    Following mixed reactions from their 2008 sophomore release, Walk it Off, Tapes 'n Tapes returned to their own self-run label, Ibid Records, for the 1/11/11 release of their 3rd album: Outside. Trying to resurface the band's off-the-cuff approach to their 2005 debut, Loon, Outside tip toes into elements of their early days of reckless abandon.
