Dig Up Your Mom's Walkman: Tapes Are Back In A Big WayBy Vincent Brunetto
Remember cassettes? Those little plastic things you pulled the guts out of? Well, they're suddenly cool again. So cool that the fine people at Get On Down reissued Raekwon’s 1995 classic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx on a limited edition purple tape replicating the original. The insanely elegant package sold out in just two days, but Raekwon isn’t the only one with an awesome cassette release. Here are a few others!
The Cyclist - Rending Brass
Slow Magic - ▲
Ariel Pink & R. Stevie Moore - Klu Klux Glam
Black Marble - Weight Against The Door
Brought to you by the brilliantly strange AMDISCS.
Young Pharos - White Shados
Comes with some free swag.
Ken Seeno - Invisible Surfer On An invisible Wave
Synth-heavy vibes with Vermont's NNA Tapes.
Punks On Mars - Ryan Howe Presents: Pimples in 3D
Been in the deck for a while.
Now, I’m sure you're asking yourself, "What the hell am I going to listen to these tapes on?" Not to fear; the the evil geniuses at Hammacher Schlemmer have got you covered with this monstrosity...
