September 2018 cassette round-up

Let’s take a gander at some of our favourite cassettes we listened to this past September. A very upbeat month before we get into the October gloom ‘n doom!

Lucid Sound Driver – “Night Light” c42

Instrumental dream-pop that’s sure to set the vibe right. Grab your Walkman and save this one for the last night bus home.

Coping Skills – “Worst New Music” c30

Not only is this possibly the best album title and cover art this year, the music also rips! Teenage Fanclub for the internet content mill age.

Shoshana Rosenberg – “A Gold Ring in a Pig’s Snout” c30

Beautiful cassette consisting of revolving bass clarinet tones. The room sound is audible, giving an impression of claustrophobia relating to its thesis of female oppression.

Velveteen Echo – “Submarine” c15

Dream-like and hazy indie pop from Miss Champagne Records. A little Galaxie 500, a little Grouper. Love their pad print design too!

Heathers – “Midnight is a Place” c30

Montreal 90s rock revivalists return with their second cassette release. At the right time and in the right place, this would be classic Sub Pop canon.

August 2018 cassette round-up

Hello all tapeheads! Here’s a look at some of our favourite cassettes fell into our production line this month. Some are funky, some survived the pit, and one in particular is very kvlt.

Mortiis – “The Song of a Long Forgotten Ghost” c58

This is a reissue of Mortiis’ debut demo, a big departure from his black metal work in Emperor, instead opting to explore funeral dirge synthesis. Dig the dark forest etching on the matte black cassettes.

Wasterr – “Tape A” c9

It may be on the short side, but this cassette packs a hell of a punch. Melbourne garage rockers singing about fighting dads and smooching boys.

Moon Rise – S/T c40

You’ll have some trouble describing Moon Rise’s sound. Yes, it’s aesthetic, but it has the daring approach of PC Music, and the retro party vibes of The Avalanches. If that isn’t cool enough, check out their shimmering gold cassette.

Firearm – Dravecky c12

Bay Area hardcore as loud and tough as Dave Dravecky himself (SF Giants legend who broke his arm during a wild pitch!)

Satanic Panic ’81 – “The Sacrifice Hunter” c32

Synthwave maestros Satanic Panic emulate 80s horror VHS vibes in their soundtrack to The Sacrifice Hunter, a horror film so rare that… it may not even exist. Awesome use of our clear vinyl cassette boxes!
