It's 2011 and the days are days of boredom, nuclear horror and Arab Spring, and the outrageously charming duo Elle P. & Iftah have found their way to the studio once again, planning nothing else than pure simplification of element and method, in other words, to have fun with a light-hearted plan to record some songs using nothing more than their newly purchased 1989- 8-track cassette recorder, 3 synths, 2 drum machines, spontaneous first-take-bullets and some explosive poetry shots. Raw plan, raw power – things get pretty and serious by just pushing 'record, play & sing'. 12 days later they have captured 12 songs on tape. Through limitations to old school means they have discovered new musical discipline and freedom strong enough to leave behind massive layers of sounds and countless hours of editing. The intentional choice of recording and releasing Mrs. Oscillator & Her Pocket Calculator on cassette tape results from LP&I's fascination for dead mediums. Unlike digital alternatives, the cassette looks forward to a specific change of character as it degrades with use and time. Surprisingly enough the outcome does not sound retro. It's contemporary.
