Milky Way;" The 12th full-length release from Black Tape For a Blue
studio album expands upon their sweeping Art Rock aesthetic.
Songwriter and bandleader Sam Rosenthal’s electro-acoustic
atmospherics and foreboding, engaging lyricism focus the band as they
enter their 32nd year with an album encompassing powerful personal and
Non-binary porn star Mercy West portrays
the androgynous alien traveler in Rosenthal’s photography; the
booklet contain 10 pages of striking photos the duo shot at locations
throughout Oregon. “The photos externalize the feelings of
isolation, alienation and longing within the lyrics,” Rosenthal
says. “Mercy’s character is a stark representation of our
struggles, lost within a larger self-defined world that work to limit
our true nature.”
"The seven tracks on To Touch the Milky Way
showcase the prominent darkwave act’s distinctively ethereal
textures and haunting melodic atmospheres, led by the alluring vocals
of Danielle Herrera and Michael Plaster. With chilling layers of
synths, distant drums, and acoustic and electric guitars that evoke
the swirling and introspective ambience audiences have come to love
from Black Tape for a Blue Girl."
“Reconnect with and reflect on the larger legacy of
Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s emotive whirlwind.”
