Waves of distortion and the hum of a tape machine wash over you, as swirling guitars and nearby cicadas suddenly disintegrate into a wide-open space. While unique, there’s something familiar about “Forward”, the first collaboration between Marc Neibauer (My Home is the Sea) and Austin Potter (Tapes & Tubes). Longtime fans of one another’s work, “Forward” didn’t come together until Potter migrated from the Pacific Northwest to the Philadelphia suburbs. Originally written in the summer of 2015, on the day the pair met for the first time in person, “Forward” sat on the backburner, unfinished for over a year. One sunny day the next August, inspiration hit and the song was finally completed. Expect more releases from the pair in 2017 on Potter’s label, Safe Harbor.
