Alaskan Tapes - The Times Are Tired


Review: Alaskan Tapes - The Times Are Tired


There’s a beautiful and peaceful guitar melody that opens Alaskan Tapes latest single, “The Times Are Tired.” Something within these notes carries with it an empty and lonesome feeling but lovely nonetheless. As the song progresses, an intimate string section appears and add a new layer of depth to the track, creating quite the warm and nostalgic atmosphere.

Perhaps it’s the post-rock feels coming from this track but within seconds of listening to it, I was instantly hooked. I’ve always been a fan of Alaskan Tapes and with each new release I’m exposed to a different and refreshing ambient soundscape. “The Times Are Tired” is an intimate piece and one that is perfect for a rainy day listen.
