Trivia[]

  • As part of an April Fools joke, a limited edition 8-track tape was made available during the first week of April (April 1-7), 2019.[1] Continuing the tradition, a limited edition "No Moon No Stars LP" was also released on April 1, 2021.[2] It was all black, unlike Needlejuice Record's typical colored vinyl, and was a limited run of 100.
  • The tracklist went though many iterations during development. For example, in the comment section of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INw9IMP2eR4, Neil Cicierega provides an early tracklist that also contains the singles that were being posted to his Bandcamp at the time. These singles were later compiled into the Nature Tapes EP in 2014.
