Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). This album is a nearly seamless transition from Tapes n Tapes' nearly perfect "the loon" album. Not quite radio friendly (but close) like the loon, but c'mon guys, these are amazingly good guitar-driven pop songs.

Tapes 'n Tapes didn't change their approach radically for Walk It Off - their nasally vocals, angular guitars, and keyboard doodles are all in place - but that urgency is missing, and it makes a difference. The band worked with Dave Fridmann on this album, and while teaming a quintessential indie rock producer like him with a band of indie rock classicists like Tapes 'n Tapes might seem like a good idea on paper, it doesn't quite work.

Tapes ‘n Tapes’ 2006 debut, The Loon, was met with a kind of begrudging appreciation. Josh Grier and his Minnesotan bandmates had sewed a patchwork of indie rock’s greatest moments: sly, angular guitars, abstractly emotional vocals, and frenetic hing. It’s hardly snarky to say that even fans of Loon will approach Walk It Off expecting to be disappointed.
