A couple of days ago Memory Tapes revealed a brand new studio track from his forthcoming studio album through a compilation called Love SIC Disco, available for free on The Guardian UK website. Love SIC Disco itself is a cool 18 tracks and the new Memory Tapes track, Today Is Our Life really glimmers above most on the album.
The video was released yesterday and it was put together by Jamie Harley who is also responsible for some videos from Twin Shadow and Memoryhouse. Today Is Our Life is a cleverly constructed collage of footage from the 1920's and 30's, all brilliantly layered to give that trippy kaleidoscope affect.
After taking a touring break to concentrate on various remixes, including the fantastic rework of Babe, Terror's Havai, it's good to know Dayve Hawk aka Memory Tapes also has a new studio album due later this year.
