As Bonding Tapes’ first outing, Quality Time Vol. 1 combines all of the qualities that the label seeks to infuse into all of its projects; diversity of style, adventurous narrative, a cohesive sense of style and a sense of ignoring boundaries. This album sets out to develop a concept that unites the distinct musical personalities of all artists involved.
We are proud of this project. Quality Time reflects everything we’re trying to accomplish with the label. We experiment with form and composition, without ever feeling self-indulgent, and there is a lot of attention paid to the aesthetic quality and narrative.
Bonding Tapes is a community of artists, designers, and friends. We form bonds and friendships with other collectives and artists to share music and information around the internets. We do this because we care.
