i am not quite sure who weird tapes are - they obviously have something to do with hail social - but they definitely got me all excited when i first heard their 'get religion' ep. all their tunes are very playful, have tons of both familiar and obscure samples and always come with a disco vibe. not as in vintage disco, not as in valerie and not as in lindstrom. just as in weird tapes. and i just love what they do. here are two tracks from the ep:
weird tapes - the heavens
weird tapes - party trash
you can get the complete ep over at the weird social blog, where i also picked up 'blue skies captain', a rather eclectic mix/compilation by weird tapes, packed with wonderful music that i've never heard before. a great chance (for the open-minded among you) to get educated. no tracklist for now, i am afraid.
weird tapes - blue skies captain
now go add weird tapes on myspace as i am sure we'll all be in for some more surprises from them. i can't wait. and like so many other good tracks, i've found this on 20jazzfunkgreats - merci.
