Mousecop — C∴A∴V∴E∴ Fare Thee Well I & II

CAVEFTW was recorded in April 2014 at the Rubber City Noise Center for Audio/Visual Exploration (RCNCAVE) in Akron, Ohio right before the esteemed DIY space shut down. Finally released in December 2018 — CAVE Fare Thee Well finds the Mousecop duo on a weird trip elegizing HQ through voice, objects, guitar, electronics, and synthesizers that float above an uncanny valley, while below — in scattered spectral pubs that appear and disappear like mirage — mysterious mutants and cunning cyborgs drink pints of polychromatic potion alongside a rotating cast of rogue fae-folk, elven ne'er-do-wells, and shapeshifting subhumans conspiring for sonic revolt or semblance thereof. Mousecop is the bicoastal dyad of Akron's Joshua Maxon Novak (Faangface, Actual Form, Stopped Clock, The Architect's Wife, Griefhound, etc.) & Oakland-based J. Curtis Brown Jr. (Black Unicorn, Baingan Bharta, Eucarya, Map Collection, Peanut Twins, Cane Swords, blckdth, Wyld Stallyns, Dennis Franz Kafka, etc.) Presented as a limited edition cassettes tape, mastered to tape by Jeff 'Fej' France and professionally duplicated and imprinted.
