The Blank Tapes

THE BLANK TAPES is the moniker of Los Angeles & San Francisco based musician & artist, Matt Adams, who has produced over a dozen albums of 1960’s inspired psychedelic-surf-pop-folk-rock on an old 8 track cassette tape recorder in various garages, basements, sheds & bedrooms across the California Coast. Lately he’s been polishing up his sound in pro recording studios as can be heard on his latest 7” single “1000 Leather Tassels / Mr. Mister” released by VOLCOM & 2013’s full length VACATION released by Antenna Farm Records/Burger Records. Along with his band mates, they’ve toured throughout America, Brazil, Europe, & Japan. Other releases have been on White Noise, 20-Sided Records, Curly Cassettes, Dome of Doom, and VOW Records. Matt is also the artist behind his band’s posters & album covers.
