Black Tape For A Blue Girl

Black Tape for a Blue Girl's ethereal, mournful sound virtually defined the darkwave aesthetic of their label, Projekt Records, a company owned and operated by the group's founder, composer and keyboardist Sam Rosenthal. Formed in 1983, Projekt was originally envisioned as an outlet for Rosenthal's solo electronic music; upon relocating to California three years later, his music adopted a warmer, deeply personal sound heralded by the formation of Black Tape for a Blue Girl, which debuted in 1986 with The Rope. Where subsequent efforts including 1987's Mesmerized by the Sirens and its 1989 follow-up Ashes in the Brittle Air drew heavily on ambient soundscapes, the group -- a revolving ensemble of performers that in addition to Rosenthal also at times included vocalists Oscar Herrera and Lucian Casselman, violinst Vicki Richards, clarinetist Richard Watson, and cellist Mera Roberts -- expanded into increasingly dense electronic textures over the course of records like 1991's A Chaos of Desire and 1993's This Lush Garden Within. After a three-year hiatus, Black Tape for a Blue Girl resurfaced in 1996 with the EP The First Pain to Linger, a disc packaged with a novel authored by Rosenthal; the full-length epic Remnants of a Deeper Purity appeared that same year, followed in 1998 by As One Aflame Laid Bare by Desire. Before the Buildings Fell appeared in early 2000. Subsequent releases included Scavenger Bride (2002), Halo Star (2004), Fragments (2005), and 10 Neurotics (2009). ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

This Lush Garden Within is their darkest and most put together album...
One day soon I will hear Remnants of A Deeper Purity in its entirety. It deserves that.

Dafuq did I just get done listening to?!
Follow the breadth
Haunting, but oh so Angelic at the same time, Meditation at it's finest.
Blown away!

Been a fan of Black Tape since the early 90s. I wish Pandora would get more of their records though, especially Remnants. That album is a masterpiece.
I love their dark beautiful sound!

marvelously haunting....

This group is great They put in this mellow mode.
I would also recommend This Mortal Coil to anyone who likes this band, in particular the album Filigree and Shadow.
I'm new to this sound, but like what I'm hearing - true 'bout this pandora experience is addictive - and it intrigues me that this group put out an album called 'before the buildings fell' in early 2000. because, a year later, buildings fell, and for awhile , it felt like time was measured as, before, and after, the buildings fell. but you all know that..
