached out from my tiny iPhone and grabbed my medulla oblangata, squeezed it until hyper-lysergic goo spritzed across the room, I am engaging in hyperbole. When I say this album is the best beat tape I’ve heard in years, I am spitting facts. Love love love!! Favorite track: Follow The Light.

YallDontHearMe Incredible. The richness and depth of this release is going to be under appreciated. This is not for streaming, buy this and take the time to hear it fully.

Evan This album has been a cornerstone for as long as I can remember. Classic example of a solid album from start to finish. Everyone should own this. Favorite track: Unknown.

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Only 250 copies pressed. 150 available on Bandcamp. 2LP black vinyl with full color gate-fold jacket. Includes stickers.

    Although it's not his first release, Controller 7's Left Handed Straw functions as a debut; a self-described "collection of soon to be lost beats and records." The album was constructed as a pastiche that compiled the artist's own production work and the world he was living in.

    Composed using an Akai MPC2000, two Technics 1200s, vinyl records, and a 4-track, LHS is a continuous journey with a singular vision and sound. The end product is a collage of heavy drums, quirky interludes, street busker sax solos, wind chimes, and disconnected conversations.

    This is the first time Left Handed Straw has been released in its entirety on vinyl. The Needle to the Groove pressing features the classic cover from the original release, but also has an updated back cover with an expansive gatefold sleeve that serves as a time capsule for the project, featuring the MPC2000 and floppy disks that the album was made on.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Left Handed Straw via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
