So, word on the street is that the cassette is back. I know there’s lots of mixed feelings about this one.. It’s been taken so seriously that over the weekend was the first Cassette Store Day in a few select places. I don’t really know where to stand on this one. I like cassettes as a collector, they are fun, and small, and bring me back to being a kid and having tons of them. Slap a download code on it and as far as i’m concerned they are just as relevant as CD’s are these days. Kind of a fun, kitchy collector item (and an affordable way for small bands to put out a physical release, so i can’t complain about that). Besides, i don’t have a working CD player anymore anyways (what the hell am i supposed to do with 500+ CD’s in my basement?!). My first choice is still and will always be vinyl, but i find it interesting and refreshing that the market is getting back into tangible goods.
