FFFoxy Podcast #51: OSR Tapes feature



On this episode of the FFFoxy Podcast, we spoke with Zach Phillips of OSR Tapes. Started in Brattleboro, Vermont, and now based in Brooklyn, New York, OSR Tapes has issued a number of terrific releases over the past few years that veer into grey areas of leftfield pop and other unclassifiable sounds. This past fall, they put out a whopping thirteen releases at one time that span various formats and styles. In addition to running OSR, Zach has also produced a sizable body of work of his own through his various solo and collaborative projects, chief among them being Blanche Blanche Blanche. We talked with Zach about his own music, about running OSR, and about his recent decision to move all of his label & music-related activity offline. Throughout the show you’ll also hear a fairly healthy selection of tracks from the OSR back catalog. You can get detailed information about how to order OSR titles by heading over to their website. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or comments. Hope you enjoy this episode.
