Memory Tapes at Williamsburg Waterfront in 2010 (more by Benjamin Lozovsky)
Electro-indie popper Davye Hawk aka Memory Tapes is prepping Player Piano, his follow up to 2009's Seek Magic, for a July 5 release via Carpark. He'll go on a short European tour the day of the release in support of the album, but first will play a single US show at Mercury Lounge on July 1. Tickets go on sale this Friday (5/27) at noon, with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (5/25).
He released the first single from the album, the disco-y "Wait In The Dark," which can be downloaded above. An early version of the track "Today Is Our Life," which is also on the new album, appeared earlier this year on a "Love SIC Disco" compilation. The video for this track can be watched below.
Three of Memory Tapes' European dates are with Star Slinger who also just announced a headlining NYC show.
