Here's what people have been saying about it...
Horse Trailer immediately invites the listener with undulating guitars and lovely steel guitar...The entire EP is really cinematic which impresses me that 3 songs can capture enough of a distinct flavor to exist on their own. I’m a big fan of the EP format and Tapes & Tubes did a great job making a statement with 3 songs. Highly recommended for fans of folk, country, ambient, and the intersection of these genres.
-I Heart Noise
...To put it simply, there's something inspiring about Tapes and Tubes. From the true ambiance, beautiful signature tones, and overall dedication to the pieces presented to us. Tapes and Tubes is magic, astonishing ambient magic.
A life with loneliness by our side sprung into existence
to prevent the hurt from coming.
It’s peculiar but alluring.
i will have this on repeat until i fall asleep tonight.
Tapes & Tubes, a.k.a. Austin Potter, recently shared his new EP Horse Trailer. Draped in an eerie, cinematic, western-folkie simplicity, the hushed, secret-delivering vocals reverberate and then vaporize. Those bare atmospherics allow one to slow down, collect their thoughts, and maybe flashback to the unresolved questions of the past.
Rings of radiation from the sun change the color of the air.
Philadelphia storyteller/musician Austin Potter AKA Tapes & Tubes has a new release called "Horse Trailer"...Austin combines subtle guitar playing with closely observed tactile prose delivered in an intimate whisper for a unique and cinematic version of audio americana. Listening to this makes you feel like the dust gathering around the corners of booths in interstate diners never to be cleaned up, left there to see and hear the never ending shuffling of souls in transit.
