Local Music: The Blank Tapes

We here at H.A.D. have been digging The Blank Tapes ever since their 2005 release Landfair. The band is the brainchild of local musician Matt Adams (who also does the album art!) and a rotating cast of guest musicians. Their records offer up an awesome blend of 60's rock sounds, low-fi prowess, and pop charm. A new release last year, Daydreams, slipped under our radar, but we managed to discover it last week.

While we were enjoying the free mp3's the band has on their website, we were psyched to see that they're playing two dates in March. The first is next Monday, the 10th, at Cafe Du Nord. The second is on Sunday March 23rd at the Hotel Utah. We recommend you check them out - you won't regret it.
