HARMLESS & CLEVER AUSTIN (HIATUS KAIYOTE – SINGLE ‘WORK WITH’
The genesis of Blank Tape Music as a label was a recording by Harmless that never saw the light of day. One of the outcomes of this session was a collaboration w/ Clever Austin of world dominating and old Blank Tape comrade Hiatus Kaiyote. Conceived in Blank Tape’s original studio in Northcote, Melbourne (where Hiatus Kaiyote tracked their debut EP ‘Tawk Tomahawk’), ‘Work With’ was executed between bedroom production spaces and the studio.
