Mothertapes share "Do Make Say" from forthcoming debut

Portland, OR band Mothertapes premiered the first song from their forthcoming debut album recently via PopMatters. The synth-pop-prog hook-laden tune “Do Make Say” is available to hear and share HERE. (Direct Soundcloud HERE / Free MP3 D/L HERE.)

Mothertapes’ self-titled album will be released October 2 via the Self Group creative collective.
At the heart of Mothertapes’ music lies vivid melodic themes, heavy beats, and lush layers of programmed and live-looped instrumentation wrapped around intense guitar hooks and vocals. A live Mothertapes performance is an impressive show of workmanship in which Pete Bosack and Tommy Franzen build each song from the ground up, creating the sonic footprint of a much larger band. Rather than ceding control to the bloodless clockwork of sequenced loops, the band breathes life into the technology, eliciting an elastic, dynamic quality that has drawn the admiration of critics and earned the band a loyal following.
Astute listeners will notice the influence of artists as varied as Animal Collective, Radiohead, Matmos, St. Vincent, Battles, and Maps and Atlases. But such comparisons serve only as reference points for this thoroughly original duo. After ten years of collaboration, Bosack and Franzen regard Mothertapes as the culmination of their work together, a breakthrough project resulting in forward-looking music that is both artistically ambitious and highly accessible.
