The Music Tapes stream Mary's Voice & exceed Kickstarter goal!

The Music Tapes have launched the stream of Mary's Voice via SoundCloud. Listen to the full album now before you can buy it in stores on September 4.

Mary's Voice described by Julian Koster:

I love sentimental melodies that you can hum with feeling. People warn against sentimentalizing or mythologizing the past. It’s any failure to mythologize the present that I think we have to be afraid of. This is a miracle. You are a miracle. Our lives are magic, and our times all the more so. Music proves it.
Stream Mary's Voice now at the Merge SoundCloud page

Mary’s Voice, the follow up to 2008’s acclaimed Music Tapes for Clouds and Tornadoesinaugurates a newly active phase in The Music Tapes’ evolution—with plans to tour the world in a circus tent later this year. To achieve these goals, The Music Tapes launched a Kickstarter page earlier this week to great response! The Kickstarter levels include autographed pillow cases, telephone concerts, and even the banjo that Julian used while recording Neutral Milk Hotel's In the Aeroplane Over the Sea. Beginning with a goal of $5000, they have already raised over $13,000!

Visit the Music Tapes' Kickstarter page to find out how you can help bring the Traveling Imaginary to life and check out Mary's Voice on LP with the special pop-up artwork.
