A quick album preview here for the upcoming April release of Heartache & Fear by Tape The Radio. This is the title track from the three-piece's debut album, and it sounds pretty good to me. It's moody, mellow rock with a decent nod to its title in the lyrics, which I always like to see.
Tape The Radio are on Hi-Tone Music and consist of vocalist-guitarist Malcolm Carson, the London singer-songwriter who heads up the trio. Bassist Ben Caruso hails from San Francisco, while Canadian drummer Bryan McLellan completes the line-up. It's a simple instrumental arrangement that throws the focus nicely on to the music itself. Heartache & Fear is due to be the opening track on the album, which should set the stage for a pretty good set of tracks to follow, I'd say. I'll be keeping an eye out for this one come mid-April.
