Tapes. They are bloody rubbish aren't they? But are they? Well yes they chew up, get stuck in the machine its impossible to get from one track to the another but being a nerdy geek boy I've come to the conclusion that the sound is somewhat superb, warm and organic with none of the CD's harshness. I'm not even going to comment on mp3s as you might as well be listening to the things down the telephone. I used to listen to honest to goodness indie pop like this on tapes such as Corrupt Postman back in the late 80's and early 90's and I used to enjoy every bloody minute! This is like some kind of time warp, despite initial misgivings with the very twee opener, the remainder of the tape is fantastic girl fronted indie like your mum used to make. Gorgeous innocent vocals, early Field Mice guitars and Woolworths drum machines. I love the fact that the thing hasn't been mastered so the fourth track comes in at about half the level of the preceding track. Is this by accident or design - surely it can't be that studied?
