The Beautiful Darkness of WAR TAPES

Ryan Sez: I'm both excited and a bit intrigued by today's music project. With two very different approaches in their craft, War Tapes produce emotional, cinematic songs - while also jamming out dance-hall music for your next party. No matter what..... This music is Without a Doubt better than what your neighbor's kids are listening to.

Music You Should Know:


War Tapes are Neil Popkin (singer/rhythm guitarist), his sister Becca Popkin (bassist), Matt Bennett (lead guitar) and William Mohler (drummer).

RSL Calls it "Dark Pop" - And "we call it heart-quaking doom pop," says War Tapes' Neil Popkin (originally from Boston.) War Tapes' first full-length album, The Continental Divide, will be released next week (on May 26) by Sarathan Records (Seattle). War Tapes recently toured with RSL longtime favorites Tiger Army. Now they're on a tour with VNV Nation. Here's your chance to get in on this band early. Pick up the album (see below for the presale offer).
