Giving the People What They Want - Tapes 'n Tapes Live from SXSW

Making the Friday Charts may have been a mistake. People turn up looking to actually download the albums of the artists I mention and no doubt go away feeling cheated and hating my blog. Sorry, but most of those artists I have minimal interest in even listening to, let alone providing people with MP3s of. However since a ton of traffic seems to be coming from those search results, I've decided to give back a little something to that particular group of traffic.

Tapes 'n Tapes - The Loon

The top artist that people come through looking for is Tapes n' Tapes, which could be a sign that their music truly does rise above the hype. I will personally have to give it another listen, nothing grabbed me about it the first time. But nevertheless, here is my gift to all of those Tapes 'n Tapes fans. The band performed a live set on the radio for KEXP down at SXSW yesterday and I got the MP3s. It's a short set, only four real songs, but a chance to get a taste of the band. If you're not familiar with the band read this interview with them over at *Sixeyes while the performance is downloading. MP3s below:

1. Intro
2. Just Drums
3. Manitoba
4. Interview
5. Insistor
6. Cowbell
7. Outro

Comments

You've gone from absolutely hating this band (amateurish mess, I believe you called it) to saying "nothing grabbed you about it." Why the change? Are you starting to realize they are actually really fucking good?

Hey there,

My stance hasn't changed, but I'm always willing to give things another chance. I tried to email to ask what your favorite song was but the email bounced. If anyone else has a favorite song that they think deserves a closer listen, let me know.
