Memory Tapes: “Wait in the Dark”[audio:http://alarm-magazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Memory-Tapes-Wait-In-The-Dark.mp3|titles=Memory Tapes: “Wait in the Dark”]
On July 5, New Jersey-based multi-instrumentalist Dayve Hawk, better known as Memory Tapes,will release Player Piano, the follow-up to his 2010 debut, Seek Magic. Like his first album, Hawk once again recorded in his home studio, playing each instrument himself, without the aid of sequencing software. With its doo-wop harmonies and synth-soul intersections, Hawk described Player Piano as “a sort of Motown suicide note.” A little dark, a little humorous — just like his playlist for ALARM: a musical exploration of inebriation and indignation.
