Apostrophic – These Old Tapes
[Tastefaker Records]

Vancouver electronic producer Apostrophic begins this bone crushing EP with a seven-minute track that conjures the image of a single passenger on a sinking ship as the horns blare, the hull is torn to shreds and the passenger sinks into the murky deep.

These Old Tapes is a grand, Hans Zimmer-esque operatic record that comes on as destructive until it eventually simmers into a serene calmness as notes are drawn out, backed by hypnotic, echoing percussion.

Exciting and satisfying, These Old Tapes is confident and is a strong contender for one of the best Vancouver electronic EPs this year.
