As reported in Pitchfork and Largehearted Boy, Minneapolis band Tapes ‘N Tapes have a record deal with XL Recordings. The Loon will be re-released on XL in July. There will be a sizeable tour kicked off in June. The seem to have lost their bass player in the process, but this isn’t the first lineup change for this band. They are an example of the incredible PR power of music blogs. In a Pioneer Press article, their band manager Keri Wiese is quoted saying, “It started pretty much right after the first blog wrote about the band in November. We got a call from Capitol Records the next day.” Even playbsides.com got caught up in the furvor– I reviewed the Loon back in March.
