The Fashionably Late Top 60 of 2013: #34 – Tape Waves

When it comes to year-end lists, y'all know I don't mess around. I don't post my picks from the previous year for weeks after the next year has started. In 2013 there was a bounty of music that entered the world that made me deliriously happy to be blessed with the sense of sound. So I have pondered, marinated, and contemplated for weeks. Music from 2013 has been digested for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (and yes, even dessert). And now, friends, it's time. Time to share with you what I consider the cream of one heck of a crop indeed. You might see things omitted here that you think should be on a Best Of list. This list isn't what I think you want to read. This list is what I feel about last year. These are records and songs that really mattered to me for one reason of another. If it's not here, I either didn't spend enough time with it or just didn't love it quite enough. A big, big thank you to all of the artists who created the music on this list, the music that I fell in love with last year.

WHO: Tape Waves

WHAT: Tape Waves EP

WHEN: July 2013

WHERE: Box Bedroom Rebels

WHY: Hailing from the historically-rich city of Charleston, South Carolina, Tape Waves makes music that is decidedly lovely, much like their stomping grounds. Falling somewhere between the effervescent Kiwi jangle of bands like The Clean and the breathily sweet dreamy shimmy of Fuzzy favorites Eternal Summers, this four-song EP is a delightful kiss of summer, a promise of good times to come. Kim Hart and Jarod Weldin are definitely a pair to watch.   

MY JAMS: All of ‘em!
