Nashville duo Jensen Sportag's latest work, showcased on their recent Pure Wet EP and featured on this Memory Tapes remix, is approaching that sweet spot of instant-recognition, that near meme-ability of cultivating a distinct sound. It's a subtle touch sometimes, but it's always there—the sliding guitar delay they've totally mastered or their playful way of working the bass. The Memory Tapes pairing is a good fit, adding cleaner vocals to the mix than usual, making it that much more meaningful when the instrumentation shines alongside it. Memory Tapes is releasing the remix as part of a free three-track Tour EP to commemorate this week's run of UK shows with Air France and Star Slinger.
