My Moon & Stars, my Blue Heaven. Recorded between summer and fall 2014 at Tapes & Tubes, Seaford, DE.
Here’s what people have been saying about it…
tapes & tubes is the nom de tape of bedroom recording artist austin potter of philadelphia, pennsylvania. the tunes on his latest effort, ‘moon & stars’ are atmospheric, melancholy, story-songs. instruments and tapes fuzz create vaguely noir backgrounds for potter’s up-close, whispery talk singing. the music has a seriously narrative, cinematic feel to it, more like a modern beatnik radio play than any sort of rock’n’roll.
-The Modern Folk Music of America
…Potter explores the edges between folk and drone rock. His deep voice is well-suited to his somber monologues juxtaposed with delicate fingerpicking. It’s perfect for a winter twilight.
listening to this one nonstop, each track is so cohesive and work around eachother so well, as if they were all various parts of the same song while still feeling incredibly unique. Very soulful vocals and instrumental, meaningful and raw lyricism, and awfully visceral presentation. The gritty soul music i needed to spice up my bandcamp library. definitely checking out more of his work. randy_artist
