The Magnificent Tape Band: Patterns In My Mind

"Haunting & beautiful track! The instrumental is sick too! Will make a fine 45!"
- Floating Points

Leeds soul and funk label ATA Records are proud to announce the debut 45 release from The Magnificent Tape Band. Available on 7" vinyl and Download from 29th of January, this single is an atmospheric slice of leftfield soul.

Taking inspiration from the more abstract end of the soul spectrum that has been a richly tapped vein for hip-hop producers, The Magnificent tape band aim to create an evocative tapestry of sound that pulls together psychedelic soul with British library music to create a distinctly dramatic sounding record. Recorded on original '60s equipment, using vintage instruments, "Patterns in my mind" immediately brings to mind the more experimental psychedelic soul records of the late 60s/early seventies by incorporating driving clavinet, loping drums and swirling organ alongside Rachel Modest's ethereal vocals.

The B-side "Golden Shades" is an instrumental re-working of the vocal A-Side with Rachel's vocals replaced with a new melody played on Bass Clarinet and Vibraphone with an atmospheric chorus merging organ and vocals.


"ATA do it again with another slice of soulful library influenced brilliance. Rachel Modest is a real find."
- Dom Servini, Wah Wah 45s


The Magnificent Tape Band are the alter egos of ATA Records founders Neil Innes & Pete Williams, who were the creative driving force behind last years debut album by The Sorcerers, for which they wrote and produced all the tracks as well as contributing bass and guitar performances.

Sheffield born, Rachel Modest developed her unique vocal ability within the churches and gospel choirs of her local community. Now based in Leeds she has developed a powerful and soulful vocal style that takes inspiration from artists such as Madeleine Bell, Dee Dee Warwick, Dusty Springfield and on "Patterns In My Mind" delivers a performance that occasionally resembles the falsetto of The Delfonics William Hart.

Support comes from Dom Servini, Shawn Lee & Adrian Younge who gave it his seal of approval on listening to it recently.

Track Name: Patterns In My Mind
This Summer Breeze
Blows through my windowpane
Sweet summer breeze
Shows me that I live again
The frosted window
Makes Patterns In My mind

So go ahead
Blow summer breeze
Try to explain
What's happening to me
My eyes are closed
I cannot see
What this place
Keeps washing over me

The leaves are turning
A lovely golden shade
And I'm imagining
A musical parade
As this summer breeze
Blows through my windowpane

So go ahead
Blow summer breeze
Try to explain
What's happening to me
My eyes are closed
I cannot see
What this place
Keeps washing over me

Washing over me
Washing over me
Washing over me
Washing over me
