To celebrate my very talented friends, Radiation City signing to Portland label Tender Loving Empire, I decided I would share the other half of Rad City’s story with you, Apes Tapes Records, as well as their current Kickstarter project to support their upcoming tour.
The artist run cassette tape label Apes Tapes, released Rad City’s upcoming record The Hands That Take You on cassette this past February, and for months have been secretly curating some of the finest unknown tunes festering in Portland’s musical underbelly. Just recently, their tape fell into the laps of record label Tender Loving Empire, which they haven’t stopped rewinding and replaying since.
In August of this year, Radiation City will be embarking on a national tour in support of their debut album, The Hands That Take You. They created a Kickstarter to help fund their travels. Rewards for supporting their project include professional landscape design, dinner parties done by a pro, original songs, plus lots of other goodies. Help make this goal happen!
