Joe Nora - Fell Into The Pool


Catalog: INNER106
Format: Digital // Tape Cassette 

//10 track album on White Cassette Tapes. 100 copies worldwide.
Real time recordings on High Bias Chrome Tape.

Feel the loose rhythms, wet drums and thick, marshy bass lines ferried by radiant yet sparse guitar accompaniment to complete a masterful collection of beats  in Joe Nora’s “Fell Into The Pool”.  Ten slippery songs that playfully capture the baptismal rebirth of emerging from water into the sun scorched summer. Without a doubt Joe Nora fell into the pool and surfaced with this EP in hand. Come closer to the edge to dive in and refresh.
