Product Description

Product Description

With six tracks clocking in at over 39 minutes, Grace/Confusion is a rewarding change of pace for Memory Tapes, the length freeing Hawk to abandon dance music tropes and weave together songs from fragmented hooks, snatches of melodies and bombasts of instrumentals. 'Discarding any ideas about genre, format or even song structure didn't feel like a liberation though, more like a maze to get lost in,' Hawk says. Out of this confusion came Memory Tapes most inventive tracks to date, from the melancholy love story of 'Sheila', told over alternating suites of dark synths and distorted guitars, to the dramatic coda of 'Neighborhood Watch'. Lush production adds a dimension of depth to Grace/Confusion s comprehensive sound, drawing from space rock and classic electro in its experimental rendering of pop music.

3.0 out of 5 stars I want it to be great, but it isn't 1 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I want it to be great, but it isn't. It has good bits, but this album isn't Seek Magic...nor is it the outstanding EPs 'Call and Response' or 'Rewind When Sleepy' under the other name Memory Cassette.

This album, although short is packed with infectious grooves which beg you to download the rest of his discography as Memory Cassettes, Weird Tapes and Hail Social.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sublime surprise of new and highly addictive songs 12 Dec 2012
By asleepdavid - Published on
Verified Purchase
Dayve Hawk, former front man of Philadelphia-based Hail Social really shows just how talented he is with this album taking you on sublime and intriguing dream of beautiful sound. Voice harmony and electronic keyboard work is simply awesome. Hawk's knowledge of older electronic music is very apparent and enjoyable but he making everything highly original and brand new. As you listen your heart and ears will be quickly become very happy and your girlfriend will too. mine did. Lol. BEWARE Grace and Confusion is highly addictive. One play through and your hopelessly hooked and I mean it. One of my favorite albums of the year.
