I have a new album! Duplex Cremes is a 33-track mini-CDR EP (or full-size CDR if you prefer). 19 minutes of econo jangle, noise, songs about child-rearing, failure, Tualatin, bone-boiling, selkies, capitalist peril, sadness, and snacking. HOW DO I GET A COPY? It's available on the Internet Archive for free. If you are in the US and would like a hard copy, send me something fun or inspirational, or a postcard, or something I can put on my wall, or 2 to 5 US dollars. Specify mini-CDR or full-size CDR. J. Anderson, 9616 SE 77th, Milwaukie, OR, 97222, USA.. If you live outside the US, I'll still send you a copy, but Paypal me something (celesteville@yahoo.com) for costly international shipping. MORE SHORT SONGS SOON!

There is now a career-spanning retrospective of the Tape Mountain Sound entitled Memory Excellence courtesy of our friends at Deathbomb Arc. Nearly 30 years of me doing stuff. It's also available on your favorite streaming service - search for "Memory Excellence" and look for the picture of a floppy disk with neon index card pieces. Do not be fooled by false Jake Andersons.

We've switched our hosting service to a much more frugal one (in keeping with the Tape Mountain Way) and we're in the process of rebuilding links. I'm going to be putting stuff up on my weblabel page on Internet Archive.

I'm relaunching the blog, because that's what people do in 2017, right? People are just crazy about blogs.

The Cosmic Cruncher EP is available on Red Hef Records' Bandqlamp page.

New, short, and ridiculous 4-minute "hardcore" EP Preparation Omega is on the archive page. "Hardcore" is stretching it, I guess.

You also may have missed Tualatin or the Voice of Shrillness, Faithful Perpetual, and, on Bandqlamp, the debut Cosmonox album. These and decades more are available in the archive.

Shows (all in Portland, OR unless specified)

Dr. Something (I play bass):
Sept. 28 @ Kelly's Olympian: Release show for The Transit Suite - an EP about five different TriMet transit centers! It hits the weird sweet spot between deeply sad and deeply silly. Check out the Beaverton TC single!

Cosmonox (I play Language Master): October 18 at No Fun. We're working on album number 2.

All I Feel Is Yes (I play bass and other things):
Have you checked out Overdose on Yes? Wow! I play guitar on this one.

Contact me to book a live performance.


Welcome to the new Tape Mountain! We've redesigned and rewritten everything, so hopefully it will look a little better and be a little less confusing. Please poke around the Music Archives - there is a lot there. Anything you miss from the old site? Drop me a line and let me know!

Also, we have a baby now. Email me for pictures.
