Another absolute gem from Trunk, building on the ground covered by their mind-bending release from 2017, "Tapes 1" - delving into the sprawling musical archive of the cult Dutch film director, Frans Zwartjes - comes "Tapes 2". Taking this incredible sonic journey toward new depths, the LP provides a missing link within the history of the avant-garde, dramatically expanding the available perceptions of Zwartjes’ crucial musical output, while alluding to so much more.

**Restocked, last copies.** Incredible follow-up to the sold-out Tapes 1, this vinyl continuation takes you deeper into the sublime world of the cult Dutch director Frans Zwartjes' soundtrack tape archive; dream-like, disjointed, disturbing, peculiar, sexy, unexpected, and totally unique. Frans Zwartjes is famous for his art-house films. A Dutch underground auteur, his prolific output dates from 1968. A unique talent, Zwartjes produced, directed, and edited his own films, but more importantly he created and improvised the soundtracks too. Zwartjes and his large body of work is only now being recognized by a wider, more international crowd with screenings at the NFT and other important art-house cinemas across the world. The recordings on Tapes 2 were mixed directly from the Zwartjes soundtrack tape archive. They were assembled directly and in real time by Zwartjes archivist Stanley Schtinter and have never been issued before. The music and sound have been put together as two long, seamless sequences; they are dreamlike, unsettling, peculiar, plugged-in, prescient, and unlike any other soundtrack you have heard. All cues mastered and sequenced by Jon Brooks, AKA The Advisory Circle. Includes download.
