[listen] Memory Tapes – “Neighbourhood Watch”

The bedroom pop artist gets even more ambitious.

- Nov 15, 2012

Memory Tapes has been killing it with these galumphing bedroom pop epics, and Stereogum's got the premiere of another one, the feisty “Neighbourhood Watch.” The beginning hears the Supertramp-y vocals float through a glorious heat-refracted bleariness, before being carried through several very different sections that seem only vaguely connected, like countries on a map. But the journey doesn't come to an end peacefully; the last few minutes unleash a sound barrier-breaking Nine Inch Nails recalling finale that's just another curveball in a series of fascinating ones.

Grace/Confusion is out December 4th on Carpark Records.
