International Cassette Store Day 2013

Well, it is now official…cassettes are back!  Just as vinyl has grown in popularity recently, as music fans are choosing the tangible product over the soulless “zeros and ones” and as 80’s and 90’s nostalgia has boomed, many indie labels are releasing their music onto cassette once again. 
Revivalists like San Fran’s Burger Records (King Tuff, Extra Classic, Burnt Ones) are leading the way and the very first International Cassette Store Day will take place this Saturday, September 7 in the US and UK.    
So bust out your Sony Walkman and rollerblade over to your closest participating indie record store to pickup some of these exclusive and limited cassette releases from Guided By Voices, Waxahatchee, At The Drive-In, Suicidal Tendencies, The Flaming Lips, Haim and more.
