CD vs Vinyl? Vinyl vs CD? Wax Tailor says why not both….all in one!

CD vs Vinyl? Vinyl vs CD? Wax Tailor says why not both….all in one!

Always immersed in the ever long debate of which is better, CD or Vinyl, Wax Tailor wonders why can’t we have both all in one. For the lead single off his third album, ‘Say Yes’ he has devised a solution to the quandry by releasing it in a format aptly titled CD-VINYL which can be played in a CD player as well as on a turntable and is packaged with the album exclusively at Borders retailers.

Out on Le Plan
September 22, 2009

Wax Tailor’s first two albums drew comparisons to the likes of RJD2, Portishead, Avalanches, DJ Shadow, and he is ready to drop his third and best to date, “In the Mood for Life”. He masters the art of reinventing oneself, and although his signature sound of perfectly blended Hip-Hop, Soul, Funk, Jazz and 60s Pop is immediately identifiable, this new album establishes a true evolution both in terms of production and song writing. String instruments, which were once just extras, now assume a more prominent role, and where genres once crossed path from one track to another, they now collide within a track . The resulting sound is denser, more organic and the song writing more finely chiseled. You can join in on his journey when he comes to the US for 12 live dates around the country this October (dates below).
