Tonight’s Concert Pick: Memory Tapes at Johnny Brenda’s
Fresh off the recent release of Memory Tapes’ sophomore album, Player Piano, on Carpark Records, electronica musician and producer Dayve Hawk performs tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. We’ve been excited about the record’s release since it was first announced earlier this year; since then, we’ve posted a couple of tracks, a mixtape, and briefly spoke to Hawk about the album. [“With Seek Magic (Memory Tapes’ debut album) I was doing a lot of dance music, sort of extended tracks so for this one I wanted to do a more song based, melodic record. The starting point was really old Girl Group stuff, sort of brash/rough/naive pop music. The end result doesn’t really sound directly linked to that stuff, but I tend to veer pretty far off my starting point,” Hawk said at the time.] Below, you can watch the video for “Yes I Know,” off Player Piano. Memory Tapes performs with Sleep Over at 9 p.m. at Johnny Brenda’s; tickets to the 21+ show are $10-$12.
