The Twin Videos Of Memory Cassette

By NME Blog

Posted on 12 Aug 09


Here is the nutty video for Surfin' and Body In The Water, two tracks from the dreamy new Memory Cassette EP, Call & Response. The mysterious Mr Cassette (AKA Weird Tapes AKA Memory Tapes AKA Dayve Hawk) told me about his record made of pairs.

Memory Cassette - Surfin'/Body In The Water

"The idea of the EP was to take two old songs (one for each side) and then record a response to the tracks; so Surfin got Body In The Water and Asleep At A Party got Last One Awake. The two older tracks are much older than people realize, they were recorded in about 1998, while I was a senior in high school.

"Surfin' was about my obsession with music. I hated the sound of my voice so much that I didn't record anything with vocals for years after. It's very weird that the stuff is coming out now but fun in a way as well."

The Call & Response EP is available now on Acephale Records. Watch the slightly more chilled video for the other tracks, Asleep At A Party and Last One Awake over at Pinglewood.
