LOW STOCK LEVEL
[deleted version, replaced by Hapna 041CD]. "Tape is a trio from Stockholm, Sweden, building their music from a whole array of acoustic instruments, computer and field recordings. Their first CD Opera got excellent reviews in international press and was compared to artists such as Talk Talk, Gastr del Sol, Fennesz, John Fahey and Faust. Their new CD Milieu shares the same basic premises as Opera. All kinds of sound sources are used and organically integrated in the songs, which move freely somewhere between the composed and the improvised. Even if Milieu makes use of experimental methods, the album is argumentatively more song-based than Opera and therefore maybe more accessible."
