Maus Space

I've continually had a liking for the mystical, but it wasn't until I matured a little iota that I discovered John Maus!

So, the concept of handmade, handpressed album releases has always intrigued at least the hipster side of me. Aside from Ariel, do you guys know/listen to any other artists who do or have done releases in this fashion? If so, do you have any of them? For me, I have A few albums by masterful guitarman David CW Briggs who hand makes all of his albums (albeit in extremely limited quantities), and Nightlife (ima buy a copy of Murder Tape but shhhhh) by Oh Oh Ecstasy, the band of the fucking incredible Peter Carlovich (one of our own, no less!)

I have several from R. Stevie Moore, from before he moved his catalog to Bandcamp. It was always fun getting his CDs in the mail. He’d usually include a personal note written on junk mail, along with other random stuff.

I have several handmade CDs/tapes from Blessure Grave/Soft Kill. Even have a test pressing of Soft Kill's An Open Door LP with a custom painting for the cover! I also have R. Stevie Moore's Often and Swing And A Miss (thanks RareGoat!) and Geneva Jacuzzi's Secret Demos 2. I like her collages, I wish I owned some of her early CD-Rs.

private press records from the 60s, 70s, et al were distributed in a similar fashion, many with hand drawn covers and whatnot.
Daniel Johnston made a bunch of cassettes in the 80s with his drawings and sometimes even re-recorded the albums if he didn't have spare copies around.
As far as cdrs are concerned, I got a cd made by Macho Alex with original art which I treasure.
Not too familiar with the cdr realm, though.
