Memory Tapes

Memory TapesHaving released music under the names Memory Cassette and Weird Tapes, Dayve Hawke has now settled on Memory Tapes as the moniker under which to release his debut album, ‘Seek Magic’. The obsession with a certain retro audio format isn’t entirely accidental, either. There’s a definite 80s edge to his hazy electronic tracks, nodding towards early New Order in particular, but also the likes of The Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine.

But this isn’t some mindless recreation of music gone by (I’m looking at you, La Roux), it’s lush bedroom production, that has clearly had time and love poured into it, make ‘Seek Magic’ an album that, while a little bit retro, is entirely new and refreshing. Already on sale in limited numbers through Rough Trade, the album goes on general release via the Something In Construction label on 16 Nov.
