MEMORY TAPES TAKEOVER

Goodnight from Memory Tapes

Well that's it for me (unless some stragglers show up late to the party) so thanks again for having me and i'll leave you with my favorite record ever: "I Never Dreamed" by The Cookies. -- Memory Tapes
Spike – Orange Cloud Nine
When Phil at Golf Channel sent me Juju & Jordash's "Unleash The Golem" 12" he tucked in an early pressing of another forthcoming LP he thought I'd like... major understatement. Orange Cloud Nine is a collection of tracks taken from a series of home record…
mp3: Joe Moks – “Boys and Girls”
Afrobeat is another source of endless comps (some of my favs being "The World Ends" & "Bambara Mystic Soul") but what sets this one apart is it's taken from later and skews more towards proper disco. The LP is over a year old at this point but it gets…

Juju & Jordash – “Coffin Train”

Juju & Jordash are a pair of Israeli ex-pats now working out of Amsterdam who make some of the best live electronic music going. Their recent full length Techno Primitivism is one of my favorites of the year. The guys are about to release part 2 of 4 in an ongoing series for Golf Channel that, i…
mp3: Pye Corner Audio – “They Know”
Pye Corner Audio has had a great year; the first two volumes of his Black Mill Tapes were reissued on vinyl by Type and he recently dropped another solid full-length Sleep Games on Ghost Box. Whether you're a fan of UK soundtrack/library music or not, his work is so genuinely musical that it tr…
Gorilla vs Tapes
Hey everyone, this is dayve/Memory Tapes and I'll be running GvsB today in celebration of the release of my new record GRACE/CONFUSION which is out today. I'm going to be posting tracks from some of the artists that have inspired me this year so thanks to Chris for having me and hopefully …
Memory Tapes x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover
Memory Tapes' sprawling, heartfelt, beautifully flawed new LP Grace/Confusion is out today on Carpark, and while we continue to attempt to wrap our heads around the record's layered intricacies and thrilling/unexpected/emotional melodic turns, we're commemorating the occasion by handi…
