Check out this extended mix of all new material.
Memory Tapes‘ album “Player Piano” just dropped in July, but already the synth-pop act, which is the alter ego of Dayve Hawk, has readied new material. It’s a lengthy track — really more like a mixtape — that cycles through different feels, tempos and styles. Sometimes it’s laid-back and mellow, serving nicely as background music, but then there will be a swell of sound or a barrage of drum beats that pull you out and demand to be noticed. There’s a good balance, which keeps it from getting stale.
Hawk said about the project, which he first published on Modcast,
“I find I listen to mixtapes more than albums a lot of the time, so I wanted to make a new record in the form of a mixtape instead of a single or EP etc. It’s all new, original Memory Tapes stuff just put together in the form of an extended mix. I thought the Modcast would be a cool way to make it available to people quickly and for free.”
