Jason Baxter – “Video Freak” (via Cairo Records)Jason Baxter is a prodigious multi-tasker. Currently, the dude divides his time between running the in-house publicity for Sub Pop sub-label Hardly Art, making the hypnagogic pop as one half of local electronics duo USF, and writing the fledgling indie comic Trip Fantastic along with illustrator Derek Charm. Recently, his job juggling has included overlapping gigs writing the all-ages column for the Stranger, doing PR for all-ages venues Cairo Gallery and the Vera Project, and managing the UW’s online Rainy Dawg Radio. Point is, the guy stays busy.His latest bit of business is “Video Freak,” a meticulously dubbed-from-VHS* mixtape of LOL’90s TV ephemera and smooth digital studio funk–“studio bumpers, sports blooper soundtracks, weird adverts and bizarro music cues”–that sounds perhaps unsurprisingly of-the-moment in these Retromaniacal times. Visit the Cairo Records site for the full description and a partial track-listing.*Also a good cheap way to add that analog tape vibe to your home recordings, a la Hieroglyphic Being.
