This review is from: The Loon (Audio CD)
Tapes 'n Tapes are (it's been claimed) one of the hottest bands around at the moment, and they're certainly not bad. A kind of strange mix of Bloc Party and Modest Mouse, The Loon is much more understated than either Silent Alarm or Good News For People Who Like Bad News. The use of clean, reverbed guitars and jazzy shuffles lend a loose, spacious atmosphere to the precedings. You probably need to listen to the album a few times to notice all the intricacies, which are sometimes lost in the deliberately lo-fi sound, but it's worth the investment.
