- I Will Race You by The Faded Tapes

The last of these super-limited 7”s we got in from Box Bedroom Rebels was a beautifully packaged thing that came with a toy plane, and this one by The Faded Tapes has similarly extravagant window-dressing, with a fold-out poster and an insert and a little sealed envelope of goodies in a hand-numbered riso printed sleeve. Really nice.
On the record itself are some home recorded instrumentals by a then-17-year-old Dane Chadwick, more recently drummer for Abe Vigoda, which are pleasantly chugging bits of post-rock like Mogwai at their most restrained and upbeat, but with a bit of a Teenage Fanclubby chiming summer indie haze, all laid back shimmers and twinkles and soft, bouncy drum grooves. Closer ‘We Got Old’ is a wearily heartfelt number with Emery Reel twinkles and Jim White-ish drumming. It all sounds rather late-’90s/early-’00s so I’d hazard a guess that it was recorded around then although I can’t figure that out from the sleeve...perhaps it says inside the envelope. All the more reason to buy one!
