Protect U- U-Udios 1 - Cassette - UU01

$ 12.00

Not so much a record in the formal sense as a clearing of house/hard drive. Protect-U (Aaron Leitko and Mike Petillo) issued their debut full-length Free USA in 2014. Since then, they've put out music together and apart as Ocobaya (1432R), Doubler (Confused House), and OV (Future Times).

U-Udios One gathers unreleased material recorded at the duo's studio over the last two and a half years. Free USA was an exercise in radical optimism -- an attempt to project utopian spirit through technology as an act of opposition. Written/jammed subsequently, these tracks are a touch more introverted and are perhaps better suited to the solo night drive than the DJ booth.

This tape is the inaugural release for U-Udios, a cassette/digital label meant to document live performances, jam sessions and collaborative works recorded at Protect-U's studio in Takoma Park, MD.
