LPs and CDs from Hometapes Records (Pattern Is Movement, Cyne, Nick Butcher, Shedding and more) [$11.00-$17.00]

Hometapes Records out of Portland specializes in smart indie rock and has released quite a few critically acclaimed releases in its young history, including 2008’s Pattern Is Movement release that we deemed worthy of an 8. For the discriminating hipster/vinylphile, Hometapes has released a number of gorgeous limited edition vinyl albums with numbered album art and other special features. Shedding’s self-titled LP comes in light green vinyl with three art inserts and a uniquely numbered fold-out cover. The aforementioned Pattern is Movement LP includes a digital download of the record packed with bonus features as well as a number of printed photographs. Even the CD version includes a little batch of fold-out photos. Nick Butcher’s recent Bee Removal album is packaged as a white vinyl release with hand-screened cover art. Cyne’s erudite backpack hip-hop is also available on a double LP as well as CD. These little touches speak to a strong commitment to artfulness across mediums. In an era of ever more disposable culture, Hometapes works hard to make things meant to save and treasure.
