The Blank Tapes' New Album Is Free... For Now

​"Stamp 'Matt Adams' anywhere on your CD, and it's a guarantee the music contained therein is of a quality of the highest order." So wrote the Weekly's Rich Kane in 2005 about Adams, a Newport-Beach-based songwriter who has since moved to Oakland.

Ignore the quaintness of the quote (stamp on a CD? Like, a CD you can hold?) and instead get excited that Adams' band the Blank Tapes has put its new album, Home Away From Home, online available for free.

White Noise

(which is putting out the album), tells us that the free-download offer stands till the physical CD comes out. Which, as far as we can tell, is tomorrow, April 27. 

In other words: Get on it fast, here.
