When’s the last time you bought a cassette with the intent to listen to it? Maybe it’s been 10 years, maybe you don’t even have a contraption to play a cassette in - but get this - you’re going to want to buy a tape player and get this cassette. And then see the show at Vera featuring all the great songs on the cassette!
The Believer Magazine June/July music issue is featuring Calvin Johnson and a cassette he put out called “Love Songs for Lamps”. Some of the artists included are Hysterics, The Memories, Shana Cleveland and the Sandcastles, Soviet, Tomorrow’s Tulips, Laura Leif and Amber Phelps Bondaroff, Skrill Meadow, Mom, KMVP, White Rainbow, The Great White Jenkins, Broken Water, Briana Mariela, The Shivas, Ruby Fray, Baby Island, Erin Earthling, Old Night, Margy Pepper, Happy Noose, Lovers Without Borders, Mansion Music, Sewn Leather, & Priests.
So much great music, in an unappreciated, vintage format—what more could you want?
