Super-limited cassette version of Raphi Gottesman's sophomore full length. Only 20 of these were made, and we managed to snag a few of them straight from the source (waddup Michna!). If mellow, introspective acoustics is your thing (or if you've ever owned a Jandek album), you need this in your life. From Rellman Enterprises: Fresh off scoring for the Emmy Nominated documentary The City Dark, Raphi Gottesman returns with his Sophomore LP, Virtual Access. Since 2006, Raphi Gottesman has become a staple player in the Bay Area Indie/Rock/Folk/Experimental/Ambient scene. As a drummer, he has toured and performed in a wide range of bands including Odawas (Jagjaguwar), The Black Swans (Misra), Sonny and The Sunsets (Polyvinyl), The Fresh & Onlys (Captured Tracks, Mexican Summer), Fishermen Three, A Carnival of Hours, and Jack Lewis' Awkward Energy. In 2012 he contributed 2 new songs to the Seattle­-based cassette only compilation Days Without End. While heavily influenced by Jandek and Richard Buckner, Virtual Access comes off as a record only Mr. Gottesman could make. Individually numbered edition of 20 with free download code included.
