Since 2017 the team of 1 Hand Clapping Record has been producing and creating unique audio cassette and vinyl content.
I HATE / LOVE LA
I HATE / LOVE LA, a tape to pop in as you drive home from your cruddy assisting job, or that 16 hour thank-less day on set, or maybe that restaurant gig as you ponder if any of those casting directors will get back to you. It's not all doom and gloom though, both sides together will take you on the mythological journey through Tragedy bursting forth into Comedy. So cheer up, maybe that casting director will get back you, and at least you got paid double overtime, or hey -- it beats real work! If you don't live in LA, feel free to sub-in whatever is bugging you.
IN THE WEEDS
In the Weeds is a tribute to Mort Garson’s seminal album Plantasia: warm earth music for plants... and the people who love them — a cult classic of synthesizer experimentation and new-age thinking. Over the course of this ten-song record, I attempt to evoke the spirit of Garson’s work with a bent toward the psychoactive: In the Weeds is music for marijuana plants... and the people who love them.
Travel to the faraway land of 1970s-1980s european discotheques where colors clashed, leather was our friend, and pants were... unusual. Give this one a spin to relive the glory days - or be thankful that you missed them!
Sip some wine and set up the easel for a night of music to create and paint by. Abstract ditties and soundscapes to help you unlock your inner Bob Ross. Let the music guide you and unlock the dark and beautiful art that's been hiding in your brain folds.
JOHNNY, REMEMBER ME
In-house curator and creative Mike Perry:
"The tape is a mix of teen tragedy songs; a popular pop mix with songs ranging from the late 50’s to the early 70’s. These songs deal with teen death or a dead lover. These became especially popular with the rise of car culture in the late 50’s/early 60’s, hence why most songs are about teens getting destroyed in car wrecks. Through this mix, I tried to cover all bases from teenage cremation, surfing accidents, plane crashes etc..."

JOHNNY PEMBERTON: RECORDED FOR QUALITY ASSURANCE
A collection of farcical prank calls from Johnny Pemberton, perhaps best known for his role as the titular Son of Zorn in "Son of Zorn". Or from his Starburns Audio Podcast show "Live to Tape", his appearances on NBC's "Superstore" and the 21 Jump Street films.
Recorded for Quality Assurance begins as an innocent collection of crank calls that quickly devolve into Lynchian conversations and absurdist diatribes on life, work, existence, pain, and the usual topics we all ponder when dealing with call centers.
