This episode brings the Drifter’s documentary-style series on the history of Home Recording to a close for now…🍏 The sheer amount of info in this one could’ve easily gone into a 300 page book, given that the ‘lo-fi’-era has barely been acknowledged as existing as a legitimate form of expression at all. As home-recording has historically only been seen as a stepping stone towards more traditional forms of music industry careerism, Emil tries to re-frame the impulse and phenomenon as its own real and beautiful sub-world of vital documentation in itself.

 Whereas the previous episode “The Dawn of Home Recording” examines the impulse of Les Paul’s initial invention of the overdub, this cast investigates what happens when you hand that technology over to tomorrow’s freaks to make their own private, warped fantasies undeniably real.
