About this item

Anthony Naples returns with his second full length album, "Take Me With You", arriving first as a ‘Mixed Version’ cassette inspired and commissioned by the Good Morning Tapes series, followed by this vinyl edition that's just arrived here in the shop.

Originally conceived as a mixtape dedicated to friends and the time spent with them in the morning hours, after the party is over (or beginning) - it quickly morphed into a soft focused meditation on all things warm and intangible.

"Take Me With You" fires off in all styles - the opening triptych of the extra-cosmic “Alto”, post-rave pianos of “Goodness” and slow-dance-inducing “Drifter” bring the attention inward - taking cues from a host of personal favorites including: “Space” LP by Space, The Theater Of Eternal Music, Panda Bear’s “Person Pitch” , Atlas Sound’s “Let The Blind Lead…”, Arthur Russell’s “World Of Echo”, Suzanne Ciani’s “Buchla Concerts: 1975”, The Microphones “The Glow Pt. II” & “Mount Eerie”, A mixtape of Krautrock from DJ Ivan Berko and most definitely Holger Czukay, “Take Me With You” is a fresh turn for Naples as he ascends into a blend of his most personal work to date - touching on trip-hop, psychedelic pop, ambient house, and much more along the way.

Make no mistake - “Take Me With You”’s message is undoubtedly about escapism, given away by its happy-abductee cover art done by the legend Biscuit - but first and foremost it reflects on that lingering feeling one gets when walking away from the ones they love.

STAFF COMMENTS
