8/10 Li'l Biz 12 August 2009
Immensely press shy, 2009's blogger's delight and in huge demand with the cream of international rock and pop (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Digitalism, Britney!!!), Memory Tapes appears to be some kind of internet phenomena. Forged from one man and two identities (Memory Cassette and Weird Tapes) Memory Tapes has gathered further momentum after signing to Loog on the recommendation of The Horrors. With all this hype you'd expect some primo shizzle from this debut wax-o-release. Well, I missed the hype but I'm enjoying the record. 'Bicycle' is a fine example of an experimental pop single that makes no effort to pander to its potential audience. Sure it's an upbeat mixture of dreamy electronica and psychedelic indie pop but it somehow sounds very fresh to my flu-ridden ears. It's got a pleasing vocal, some cool New Order style guitars and even a choir of backing vocalists. 'Plain Material' is a simpler but no less effective number showcasing Memory Tapes guitar and vocal skills before wandering close to Animal Collective territory for the crescendo. Even The Horror's own 'Cosmic Dub' remix of the A-side is pretty decent. A vague yet pleasing little slab I tell thee.
