Band Spotlight: Tapes N' Tapes

Genre: Independent-Psych Folk
History: Formed in 2003 at Carleton College in Minnesota
Musical Style: Wikipedia describes it best: "[Ranges] from fast-paced polka renditions to the slower, more blues-influenced songs." Some tunes definitely sound more like folk than others.
Top Songs: "Manitoba", "Omaha"
Best Album: (Their only album) The Loon (2005)

Why You Should You Listen To Tapes N' Tapes: If you like a bunch of different types of rock music, you are sure to like Tapes N' Tapes. Many songs are a combination of two or more of the following: folk, psychedelic, heavy sounding rock, and experimental. If you prefer laid back tunes, go with "Omaha" and "Manitoba". If you want more heavy sounding material, I would recommend "Insistor". If you are in the mood for something more experimental, you should listen to "Cowbell". You can't really go wrong with Tapes N' Tapes.

Grade: A - Terrific/Must Listen
