about

"They capture the elements of movement and feeling better than most musicians and in an unlimited, flowing form. It’s a sound that goes deeper, beyond the surface." -THRWD

"Youth has a Books feel to it, in the sense that it’s a mix of ponderous mystery and familiarity, given a melody that is warm and comforting on top of a beat that is busy but stripped down enough to remain easy to follow." -OVRLD

Tapes' self-titled release experiments with the combination of electronic and analog sound giving the listener a harmoniously immersive experience. The album eases its way through creating a sense of fluidity for the listener. "Tapes" carries the right amount of ambience with beat driven drum machines from track to track to construct 8 separate soundscapes:

II
Youth
Canvas
IV
Sundial
eahsO
Tapes
Mornings

Although each track suggests a separate theme, the 8 tracks bleed into each other producing a light daydream feel, with a serene nostalgic undertone, that carries a presence throughout the album. Tapes' self-titled album experiments with looping, processing, and improvisation, and ultimately finds a happy place to bridge the gap between electronic and analog sound.
