Tapes 'n Tapes is an indie rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Formed in the winter of 2003 at Carleton College, the band has released four albums. First came the self-released Tapes 'n Tapes EP in 2004, followed by the full-length release, The Loon, on Ibid Records in 2005. The band signed to XL Recordings and re-released The Loon on July 25, 2006.

Tapes ‘n Tapes graces the beginning to their debut album with an attempt to take us back to visit Modest Mouse circa 1995 on Just Drums. Guitarist and vocalist Josh Grier (aka ‘Tapes 1’) cradles zany lyrics over the jolting drums: Forget calls to teacher/Forget calls in line/We fall off furry creatures/Fall off all the time. Who really knows if the words actually make sense" It’s all part of this cockeyed genre. If you can understand Josh through his hazy barks, the opening lines may pique some interest while hinting off at the band’s quirky ways sure to come. Being in such a kooky genre has its ups and downs. For instance, "Insistor" rises above the highlights of The Loon, boasting in its rural glory. The rustic and bare guitars fuel up the drums to induce a rhythm that sounds like bluegrass on steroids. The intermediate production gives real character to the bands' sound, and "Insistor" establishes itself an example. The same goes for "Omaha" which makes its way to being a steady sleeper-hit with an invitation for a serene sing-along.

Named because of the tapes and tapes of material that they initially wrote and recorded, Tapes & Tapes aren’t proprietors and progenitors of a new genre or a new scene. There’s no need for stylistic hybridization here; Tapes & Tapes write direct, commanding indie rock songs that are nearly impossible not to like. The eleven songs that make up The Loon are warm and fuzzy, yet angular and abrasive. They recall Spoon and Pavement as much as The Pixies and The Talking Heads, and, at times, even Wire. Its sequencing is impeccable, as well.

Tapes 'n Tapes wear a wide mash of influences on their scuffed sleeves - the various Pavements of 1980s lo-fi and indie, if you're asking.

Tapes 'n Tapes kneel before Pavement, Wire, Beach Boys, and Pixies, bearing their influences more publically than notebook logo sketches. While strong faith is always convincing, Tapes 'n Tapes succeed by practice as much as passion, articulating a conventional vocabulary with rare erudition. As such, The Loon brings something for everybody. Not that the band's diplomacy is a kowtow: Loving is just their quaint way of asking for love.

At first, Tapes 'n Tapes' much buzzed-about debut album, The Loon, plays like a CliffsNotes of indie rock, serving up the shouty, snotty sound of early Modest Mouse ("Just Drums"), Pavement's laid-back angles and historically astute lyrics ("The Iliad"), and the surreal strumminess of Come on Pilgrim-era Pixies ("Cowbell. But just because Tapes 'n Tapes broadcast their influences so clearly throughout The Loon doesn't make it a bad album. Actually, the built-in familiarity of their sound is kind of comforting, particularly on pleasantly meandering pop songs like "Buckle" and "Jakov's Suite," and "Manitoba," a woozy ballad that recalls the Walkmen at their prettiest (and tipsiest). And, as The Loon unfolds, it shows Tapes 'n Tapes developing a style of their own - or, at least, a more distinctive take on the indie bedrock on which their sound is built.

Tapes ’N Tapes: The Loon. In 2006, indie is moving faster than the speed of light. That’s indie, not rock’n’roll, not music, definitely not glamorous indie rock’n’roll. Before them, The White Stripes boasted a superstar bigger than his lo-fi shackles. Tapes ’N Tapes boast none of that drama and don’t seem to want it. Instead, ‘The Loon’ is a (yes) quirky, low-key, lo-fi delight, but it feels like an anomaly, like it’s slipped through to the big boys’ playground and that exposure to sunlight could suck out its cultness and destroy it. Which is, of course, complete bollocks, because the world needs to hear a record as spooky and as special as this.

Tapes 'N' Tapes The Loon US CD album. Another day, another hyped indie band. You could look at it that way, or you could absorb the sprawling, slightly incoherent, and highly galvanizing sounds that populate this debut album and admit-as everyone else has so far-that Tapes 'n Tapes have really got it going on. The Loon is not the kind of album that grabs you and shakes you by the throat. It’s not as immediate as The Magic Numbers, or as quirky as Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, but then neither is it quite as transparent

Tapes ‘n Tapes : The Loon. Named because of the tapes and tapes of material that they initially wrote and recorded, Tapes & Tapes aren’t proprietors and progenitors of a new genre or a new scene. There’s no need for stylistic hybridization here; Tapes & Tapes write direct, commanding indie rock songs that are nearly impossible not to like. Its sequencing is impeccable, as well. Drums and Jakov’s are, without a doubt, two of the best tracks on the record, yet The Loon, with all of its ups and downs and changes in tempo and volume, maintains a fantastic level of quality songwriting.
