We got an e-mail with these two pretty videos from Patrik that is the mastermind behind Acéphale Records.

“Basically the concept was that since each side of the record told a story in call & response (durrr) form we thought it might be interesting to get people we liked to do videos for the entire sides. So we asked Stockholm’s Sebastian Rozenberg to do a video for “Asleep At A Party/Last One Awake” and Kansas City’s Pat Vamos to try his hand at “Surfin/Body In The Water”.

We were thrilled by both results – Sebastian’s interpretation with its bittersweet nostalgia and Pat’s with its playful psychedelia.

I hope you enjoy each one!”

The Memory Cassette “Call And Response” debut 7″ was recently released by the good people over at Acephale in collaboration with Sweden’s finest Sincerely Yours, limited to 500 copies (some copies could be available at select stores). This remix of the track “Surfin” from Weird Tapes did of himself is a delicate and heavenly piece of bleepy, summery pop music and it’s part of the “Calls & Responses EP” (includes new remixes of Memory Cassette by Friend, CFCF, Sail A Whale and Shadow Self).

All the remixes are to be given away at high quality for free through blogs and will be available as a single download through the We’re Tapes blog shortly.

Memory Cassette + Weird Tapes = Memory Tapes, the new project received quite the blog love yesterday when the first single “Bicycle” surfaced (it’ll be released on Loog this summer backed with a remix by The Horrors). An amazing and blissful mix of pitter patter drums, handclaps, cowbells and harmonic vocals – i’ll be bumping this on the beach in Italy next week. The debut album will be out on the excellent Acéphale label sometime this fall.

Last One Awake

The third release on Canadian label Acephale Records is a collaboration with the Swedes in Sincerely Yours (The Tough Alliance, Air France) to co-release Memory Cassette/Weird Tapes’ first record – “Call & Response”. It’s a four track EP on 7″ white vinyl and as always it’s limited to 500 copies (available as presale). To promote the release the labels asked a few of their favourite people to do some remixes, all of which will be released through blogs.

Here’s the first of these remixes courtesy of Vancouver turned Londoner Friend and he gives us a lovely summer tune.
