Memory Tapes gets a bit less “chillwave” on his latest “LP” Grace/Confusion (LP in quotes because not sure how 6 songs can be considered an LP…but i digress). He’s added in a good amount of aching guitar lines and heavy bass breakdowns which has resulted in a much more broad range of styles throughout the album, keeping things interesting and less bedroom-y.
You can stream the whole album over at pitchfork, but i’ve embedded what I consider the standout track “Sheila”, which starts off with a light piano (organ?) line only to keep building and building both in intensity as well as dance-ability, until the bridge brings in a great gritty synth guitar solo followed by some glitched out 8-bit worthy bleeps, finally ending with a loud and intense combination of both. Well done. Grace/Confusion comes out Dec. 4th (order)
