Eats Tapes Sticky Buttons
- Words: Anna Balkrishna
- Label: Tigerbeat 6
Hunched over their arsenal of old-fangled synths and drum machines, Eats Tapes (Marijke Jorritsma and Gregory Zifcak) offers a tongue-in-cheek take on the current acid revival with their debut LP, Sticky Buttons. The album oozes a pogo-stick joviality in every burble of the duo‘s Roland TB-303, playing a delightful game of laser tag between manic 4/4 beats and wild-eyed melodies. There‘s a wink and nod on doodly, hyperactive tracks like "Supreme Master" and "Knightress," which play like analog in-jokes for the art-house glitcherati old enough to remember wielding glowsticks way back when. Sure, it‘s a shtick-but a loveable one!
