Burnt Tapes release a new single

Burnt Tapes have a new single, released yesterday, called "Greek Wood" (listen after the jump), recorded in late 2019 with producer Daly George (Creeper, Milk Teeth, Boston Manor, Darko).

Vocalist/guitarist Pan says of the song: "'Greek Wood'" is a coming of age song in all the wrong ways, lost youth, lost love, lost time. It is not a penis metaphor, although it could be if you want it to be."

The song is released on digital platforms via Wiretap Records (USA) and Lockjaw Records (EU/UK). Burnt Tapes previously released Never Better.

Max Stern (Signals Midwest) solo

Max Stern, who told us about his new solo project in Pass The Mic 2019, has shared a video to "Water Tower." The song shows a range of influences, including indie projects with a singer-songwriter flourishes, such as The Weakerthans.

"I wanted to write a pretty positive song about the flickering moment upon waking, before you look at your phone, before you remember your responsibilities, before you wrap yourself in your identity that carries you through the day" Stern says of this new song. "What would it feel like to harness that feeling and to be able to control it?...It’s not a novel concept by any means, but I get really wrapped up in social media as the “comparison machine” and it tends to suck the joy out of a lot of what I do if I’m not careful."

Stern also plays with Signals Midwest, Meridian, and Timeshares. Watch the video after the jump.
