Memory Tapes keep your neighborhood safe on new single
Dayve Hawk, the Philly-based producer you may know as Memory Tapes, has shared the latest taste of his upcoming album Grace/Confusion in the form of "Neighborhood Watch", the album's opening track, which will hopefully make you forget what an awful year it's been for neighborhood watches in general, both in real life and on screen.
Instead, Hawk's languid beats, hazy synths, and blurred guitars hope to bring you all the way back to the halcyon days of 2009: we had a President named Barack Obama, some newfangled technology called the iPhone 3GS hit the stores, and all the young people were "getting jiggy with" a hip new genre called "chillwave." Oh, we were so innocent back then, weren't we?
Grace/Confusion is set to hit stores on December 4th via Carpark Records, so in the meantime just immerse yourself in "Neighborhood Watch", and ponder some of life's greatest mysteries, chief amongst them being, why would someone with a name as incredible as "Dayve Hawk" be making his living as a chillwave musician and NOT as something more befitting such a name, like a superstar stunt man? Or a porn star? Or a superstar porn stunt man?
