New: Memory Tapes – Today Is Our Life {2}

In September 2009, Memory Tapes delivered a dance-pop gem with Seek Magic — an album that no one saw coming, but one that was ubiquitously loved. Fifteen months later, new music from the NJ-based producer could not possibly arrive soon enough.

My eyes lit up last week when I saw frontman Dayve Hawk tweet “New Year // New Album.” One week later and we already have a sample of things to come!

Check out the new single “Today Is Our Life” from that forthcoming second LP. The track is also available on the Love SIC Disco compilation.

Around 1:04, I’m fairly certain that I hear the opening synth line from Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark.” Perhaps a small ode to the most famous celebrity to ever come out of Jersey? (Aside from Snooki, unfortunately.) Respect for The Boss.

    That’s totally The Boss!

    Decent start to the new album. Hopefully he has some more dark, bass heavy stuff like “Bicycle” and “Stop Talking” rolled up his sleeves for us. Let me know when you see this album pop up.
