Song of the Day - March 27, 2006

The land of 10,000 lakes has done it again with the band Tapes'n Tapes. This Minneapolis based quartet's latest release entitled The Loon is an awesome album. Their influences range from The Pixies, Beach Boys, Pavement, Flaming Lips, and The Talking heads. Great tracks are abundant including the brilliant opening track "Just Drums," the tropicali influenced "The Illiad," the comic "Cowbell" and the Nirvana influenced loud and soft passages of "10 Gallon Ascots." However, most people that listen to The Loon find that "Insistor" is their favorite track and I am not an exception. I felt that the song had echoes of The Violent Femmes. The lyrics are great; the music has country leanings intermixed with a touch of gypsy like riffs and plenty of reverb on the guitars. Click here to listen.
