A complimentary collection from the forces of the Whitehaus third floor come together for a tape to celebrate their Summer 2012 Magic Meal Tour. Con Tex explores the outer limits of the inner cosmos through the medium of understated songwriting experiments on Nu Magik, while Dinners’ 10-Course Meal is a longform experiment in the scientific possibilities of sound divided into smaller snacks to satisfy your audiodietary needs.
Released on cassette with artwork designed by Dinners and Con Tex and screenprinted by Jess Robinson. (Edition of 50)

Remember that time you were driving on the highway, and the highway was right next to the ocean, and you rolled the windows down and a swaft of salty air curled around your face, and you took a deep breath and thought, “Yeah the ocean smells great no matter the season,” and there were sea birds and turtles all along the side of the highway, dancing in the corner of your eye and stopping every time you looked directly at them ? Yeah. This song is like that. Come see Jimmy the Scientist do it live at Spectacle on 2/11.
I can no longer prolong the greatest moment of my life. I cannot afford to be afraid of the long silence. Of the after after. The people that populate my bedroom have become too real. My option is every door, every sun and mountain of night. Our options are in people. Honest voices are doors. I have stopped trying to control the narrative. To prescribe the reality of self. Not sleep until ending. Not sleep until climax. I am awake now. I am awake now. I will stop trying to wake up and I will walk out the door and I will see in a way that listens. This moment will be a kingdom of yes simply in the naming. It was always a choice. It was always a way of seeing. I am in Paradise.
