Taperecorder
Taperecorder
A chameleonic interpreter of genres.

Hailing from the more indie-centric side of electronic music, Marc Francis was the mastermind behind legendary house music collective Intergalactic Faerie Funk and the folkier Mossyrock. Now, this restless soul has been reincarnated under the name Taperecorder; creating swingy-swag dreamy-dirty dancefloor shoegaze rife with tales of odysseys, chance encounters, detours, and epiphanies.

With his ramshackle, bargain basement, punk rock approach to technology, Taperecorder's improv-heavy live shows are characterized by his signature squelchy beats infused with found sounds, live looping, acoustic doodlings, and the occasional singalong.

Bio

The two founding members of Old Monk were separated by thousands of miles when they began writing their first EP. It took years of swapping answering machine recordings and exchanging lo-fi demos over the internet to complete. The successful collaboration finally convinced drummer Ian Burns to leave his native Colorado, joining guitarist Joshua Carrafa in Brooklyn. The two dubbed their project Old Monk, and began playing around Manhattan and Brooklyn's underground venues. In need of a bassist, the two then enlisted Tsugumi Takashi and Old Monk became a trio. Joshua, Ian and Tsugumi create frenzied noisy rock and roll, built on solid pop backbones and piercing hooks. Old Monk is currently living in Brooklyn.
