The Blank Tapes Celebrate the Holiday Blues in "No Gifts This Xmas"
The Holiday Blues. We all know that feeling, right? And here, on new song "No Gifts This Xmas," the Blank Tapes deliver a rather perfect ode to gloomy cheer, ugly-sweater bummers, and festive malaise -- with just the right amount of implied winking. The acoustic opening, lazy tempo, and drawling vocals of Matt Adams all make for an easy good time.
The Blank Tapes are here to celebrate your bummer.
The Blank Tapes recently moved back to L.A. from their longtime home up here, but we still count 'em as local, because we want to, and because this year's full-length, Vacation, came out on Oakland's Antenna Farm records. Also, the band is playing the Chapel next Wednesday, Dec. 18 -- when "No Gifts This Xmas" should damn good. Listen and download here:
