In 2009 the former Hail Social front man Dayve Hawke a.k.a Memory Tapes released the Pitchfork endorsed blog phenomenon Seek Magic. The main track on the album, “Bicycle”, with its melancholic synths and New Order-esq guitar, quickly became one of my favorite tracks of that year. Since then Memory Tapes released Player Piano, an album that left me wondering if maybe Memory Tapes was only a short-lived succes for Dayve Hawke. On December 4 it’s time for a new album, Grace/Confusion, and by sound of the eight-and-a-half minute album cut “Sheila”, it sounds exciting enough to anticipate a more proper executed album than the tedious and airless Player Piano. “Shiela” is chaotic with at least a dozen unforseen shifts and turns and detailed compositional surprises. Just as with several of the tracks on Seek Magic, it has the power to unlock hidden memories and leaves you with a strange unease.
