Tapes ‘n Tapes were the first band I got into because of that fickle, nervous monster called hype, but if there’s one thing you can say about Tapes ‘n Tapes near-flawless first record The Loon, it’s that hype made good. Upcoming third effort Outside, coming January 11 2011, has a Wes Anderson-y cover (yellow Futura!) and a first single, “Freak Out,” that hearkens back to the great energy of the best tracks on The Loon. If there’s one thing this band can do well, it’s build effortlessly to a last minute or so of absolute, necessary insanity; “Freak Out” is no exception. Grab the MP3 below:
