Suplex Cassettes(Fair Ohs, The Proper Ornaments)
Transgressive(At The Drive-In, Pulled Apart By Horses)
Bella Union(The Flaming Lips)
Wichita Recordings(Hard Skin)
Burger Records(Suicidal Tendencies, Twink)
Blood & Biscuits(Efterklang)
Kanine(Fear of Men, The Blow)
Night School(Molly Nilsson)
Plus loads more TBA…
Wow. Sounds cool, except that it sounds the exact opposite of cool. Every time someone mails us a cassette here, we dump it into a bin marked ‘Pretentious shitrock.’ Then once a week, we leave the bin on a shady corner and report it to the police. If you see something, say something. And we see a really lame music revival trend.
