Tapes ‘N Tapes drummer Jeremy Hanson played an excellent set last week at Lincoln Hall. A lot of linear grooves, surprising odd-meters, and creative percussion. His kit sounded great. Best of all, he and the bass player were of one mind, locked-in. I get the vibe that these guys inspire each other. Like, they play just as hard when they’re jamming in the garage as when they’re playing to a packed theater. I’d heard their records, and enjoyed them well-enough. But seeing them live took my appreciation for them to the next level. The song I recorded, “Manitoba,” was towards the end of the set – I wish I would have caught some other ones, but the audio here is pretty good. It’s just a taste for you. Hope you enjoy it, and keep an eye out for them coming back through Chicago later in the fall.
