Dazed Digital// A Mixtape From Memory Tapes

Dazed Digital// A Mixtape From Memory Tapes


About the show

Playing tracks by

The Cadillacs With Jesse Powell Orch, Drexciya, Shirley Collins and the Albion Country Band, THE CONGOS, Shuggie Otis and more.

They’re calling it ‘chillwave’, glo-fi’, and even the ‘sound of 2010’. But put aside these slightly absurd tags for the moment and just luxuriate in the nostalgia-drenched, gossamer light beat-driven pop music of bands like Washed Out, Toro Y Moi and Memory Tapes, and there’s no denying that the early part of this new decade has seen the previously abrasive guitar licks of the DIY scene largely supplanted by surprisingly emotive sounds emitted by computers. Settling on the moniker of Memory Tapes after variously been known as Weird Tapes and Memory Cassette; 27 year old ‘stay-at-home dad’ (and remixer to the likes of Phoenix, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Yeasayer) Dayve Hawk’s debut album, Seek Magic was the aural equivalent of sepia-toned polaroids of a much-loved roadtrip. Ecstatic and melancholic at the same time, Hawk is a man not afraid of using handclaps and vintage New Order synths to create dreamscape pop that reaches for the shimmering heights of Saint Etienne or The Tough Alliance.
