Our Halloween Gift to You: AD020 and AD021 Now Available.

“My friend’s grandfather used to say the problem with schools is that they teach kids to think, rather than ever doing anything. And my old social studies teacher used to say that the problem with science is that it is already too far gone in its own opinion. Under the pressures of thought and conception and unabashedly influenced by society and the world, Talk Midway has introduced the aspect of ‘reflection’ onto Already Dead Tapes and Records, while still leaving the ‘as is’ as ‘as is.’

Patrick Nylen, (the sole musician in Talk Midway,) is New York based and proclaims himself to “reflect diy values.” A very meditative mix and experimental noise, each album demonstrates the craft of ambient sounds layered over tracks of samplings from societal influences, global events – and personal dealings with it all. Subtly manipulative digital and analog whirs, with a few traditional instruments recorded on a couple of tracks. Like I said, he is not so much as making a suggestive statement as he is simply tapping into the unpronounced illusions and effects the world is having on us. They are songs of reflection rather than opinion, which is something many artists struggle with when expressing feelings.

A great album that we hope you’ll enjoy as this year comes to an end – we definitely look forward to see what will come next for Patrick Nylen and Talk Midway.”

“The Boston based band, The Blue Dress is definitely one that understands working instruments together. The Blue Dress has the sound of experienced members, who have finally found a niche for where they belong as a band, and seeing the importance of every sound and every contribution. A great list of songs for the fall season entering winter, with poetic lyrics and steady guitar rhythms blended beautifully over accompanying instruments. The sound of The Blue Dress is definitely an expressive one that Already Dead Tapes and Records is happy to release at such a perfect season. Hope you enjoy.”
