Listen: Tape Waves – ‘Standing In Line’

Killer Ponytail

tape wavesYou know summer has truly arrived when Charleston’s Tape Waves release a new record. 

Not only does the duo’s sonic aesthetic conjure up the essence of a beach breeze, but their sound also seems to encapsulate an emotional longing with which it’s nearly impossible not to relate.  

The band’s second album, Here To Fade is slated for release on 29 July via Bleeding Gold Records, and the latest cut ‘Standing In Line’ is the perfect introduction to Tape Waves’ approach to soulful dream pop.

The track rushes in with echo chamber guitars interweaving an intoxicating melody before Kim Hart Weldin’s vocals rise like a plush hit of summer air.

But the song’s summery disposition belies a knowingly sombre subject matter. The band say this of the track:

Track of the day #92 : Tape Waves – So Fast

Mix It All Up

Tape Waves are dreampop duo, Jared and Kim Weldin from Charleston, SC. The band are set to release their sophomore album ‘Here To Fade’ on 29th July 2016 and the first track from the album is ‘So Fast‘.

For a track which instrumentation is almost quite folky in nature regarding the guitar and basslines, this dreampop track is not typical of its counterparts. This is only a good thing and makes ‘So Fast’ a rather unique track. The soft vocals throughout are contrasting to the instrumentation, drowned in reverb in which the colourful guitar melodies stand out against.

The track ‘So Fast’ will be available on Tape Waves next album ‘Here To Fade’ which will be released at the end of this month, but  for now, you can listen to it via Soundcloud below.

BG105 | As Loud As I Can

Posted in Uncategorized on May 24, 2016 by bleedinggold
Spooky Cigarette, whose name is a facetious nudge at their frontmanʼs self proclaimed identity as a black (spook) fag (cigarette), is a New/No Wave project from San Diego, California, formed in the fall of 2015. Fronted by Frank Mindingall (Beaters, Northern Tigers, Ale Mania) and consisting of Jakob McWhinney (Space Heat, The Soaks) Skylar Eppler (Via Meteor), and Danny Gallo (formerly of Hills like Elephants), the project aims to channel the subtly decorated borders of night and day. With dirigible synths, cumulonimbus flangers, and the cool colors of pop, theyʼve already shared the stage with excellent acts such as Lower Dens, Thee Commons, Grenda, Chris Cohen, Island Boy, TV Girl & Tijuana Panthers. Their debut EP, ʻAs Loud As I Canʼ is an attempt to fully realize social and sexual identity and reconcile all the time lost. It is both haunting and inviting, like writhing in chaise to find the perfect position. ʻAs Loud As I Canʼ is set to be released on cassette through Bleeding Gold Records and Field Trips.

Formed in the fall of 2015, Spooky Cigarette is an homage to new wave, no wave, and post punk. With fluorescent guitars, cumulonimbus synths, and a dusk bass, Spooky Cigarette is the subtly decorated borders of night and day. As loud as I Can is both haunting and comfortable, like writhing in a chaise to find the perfect position.
