        For more than a decade, Matt Adams has been recording lo-fi pop tunes as The Blank Tapes on his trusty eight track. Originally from Southern California, Matt has since brought his vintage vibe up north to San Francisco. The band's latest record, 'Vacation', is their first for Oakland imprint Antenna Farm Records, and their first recorded with the aid of an actual studio. Matt recently brought his band to DC, and joined us during an amazing spring day out on the patio of The Lodge. Check out the band as they play "Don't Ever Get Old," from the new album, and "Beach Party."

          The Lost Ark Studio presents "Rockstar City" by The Blank Tapes, the latest single from the Lost Ark Studio Compilation - Vol. 05. Matt and Pearl left LA early one morning to make the trek down to our studio by the beach, so glad they did - definitely one of the more unique tracks ever in studio's compilation series, enjoy! The Blank Tapes is now and always has been Matt Adams, a soft-spoken kid from a Southern California suburb who learned to play practically every instrument a good garage band needs, and then started making beautifully idiosyncratic records on his trusty home eight-track because … well, why wait? When he first heard The Beatles and The Kinks, he knew he needed to make his own songs, too, and so in 2003 he did, with the kind of inspiration and confidence and personality you’d think have faded out in 1967. Now he releases his newest album “Vacation” on Oakland’s Antenna Farm Records, the first-ever full Blank Tapes album recorded somewhere besides Adams’ trusty 8-track and a record chasing down timelessness in its own time. Ever since the birth of the Blank Tapes, Adams has figured out the classic part of classic rock—the kind of songs that aren’t so much written as revealed. He’s secured a spot with the Danny Rose booking agency and debuted what he calls the most fully realized version of the Blank Tapes yet—a lean and pristine trio with D.A. Humphrey on bass and Charles on Moe Tucker-style drums. For the longest time the Blank Tapes has just been him, writing and recording as time and circumstance allow. But now, with a new album and a new line up, the Blank Tapes have finally become what he’s always wanted. Matt Adams - Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Drums, Percussion, Organ Pearl Charles - Vocals Recorded and Mixed by Mike Butler at The Lost Ark Studio Mastered by Jamal Ruhe at West West Side Music www.theblanktapes.com www.antennafarmrecords.com www.lostarkstudio.com www.facebook.com/lostarkstudio www.bandcamp.com/lostarkstudio www.youtube.com/lostarkstudio www.vimeo.com/lostarkstudio www.instagram.com/lostarkstudio www.twitter.com/lostarkstudio

                In a time where many surfers pay $3.000 for a surf trip in uncrowded waves, Ryan Burch and Cyrus Sutton set off on a thirty mile, eight day walk through San Diego, California, with no money in their pockets having to make their own boards, bamboo rickshaws, solar cookers, and hobo stoves. But what begins as a guide to taking a minimalist surfing journey, quickly becomes an examination of freedom vs alienation. With a fantastic soundtrack by The Blank Tapes and Mike McCarthy.

                    The Blank Tapes - "Silverado" little-videos.com April 19, 2009 Following Matt Adams down the setback of the Santa Cruz home his latest band-mates inhabit, past the overgrown ivy and salt bleached wooden fences, just a stone's throw from the beach and the bustling college town, you can't help but feel a bit transported. Fitting I suppose for a session with The Blank Tapes, Adams' musical alter-ego whose seemingly bottomless catalog of catchy hooks and head-bobbing sing-alongs always carries a bit of nostalgia. Fifteen minutes earlier we were at the Saturn Cafe, where the boys all shared in an ice cream sundae. They had just finished up a morning recording session for Steve Winchell's band, An Unconscious Collective. Matt plays guitar in Steve's band, and Steve plays bass in Matt's. They play in other friends' bands, too. It's kind of like a co-op of musicians helping each other out. Today, for The Blank Tapes, there was also Spencer Grossman on percussion and Aslan Rife (honey.moon.tree.) playing keyboard and melodica. It was one of those perfect sun-drenched California afternoons, that growing up here you might take for granted. They played four songs, three from the 2007, fittingly titled "Daydreams" album, and starting off with a new track called "I'm Back," which will be on their new album due out later this year. Kicking back on a bed in the backyard of their house (yes, an actual bed that someone actually sleeps on), in the dappled shade, with the distant chirping of birds and the slightest breeze, Adams opens with the line: "I don't miss the city." And you can't blame him. Camera: Elliot Glass, Allen Kelley Sound: Elliot Glass All Rights Reserved. Member of Ocean Studios. >>
