weird tapes

Weird Tapes is one of the guys from Philly's Hail Social. He sent over his blissful Get Religion EP today, and I've been zoning out to this thing all evening. Warped strains of vaguely familiar melodies -- I think I heard some Boards of Canada, Van Halen, Michael McDonald, and Isley Brothers (or Ice Cube), among others -- fade in and out, swirling and floating up into an ethereal cosmic disco haze. So yeah, the guy apparently knows what he's doing (check that glorious Gram Parsons sample on "Home"). Also, not to be overlooked, it's free.

Not surprisingly, our friends at Discodust are also fans of these Weird Tapes. Download the free EP here, and check the equally tight new songs on Weird Tapes' space.
