A Few Of Our Releases…
Wild lo-fi, garage, post-punk and synth pop radar blips from The Blessed Cassettes (formerly known as The Litter) of Houston, TX.
The sole synth drone/post-rock/lo-fi offering from the legendary, now-disbanded duo of disgruntled former mattress salesmen.
Seven new recordings from Houston’s own shambolic lo-fi provocateurs, plus a reissue of their explosively nervous debut single.
Reverse Engine, Mi Abuela Es Jazzista, and Soundz From Nowhere bring you an epic, double-disc tribute to lo-fi/experimental pop greats the Swirlies.
An Abridged History…
Reverse Engine began in 2000 as a collective focused on home recording and super 8 filmmaking. The project morphed into a record label releasing limited edition CD-Rs by 2001. RER embraced Creative Commons licensing with a switch to the netlabel format in 2006.
In 2009, I found a dusty mini-DV tape with an unfinished Reverse Engine documentary from 2001, “Home Recorders’ Hypnosis League”. I’ve added it here for posterity.
