Empty Heads - Normality (2017)

The part of us that grew up in the 90's really, really likes Empty Heads. They had us hooked from "High & Dry," the first song on their first tape, and have been coaxing us along with their angsty, loud guitar rock. Chris Dadge's recording gives this a bit more of a Sebadoh-meets-Dinosaur-Jr-in-a-dark-basement feel, and that's totally okay by us.

If you missed the excellent Three Documentaries series from CJSW and Guillaume Carlier earlier this year, here's the piece on Empty Heads:

Get the  tape from the Empty Heads bandcamp or Debt Offensive Records.

Thank you very much for all the classic Calgary tapes! By the way, do you azimuth adjust the cassettes when you transfer them? If not, that would explain some of the tapes sounding muddy.

*googles: azimuth adjust cassettes*

Nope. We learned something new today!

I transfer tapes a lot at home using azimuth adjusting. It makes a world of difference in sound. If you can't figure it out and want me to show you how to do it or send you some detailed instructions email me at beauzaemail at I live in Calgary. Cheers!
