Hey everyone, the next batch of releases have been delayed by two things. 1. A back up at the manufacturing plant (i can’t keep dubbing tapes myself, my deck is almost broken at this point, plus i can print on them too!) and 2. I’ve been on tour pretty consistently since January. so it looks like JUNE will be when you can expect four new releases from Modern Tapes.
here’s what’s coming!
MT005- MomentForm “Four Days” fantastic French coldwave in the tradition of all the greats but with a voice all its own.
MT006- Unur “anyone” four new songs from chicago’s Unur. The “Anywhere / Anyone” 12″ on Genetic Music is a collection of these songs with the now out of print “Anywhere” cassette from last year.
MT007- Gel Set “Cell Jets” awesome EP of hazy minimal synth spaceouts by this awesome Chicagoan.
MT008- YOU. “Bricks” cassette companion to this Brooklyn synth outfit’s upcoming Lp on Blind Prophet.
the new UNUR 12″ titled “Anywhere / Anyone” will be available in June from the wonderful people at Genetic Music.
There will be a series of record release shows in May and June.
