Orange Cake Mix

Red Rose Speedway

Red Rose Speedway cover


Orange Cake Mix is Jim Rao, a hometaper who's been making lots of waves in the hometaping underground for several years, and, judging from this collection from Italian label Best Kept Secret, it's quite easy to understand why. OCM's music is decidedly melodic poprock and Rao's gift for harmony vocal interplay really shines throughout. The music is full of beautifully constructed tunes with plenty of exploration that challenges the form to accept new directions that hold up to repeated plays; which is good, because this tape is also the kind of tape you'll want to play again and again. -- Bryan Baker
