Memory Tapes : Seek Magic

Memory Tapes is the combination of one man band Dayve Hawk's Memory Cassette and Weird Tapes projects. Its seems to be for the best as the melding has resulted in Hawk focusing his talent into an album of excellent lo-fi electronic pop experimentation. The dusty disco 'Bicycle' is as good a tune you'll hear this year, dreamy West-Coast guitars fuzz away with 'Plain Material' while hypnotic synth arpeggios fill 'Pink Stones' with joyous repetition. Only currently available through Rough Trade, the CD version comes with a bonus disc featuring 22 minute jam 'Treeship'.
