Mobilia :: Memory Tapes - Seek Magic

Midas

The brain and mastermind behind the Memory Tapes is Dayve Hawk, responsible for the adjacent and previous musical project that also listen to the exotic names, Memory Cassette and Weird Tapes. Diverse personality, full of aliases, it seems that everything he touches turns to gold. With remix to Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Peter Bjorn & John, even in Britney Spears, and tour company of Interpol, his CV is impressive. Musicological the first had a more psychedelic pop sound, while that of Weird Tapes leaned more to dance and electro. As normal, the Memory Tapes get the best from both, creating a multilayered sound, which can start from reflective mood and result to a frantic dance, even within the same song! The Seek Magic is the first work of Memory Tapes, even the first of a series of releases that will follow in the future, at least tells us the Rough Trade, is directly followed by an even «psychedelic girl group» record!

Steps

 Dayve Hawk therefore refuses to adhere to established pop, dance and electro structures. Manages to enrich his music with mastery, using many common everyday sounds with an impressive result. Barking of dogs, the sound of rain falling, bird tweets, a very characteristic sound that leave the sneakers and basketball on the court, etc., sounds that are not readily apparent, and throughout the course of the record are usually discreet and subtle, but recognizable. The Hawk is crashing the mastery of the keys and produces a dazzling album that shines even in the imperfections.

Technique New Order

The Plain Material appears to be the forerunner of the next album (as we said). A strange mix of cloudy guitars and a sixties melody, catches fire out of the blue, made of drum-machine and ethereal vocals, sublime melody. The Green Knight except for the weakness column, is the institution of the smartest and most unexpected tricks that drive, the famous basketball steps. The first single is Bicycle, almost ethereal, with strong beats, haunted vocals and a la New Order in the years of Technique, mournfully guitar solo take off one way or another exquisite piece.

The magic s

  Don't believe in what he says in the title, the magic is here. Dayve Hawk makes a psychedelic disco ... with cohones and the result is a little dance, a little dull, but always excellent. It is widespread throughout the course of the album a sense of nostalgia, fun and full moderate energy, energy ecstatic, dreamlike, which  is reminiscent of some Air France, Cocteau Twins and New Order, and some comparisons with Talking Heads, My Bloody Valentine and Boards of Canada is also inevitable.
