a couple months back i was researching the extended roster of CARPARK RECORDS in preparation for a DEER GOD RADIO episode on the independent record label that specializes in EXPERIMENTAL AMBIENT MUSIC and INDIE ROCK. it was during that process i became acquainted with NEW JERSEY's own MEMORY TAPES, stage alias of multi-instrumentalist/singer-songwriter/record producer DAYVE HAWK.
the sound of MEMORY TAPES is a LO-FI blend of AMBIENT DANCE MUSIC and UNCONVENTIONAL found sound textures with a distinctly HAZY SHOEGAZE aesthetic. listening to HAWK's music makes you feel NOSTALGIC, as if it was a touching soundtrack for a preciously obscure indie film that was never created. i just know that when i discovered MEMORY TAPES after listening to several bands, i was immediately taken by the warm yet distant EMOTIONAL resonance of his songs. definitely worth checking out.
