Yet another mix from Memory Tapes chock full of “unreleased, original stuff: tracks from GRACE/CONFUSION, excerpts from “Black Reel” and some other b-sides and remix work.”
Memory Tapes - Grace / Confusion LP is out 10/4 from Carpark, and pre-orders are up here. Interesting to see the released track list includes only 6 songs while clocked at 39min. Very nice to see Dayve Hawk is clearly not catering to drone radio airtime.
Found some gold in my inbox just now, new Memory Tapes full length is apparently due out 12/4 on Carpark. Seems like Player Piano just barely came out, but I guess that was almost a year ago. Much as I enjoyed their sophomore LP, the real juicy stuff is on Seek Magic, which has since gotten repressed cause its so damn sexxy good. That’s you’re cue to order a copy on vinyl.
New track sounds fantastic, a deep long player. Can’t ever get enough Memory Tapes

Loving this cobbled together video piece featuring slicing geometric playdough bits and surfing flood waves. Adventure is a seriously underrated dude, whom I only know from seeing him open for a mediocre OCDJ (see poor Girl Talk wannabe…) a few years ago at Skidmore. Adventure was wearing a red onesy and woody woodpecker baseball cap had with an extended brim. He was so good, the crowd demanded an encore from him after OCDJ played. He was the opener.
The only time I’ve ever known an opener to smoke the main act.
Yes it was that good. Grab his Lesser Known LP from Carpark here
Debut Journal of Ardency 10” EP fromClass Actress was one of the best and most overlooked releases last year. Ironically the Terrible Recordstotally called it now more than a year ago “…from the soon to be famous band.“ Not surprisingly, Class Actress has been signed to the respectable Carpark, who’ve managed to get a number of excellent releases of late including the new Memory Tapes LP.
The new Class Actress LP is titled Rapprocher, whichtranslates from French to mean “to come closer.” To hear some more free Class Actress tunes if you missed the OOP 10”, download their Daytrotter session here on the free. Unfortunately there’s still quite a wait on the LP, so you’ll have hold out till October 18th. Try and catch her with Washed Out on tour in the meantime?…Tracklist below:
01 Keep You 02 Love Me Like You Used To 03 Weekend 04 Prove Me Wrong 05 Need to Know 06 Limousine 07 All the Saints 08 Bienvenue 09 Missed 10 Hangin’ On 11 Let Me In
New Memory Tapes…really need I say more? His debut 2009 LP Seek Magic was definitely in my top 3 albums of that year. No doubt. He is insanely talented, and I cannot wait for this to hit the scene. If you’re confused, go listen to Seek Magic right now; just download it, you can;t buy the vinyl no mores. As in drop your shit and go…and keep working/doing whatever you were doing + listening to Seek Magic. Stay tuned for Player Piano set to hit the intertube shelves July 5th worldwide by Carpark/SIC/Inertia.
Been dreamin’ and waiting for the followup Memory Tapes LP for far too long. Seek Magic was definitely a top record of 2009 for me. If you missed that record, please do yourself a major favor and pick up the second pressing fromAcéphale Ltd to 1000 on white vinyl here
On July 5, Carpark releases the long awaited 2nd LP from Memory Tapes, Player Piano (the LP will see release in Europe on Something in Construction, while Inertia will handle the Australian release). Supposedly Dayve Hawk is taking the music in a new direct that focuses less on electronic ambient beats and more so “keyboard-based psychedelic girl-group songs,” whatever that means. Personally I’m down either way, and the heavy electronic deals sound equally as good.
This posted jam is a remix from a very limited Memory Tapes Bicycle 12” that I happened to track down via discogs. Word of advice if you’re looking for some rare/OOP vinyl, chances are besides ebay, the best place to find it is on discogs; a free music database/community, where people privately sell physical music releases (ie lots o vinyl).
