tapes & tubes is the nom de tape of bedroom recording artist austin potter of philadelphia, pennsylvania. the tunes on his latest effort, 'moon & stars' are atmospheric, melancholy, story-songs. instruments and tapes fuzz create vaguely noir backgrounds for potter's up-close, whispery talk singing.
the music has a seriously narrative, cinematic feel to it, more like a modern beatnik radio play than any sort of rock'n'roll.
get it here digitally or on limited edition lathe-cut 7" vinyl.
