Don’t worry folks, the newest album from worriedaboutsatan isn’t actually a Blank Tape conceptual release: although it is in cassette format, it is also filled with music. worriedaboutsatan have always been great at creating evocative atmospheres with their semi-ambient post-rock \ electronica, and Blank Tape fully delivers. Released by Spun Out Of Control.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 11 October 2017
Though now apparently dwelling on the 'wrong' side of the pennines in Manchester, worriedaboutsatan are still perhaps one of West Yorkshire's best kept secrets. Here is a cassette re-issue of their 2016 album 'Blank Tape'. Their sound hovers between electronica and post rock - most often falling down on the electronica side yet there's a rock band dynamic at play here. 'The Violent Sequence' pretty much sums up their oeuvre - and excellent bust of jittering electronics that pulse and cavort over a driving rhythm track. The perfect soundtrack for a rain lashed walk around the hills of Shipley.
'The Tower and the Steward' helps explain how this lot have gained plenty of extra curricular soundtrack work with it's Bladerunner-like synths tapping into the same kind of trough that Mogwai furrowed with 'Rave Tapes'. 'The Restless Wing' doesn't quite answer the question on how to blend vocals with electronics but gives it a good go. Elsewhere worriedaboutsatan effortlessly build up layers of monolithic sounds and are at their best creating scary slabs of darkwave such as 'Ravel' with its beautiful mix of post Burial atmospheres and dancefloor-ready beats where the melodic bassline comes in at just the right time. Get ready to dance (bleakly).
