Fill in the Blank

23 Mar

If you’re looking for great bluesy, folk, retro music take a stop and listen to The Blank Tapes “Somebody New.”

Simple instrumentation (a guitar, what sounds like a banjo, and a harmonica) are all that are needed on this track which mimics the simplicity and frankness of the lyrics.

“Lonely. Please don’t make me lonely.
Please don’t make me lonely for you.
Or I’ll find somebody new”

The tune, in its and twang of strings and Matt Adams voice, brings forth echoes of The Lovin’ Spoonful’s “Daydream.”

Both are the type of songs you can imagine yourself in a rural part of the world, among the simple pleasures of life, sprawled across the grass listening to.

And for that, be thankful

Discography: Landfair (2009), Daydreams (2009), Invisible Colors (2011), Vacation (2013), Home Away From Home (2014)
