While it’s killer Biscuit cover may look like it was lifted from an old rave flyer, Anthony Naples’ newly dropped Take Me With You cassette is actually a concerted after-hours affair. Meant to be consumed like a mixtape—hence the Good Morning Tapes hook, rather than a traditional label—the 12 tracks on here are a tease at times, ending as soon as they’ve gotten started and hinting at heady ambient-house, anodyne New Age, and hallucinatory trip-hop. But they’re also supremely satisfying, rewarding any repeat listens rather than revealing its weak spots.
According to a press release, the Brooklyn producer had a lot on his mind while he was making his second proper LP, including memories of everything from Mount Eerie’s old band The Microphones to the top-notch experimental tracks of Arthur Russell, Suzanne Ciani, and Panda Bear. It shows. Free of filler and full of raw feeling, this record sounds like someone who figured out a way to finally be free.
