The bands next release quickly follows and coincides with a European tour in October. A five track cassette entitled ‘Acquiescence’ is a co-release between UK labels Hail Hail and EDILS Records (digitally through Bleeding Gold) will be available from October 14th. A more experimental and ambient collection compared to its predecessor, ‘Acquiescence’ see’s Oh Well, Goodbye use drums loops and keyboards for the first time on half of the tracks while still touching upon the band’s pop sensibilities and downbeat ‘post punk’ sound. This leads nicely into the final release of the trilogy; ‘I Know, I Know, I Know’ which is a remix EP comprised of tracks from both ‘Swoon’ and ‘Acquiescence’. Hitting the world wide web on November 11th, again through Bleeding Gold, the digital only release features remixes by a host of acts including Dignan Porch (Faux Discx/Captured Tracks), Gorgeous Bully (Art Is Hard), Moonlit Sailor (Deep Elm) and new comers such as Dayflower and Grave Diggers Union.

Oh well goodbye - Tom Rees - Colour

Hailing from Liverpool England, Oh Well Goodbye quietly crept into the UK scene with debut cassette release ‘BG092’ through U.S label Bleeding Gold Records. Beginning as a solo project during down time of his ‘dayjob’ band People//Talk, Philip Rourke (founder of EDILS records/booking)  quickly assembled like minded musicians  and played a scattering of shows in London and northern England, as well as a 5 date tour of France in late 2015.  Oh Well Goodbye, completed by Sam Banks (bass), Peter Seddon (Guitar) and Andy Fernihough (Drums) have continued to push creatively as a unit while fully maintaining their Lo-Fi DIY approach. Three new EPs will be released before the end of 2017 and each one presents a progressive step showcasing Oh Well Goodbye’s bittersweet musical movements that border the edge of collapse. Post punk is murky ground but Oh Well Goodbye given their northern English heritage slot in and out easily. A lush mix of early 90’s styled guitars, dance punk beats and hushed, almost spoken vocal ride along effortlessly. As beautiful as it is ugly, the nonchalant display masks the chaos and vulnerability underneath.
The first release of the trilogy is a four track EP entitled  ‘Swoon’. A step up from the home recording of Rourke’s debut effort,  ‘Swoon’ was recorded in a Liverpool studio live by the bands drummer Andy Fernihough.  ‘Swoon’ is available on pink and grey 7” as well as digitally from September 16th through Bleeding Gold Records. The band’s next release quickly follows and will coincide with a European tour in October.

Tape Waves – Here To Fade

Posted in Uncategorized on September 11, 2016 by bleedinggold

Tape Waves Here To FadeDès les premières secondes de So Fast, titre d’ouverture du nouvel album des américains de Tape Waves, un climat de romantisme atemporel règne sans partage. Il faut dire que le duo, natif de Charleston, en Caroline du Sud, en connaît un rayon quand il s’agit d’écrire des ballades fluides, aux couleurs variées et évanescentes à l’image de l’illustration qui orne la pochette d’Here To Fade. Deuxième album déjà pour Kim et Jarod Weldin après Let You Go, paru en 2014, mais c’est comme si rien n’avait changé. Les guitares se font sensibles et se mélangent harmonieusement aux discrets claviers pour donner naissance à une dream pop que des groupes comme Cocteau Twins ou Talula Gosh ne renieraient certainement pas.

Certains pourraient reprocher un manque criant d’originalité, d’autres groupes s’étant déjà pliés à l’exercice, de Seapony à Beach Fossils pour ne citer que les derniers…

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:

“‘Standing In Line’ recalls that lovesick feeling, when you’re waiting on the person you love to live up to your ideal…

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

Posted in Band Update, Music with tags , , , , , , on July 13, 2016 by bleedinggold

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.
