Friends, today we find the digital release (tapes coming in a week or so) of the follow-up to Unur’s two previous Modern Tapes Eps/Genetic Music 12″. This is the first proper full length to come from this nomadic one person band. 13 new songs of further evolved post-wave noir, created from an eclectic mix of vintage and modern analogue synthesizers washed with a haze of ever increasing guitar buzz. This is the next step.
European Tour with Froe Char February-March 2014 details SOON.
Friends, family, lovers, haters,
dec 22 marks a new day for Modern Tapes. Our first vinyl release!!!
also our 10th release. We don’t churn out recordings the way other labels do, slow and steady really works for us. I like to think each release keeps upping the ante for the next. Don’t worry MT hasn’t forgotten you cassette lovers out there, there are some cassette releases in the near future too, and perhaps some more vinyl. But now, to share this awesome chunk of dinosaur with you.
Fossils is the third release from Froe Char, the solo alias of Christina of the also amazing Parisian duo Illustration Sonore. Where her first recordings as Froe Char writhed in distortion and doom Fossils pushes the rhythm to the forefront and breaks the synths through the haze creating an opaque yet completely minimal mutant wave masterpiece.
Simply put, i fucking love this record.
pre-order now. and get the download immediately.
Europe tour planned with Unur (who also has a new recording coming soon) in february 2014.
We’re inching closer to our release dates. You can stream both the Staring Problem and Unur releases now.
Downloads will be available dec 21, cassettes will be ready just before the new year and they’ll hit itunes, emusic, etc. the first or second week of january 2011. Excitement abounds!
