check out the myspace (www.myspace.com/tapesonline) to listen to the b-sides from vol.2 (they’re ace).
podcast will be available tomorrow
last summer I was going to go and see a band called frightened rabbit, for a variety of reasons (primarily laziness and a “lack of liquid funds”) i ended up not going, but marked the band down on my mental ‘keep an eye on’ list.
i finally got around to getting hold of their second album, the midnight organ fight, and have had it on non-stop for the past fortnight. it’s bloody great! (and now makes me regret not seeing them in a tiny room above a pub as they are clearly on their way to bigger things)
i can’t quite place exactly why i’m so enamoured with it, it’s probably a bit more guitary and scottish than anything i usually listen to, immediate, and valid, comparisons could be drawn with biffy clyro and idlewild. Also the lyrical content, concerning the breakup of a relationship, seems, on paper, fairly mundane.
however in reality it is a glorious thing, part anthemic, part fuzzy yet with a number of beautiful elements, part lyrical. give it a whirl.
fifth music type=CIELOVERO (ace in space)
fifth art type=ash mann and his photobox
v2 has lots more of Cam talking, less of Ash talking (the public spoke, we listened).
all systems are go!
p.s. this also seems to start to balance out the silly gender bias that was going on. woo! equality! woo!

apologies for the apparent lack of obvious activity, we’ve been organising many things.
5th music slot and art types tba in the next week.
The brilliant My First Tooth will be featured in Tapes volume 2.
We would’ve recorded them last weekend but, due to Ash, the recording equipment ended up 200 miles away from the band (rookie error).
