5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional neo-swing May 11, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
After the swing revival of the 1990s, I thought - aside from Ray Gelato - swing was pretty well dead. Not so!

Tape Five, part of the "electro-swing" movement, certainly borrows more from "swing" than "electro." Ice from Russia highlights crooner vocalization, Bunga Book could have been straight out of Louis Prima's songbook. Three Butterflies hints back to The Andrews Sisters. Yet all of the music has a fresh, modern feel as well.

Simply put, Tape Five has quickly become one of my favorite "go-to" bands when I want to kick back and go to my happy place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tape Five Takes Off Where Goodman/Miller Left Off April 21, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I love this group, the swinging beats, and fun songs. I love Geraldine's Routine. I always want to dance to it, which looks kinda silly if I am driving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Listening April 6, 2014
Format:Audio CD
There are maybe 4-5 albums which I would call "Perfect" and of those, this album may top the list. It's a perfect album because every track is flawless. You will not want to skip any. Not all are as infectious as "Geraldines Routine" but all are a delicious mix of oldschool swing and new school electro. It's also a flawless album because of the flow of music. You put in the disc, press play, and suddenly your apartment is transformed into a big band party that would make the Great Gatsby jealous.

I feel bad mentioning standout tracks, because it makes more sense to consider this album as a single performance, but for those who want to sample a few mp3s, here are the ones to get:

- Geraldines Routine - this is the track that probably brought you here. It's one of my favorite songs from the last 20 years.
- Tequila (Swing Patrol Mix) - a great revamp of an old classic
- Fabulous Swing Kid - instrumental, but so great at setting the mood
- Three Butterflies - dripping with Andrews Sisters charm, with the perfect touch of modern, it's a gem
- Peace Patrol - epic instruments, catchy beat, I dare you to not tap your toes

Seriously all the others are fantastic as well, but some are more atmospheric transitions between the bigger numbers. You really need the whole album for the ultimate experience. Get it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Modernization of Swank Tunes February 14, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard this was big in Europe and wanted to try a sample. The swing tunes are brought into vibrant forms with excellent voices and instrumentation. This was a fine diversion from the usual stuff one finds, and the next one I got as a follow-up made me happy too. There is lots of energy in this, but it is presented with smooth artistry.
