Report from the Art Department: The Music Tapes in Toronto

Our art director Maggie who lives in Toronto sent us this report from her recent visit with The Music Tapes

I met up with The Music Tapes' Julian Koster and Robbie Cucchiaro in Toronto's Kensington Market for pie. Down the street, they have been putting the finishing touches on their next project. They brought along a copy of the LP package for their out-of-print First Imaginary Symphony for Nomad as we spun ideas for a beautiful package to hold their next album.

Two hours in the company of these kind and radiant souls is like getting a Christmas present in March. You can have half an hour of Music Tapes stories, songs, and year-round Christmas magic through this video of their NPR Tiny Desk Concert recorded last December.

Visit the Merge store for all of your Music Tapes needs. If it's pie you're after, it's Wanda's Pie in the Sky you want.
