about

"Towards Thee Infinite Beat: The pleasantly weird and infinitely creative Future Ape Tapes have made available their new record Figure Eights as a free download. Recorded live to four-track back in May of this year, the seven-track album advances the identity of the group by huge leaps as opposed to the baby steps taken in the past. Whereas previous Future Ape Tapes worked in a fairly solid hip-hop paradigm, albeit an elastic one, Figure Eights erases the group's entire drawing board. I could easily tell you how it sounds like the group drew influence from King Tubby, Throbbing Gristle, Fela Kuti, Lee Perry, et al., but the fact is that I have no idea what the Future Ape Tapes have been listening to, and nothing on Figure Eights will speak directly to any of these possible explanations. All I can say is, I really dig this, and you’ve got nothing to lose by giving it a spin." (Gordon Lamb~Threats and Promises/Flagpole Magazine)
