On their 30th anniversary, Black Tape For A Blue Girl returns to their evocative ethereal, neoclassical, gothic roots with an album exploring the existential predicaments of time's passage, choices questioned, and loves lost. Original vocalist Oscar Herrera rejoins the band after a 17-year absence. His darkly dramatic vocals soar on These Fleeting Moments, their 11th studio release. Oscar's involvement is more than a nostalgic appearance – he sings seven songs. Accompanying Oscar is his daughter Dani, who was not even a year old when the band recorded their 1986 debut, The Rope. The new album's lyrics range from emotionally wrought to delicately sensitive, detailing fears of revealing the true self, betrayal of one's body in the hands of a lover's promises, asking if we have the courage to live in service to our ideals, or poking fun at mankind's belief that we are more important than other animals. This is 70 minutes of powerful, gorgeously yearning tracks born from the same place as their 90s classics Remnants of a Deeper Purity and A Chaos of Desire.
