Tapes ‘n Tapes – Walk It Off

May 3, 2008

tapesntapeswalkitoffWalk It Off, the second album from Minneapolis based band Tapes ‘n Tapes has apparently divided fans between those who see this as a progression, and those who see this as a sophomore slump. I finally got a chance to listen to it myself, and I fall firmly into the former camp. It’s a skilled mix of alt-rock by way of bands like the Pixies, along with some acid, psychedelic and prog rock thrown in for good measure, which makes for a very dynamic and all around pretty terrific rock record. It especially catches on fire with tracks 7 and 8, “Demon Apple” and “Blunt,” but the whole album is worth your listening ear. As soon as I finished listening to it, I immediately started back at track one. Good stuff, and definitely play loud! Standout cuts: “Hang Them All, “Conquest,” “Blunt” and “Anvil.”
