Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

There isn't very much literature out on San Diego's Tape Deck Mountain,  but don't let that detract you. When you're releasing EPs and singles on cassette tape, that whole digital information trail tends to not be so effective.  If you're lucky, you might be able to get your hands on one of these cassette tapes by moseying on over to The Trunk Space when the touring band visits Phoenix next week.

"Dark" and "atmospheric" are words that pop up frequently when describing this lo-fi act. Employing distorted guitar riffs with steady drums and other faint noises, TDM couple distant and whimsical vocals to form brooding melodies that are both creepy and ambient all at the same time.

On Wednesday, July 6, they'll be joined by KNESSET and Of The Sky. Showtime starts at 7:30 p.m. Check out this MP3 of their track "P.I." as well as a pretty cool music video for "Scantrons" after the jump.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
