Here’s another new wonderful track from the Music Tapes. “Playing ‘Evening'” is one of the most upbeat tracks from their upcoming album, Mary’s Voice. It’s composed of lo-fi percussive chords, cymbal crashes and a stomping rhythm that recalls their usual stage prop, the 7-Foot-Tall Metronome.
Speaking of the Music Tapes’ fantastical live shows, frontman Julian Koster and co. are looking to make it even more whimsical. They’ve started a Kickstarter campaign (and already exceeded their goal), which offers fans exclusive music and other prizes in exchange for a donation. The band is trying to raise money to tour the country with a circus tent and “many exciting new Music Tapes amusements and contraptions.”
Listen to “Playing ‘Evening'” below, and stream the whole album after the jump. Mary’s Voice comes out September 4 on Merge.
