Third World Skull Candy is an occasional sound experiment in lo-fi, drone, noise, micromontage, acoustic pixelation, and the time-varying distribution of spectral energy, guided by Tom Philips's observation 'The sound in my life enlarges my prison'.

TWSC tracks are built from homemade field recordings and samples of obscure, out-of-print, or otherwise orphaned or broken or marginal music and soundtracks.

Releases are available for a limited time only. Recent releases include...
