2013 Has been an interesting year for MT. there was much talk of a handful of cassette releases. Time has turned one of these in to the first vinyl Lp by Modern Tapes. What better way to celebrate our 10th release!
Froe Char aka Italian/Parisian Christina Lauro is also known as 1/2 of the duo Illustration Sonore who has an amazing Lp being released by the fantastic Medical Records label. There have been a pair of previous Froe Char releases of dark beautiful ambiance but with “Fossils” she takes the distorted haze and murk of her prior work and uses it as a texture amid percolating synths and minimalist rhythms. “Fossils” is the sultry minimal synth record for the experimental crowd or the noisy bleak record for the coldwave kids. I once heard someone say “you can’t dance to pain” but this record really proves otherwise.
this record is the first in a collaborative effort between Modern Tapes and the amazing French label Spielzeug Muzak. more info soon, but until then, here’s a teaser:
