“Here To Fade” // New Tape Waves

I must have been living under a rock all summer because Tape Waves snuck a new album out from under my nose and it’s fantastic.

Ok, quick back story. I don’t really remember how I stumbled across Tape Waves. I wish I could tell you this cool story about how I saw them in a weird DIY show in a Royal Farms parking lot or something, but I can’t (prolly just found them online being an internet recluse). But the guitars, the sound that Jarod produces from his guitar affects me the same way as Johnny Marr’s. Yes, that’s a BIG comparison, but I’m just saying.

“Here To Fade” is their newest project that was released off of Bleeding Gold Records on July 29th, 2016. The stand-out song to me are “So Fast” and “Nowhere”.

Both “So Fast” and “Nowhere” are very drum driven and jangly. That’s what think draws me to Tape…

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. A five track cassette entitled ‘Acquiescence’  is a co-release between UK labels Hail Hail and EDILS Records (digitally through Bleeding Gold Records) will be available from October 16th.

Tape Waves – Here To Fade

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…
