The quirky, experimental songwriter Julian Koster, who records under the moniker The Music Tapes, surprised fans by releasing a new digital EP today, June 14, titled Purim's Shadows (The Dark Tours of the World).
The EP is available to download via the usual digital outlets, but if you order it from Merge Records, you have the option of getting a special Music Tapes kazoo. The special kazoo package includes an extra song not included on the standard version of the EP.
Stream the entire EP now via Merge's website. Check out photos and review of The Music Tapes sets in 2009 at XX Merge and on the caroling tour HERE and HERE.
