Sounds like a frightened soul ready for departure to the next plane of existence.

Biography

ETR was originally a bedroom project for Phil McDonald. The offer of playing a festival with the likes of Mercury Rev / British Sea Power / Bob Log III really appealed to the young mind. So, just one problem then... Start a band.

After a few cigarettes, a few too many coffee's and a wee while on the phone, Electric Tape Recorder was a band.

With influences such as the Pixies / Johnny Cash / Kurt Vonnegut / Dante Alighieri / Black Keys it happens that ETR's sound is made up of stark, constant drumming paired with a chunky guitar playing proper psychedelic riffs and topped with a vocal delivery that sounds like a frightened soul ready for departure to the next plane of existence.

All that and some interesting lyrics that sound somewhere between a sea shanty and a bar-hopping death trip in BukowskiÂ’s LA.
