What the hell, let's go for the hat trick. Tapes N Tapes, whose sophomore effort, Walk It Off, was released on Tuesday, to middling massacres. (It would seem that the blogosphere, much like Japanese Macaques, occasionally eat their young). But matters such as these are of no concern to Josh Grier and company, who are promoting the shit out of Walk It Off. Yesterday, they were on Conan, but one day before that, the band was playing an in-store at the Virgin Records in Union Square. Footage of that show has shown up on the YouTube, and you can watch the band run through well-executed versions of first single, the stuttering strut of "Hang Them All" and album track "Headshock", which is more of carefree, swinging and Pixes-esque.
In other Tapes news, they're playing First Ave, RIGHT NOW! OMG! The band also played in a more intimate setting when they stopped by the offices of The Current to take Walk for a stroll down MPR-lane. All of the songs played at the in-store were played at the Current, but if you want to listen to them anyway, click here.
Walk It Off is out now.
