The Music Tapes

Julian Koster’s Music Tapes (part of the Elephant 6 collective) has a new album out on Merge, Music Tapes For Clouds and Tornadoes. A single listen will clue you in to his past work with Neutral Milk Hotel, but even with all his attention to antiquated recording techniques and bizarre instrumentation (singing saws, seven-foot metronomes), it’s not as good as you want it to be. Decide for yourself, and read my review for Blurt here.
