Tired Tape Machine: Between raindrops (2012)

A medias entre encargo musical cinematográfico, música incidental, mero entretenimiento y, desde luego, búsqueda de eso que llamamos paz interior por medio de la belleza, surge este Between raindrops (2012), el disco de Tired Tape Machine, que no es más que el proyecto unipersonal de Petter Lindhagen, multiinstrumentista sueco que ha facturado un disco sorprendente, donde se tocan todos los palos, desde el sonido más clásico hasta el más experimental o el de mayor influencia jazzística. Un disco instrumental que lo mismo podría pasar por la etiqueta de Nuevo-Clásico que por la de Post-Rock. En esa complejidad quizás radique su atractivo, además de que podría ser la banda sonora -otoñal- de esa película que te gustaría disfrutar en la intimidad.

Tired Tape Machine – Between raindrops (2012)

“It’s no coincidence that Jose Gonzalez’ music was dropped in favour of Tired Tape Machine for the final scene in Swedish director Mikel Cee Karlssons film Hälsningar från Skogen (the soundtrack, released on Kningdisk, also included artists like Peter Broderick and Tape). Petter Lindhagen’s one man band truly personifies the wave of new music that finds its own voice without needing vocal chords. A wave of experimental instrumental music that strikes a balance between sadness and hope, chaos and order.
On his debut album Somewhere Safe, Petter Lindhagen has single handedly written, produced and played all the instruments; a DIY-attitude that is also evident in the lovingly realized physical manifestation of the release.
In tune with his entrepreneurial spirit, the album is self-released, digitally and – as the name might suggest– on cassette!“There is a certain analogue romance that comes with the thought of this album being played on its namesake“ Petter laughs. His description is not far-fetched. On Somewhere Safe xylophones are combined with melancholic harmonicas as well as acoustic guitars. It is cinematic quietness with grandeur.
“It might sound like a cliché but the music I make is a mix of pretty much everything that I listen to”, Stockholm resident Petter Lindhagen says. With one foot in popmusic, Petter Lindhagen makes little genre experiments without ever losing a sense of the whole. Somewhere Safe is the sound of a truly unique artist who has created a sonic world of his own. Step right in” (
