A perfect Halloween treat, Memory Tapes has dropped the excellent longform instrumental, Walk Me Home, for our holiday enjoyment.

Thanks to ARAWA, this 17 minute slice of fried gold is absolutely FREE. Opening with eerie synth pulses and a latin-flavored rhythm section, the song shifts gears after 5 minutes into an ass-shaking robo-zombie groove momentarily until the halfway point. This is where the epic washes of balaeric keys chime in for a relaxing setup – after this point all hell breaks loose and Memory Tapes finally drops the hardcore stuff on us. Stuccato organ hammers and stiltwalking percussion swell and the song barrels toward its ending like a runaway freight train from Camp New Order, all quaking mass and blurred signposts until a quietly haunting outro reminds us of nighttime debaucheries and spooky old films.
Spin this monster before heading out tonight. You’ll be well fortified for whatever strange delights the twilight affords.

Thanks buddy! Just had to get this track out there on the big holiday.
Even more Memory Tapes to please the ears. Thanks a lot! :)
Indeed, liking the track? I think it’s one of the better pieces he’s made.. and still good after Halloween!
You check the fever ray halloween MIX? It is great as well.
Tweet all of your posts with some info (band, album, download) and a link. That should increase traffic.
I actually have it set up to automatically tweet my posts… it’s generic though, no artist/album info. Any way to do that? Or just manually?
AHA… I will look into that. I have mine auto send to facebook with an image and text from the article. I am sure there is something like that for tweeting.
Oh that’d be great – where do I do this auto w/ txt & image thing? And how do I do the facebook one? That’d be helpful…
