Tape‘s third release, Rideau, changes from swampy to serene, as if scraping fingernails through the dirt only to find a rushing stream underneath. There is a distinct flow to the album, which blends a variety of mariachi-sounding acoustics with electronic blips and soft, resonating echoes. Produced by German musician Marcus Schmickler in Cologne, Rideau leaves listeners craving the deep calm and reflection that only a new year-or a refreshing new record-can bring.
