“The sunny sounds of L.A.’s Blank Tapes, who yoke a garage-pop sensibility to ferocious rock riffs.” -THE NEW YORKER
“The Blank Tapes. Full of lo-fi rock refrains you can get down to, “I’m Back” is the perfect tune to soundtrack your beach party” -UNDER THE RADAR
“Matt Adams and his band premiere perfect summer pop. The Blank Tapes are turning their sun folk sound into some of this summer’s best indie guitar pop, capturing the sound of golden West Coast pop like fire and lightening trapped in a jar.” -IMPOSE MAGAZINE
“#3 out of the TOP 5 LA Garage Rock Bands! 2012” -LA WEEKLY
“We discovered this lo-fi unsigned band – which somehow evokes Belle and Sebastian, Pavement, and the Black Keys – in a San Fran coffeehouse (just like the old days.)" ROLLING STONE
