The Blank Tapes ‘Other Places’

Yet again, Shindig! premiere some of the finest nu-psych coming out of America. THE BLANK TAPES’ new LP Candy will be released on June 29th and a Euro tour will follow – dates below.

The Blank Tapes is the moniker of LA based multi-instrumentalist, Matt Adams, who has produced over a dozen albums of ’60s inspired surf-pop, folk-rock and soul on Volcom, Burger Records, Antenna Farm, White Noise, and others.  Along with his band mates, The Blank Tapes have toured throughout America, Brazil, Europe, & Japan. Matt is also the artist behind his band’s posters & album covers. The video for ‘Other Places’ was recorded with Eric D Johnson (of Fruit Bats) in his old home studio in Portland, Oregon. It was shot and edited by Taylor Bonin in LA (photographer/videographer for The Growlers) featuring cameos by Veronica Bianqui, Brandon Graham of Dream Phases and Warren Thomas of The Abigails.
