Sun Araw's Sun Ark Releases On VHS

Sun Araw's Sun Ark label has announced two new cassette releases: Righteous Acid (aka Alex Sarad) and Leeds based Hookworms, adding to the current cassette revival. But what comes after a cassette revival? A VHS revival, that's what.

With one on the way from Not Not Fun, Sun Ark is releasing a video in an edition of 50, described as "analogue video synthesis" by Miko Revereza. It uses material from (and is named after) Livephreaxxx!!!!, Sun Araw's cassette collaboration with Matthewdavid, released at the beginning of this year. Watch an excerpt below.
