Memory Tapes changes mind, will tour in 2010

placeholder image

    Memory Tapes is the name of the one-man band of New Jersey native Dayve Hawk. Over the last few months, following acclaimed remixes of Yeasayer’s “Ambling Alp” and Midnight Juggernauts’ “The New Technology”, the whole electro-friendly Memory Tapes project has garnered quite a bit of attention. So much so in fact that he recently released his debut LP, Seek Magic, on Acephale and now finds himself gearing up for a global tour.

    Now, one thing you should know about Mr. Hawk is that he has never been all that into the idea of touring. “I don’t really go to that many places… I live out here in Jersey and record and spend time with my four-year-old daughter,” the musician recently told Pitchfork. But he’ll break out of his comfort zone when the first batch of scheduled UK dates get underway. In February, Hawk will return home for the first ever U.S. dates for Memory Tapes. The current run includes performances on both the East and West Coast before he once again crosses the Atlantic for more European fun. An appearance at South by Southwest 2010 is also on the itinerary.
