    Default Electronic Cassette Tape Albums

    So i just got a car that only has a cassette player and i dont really have the cash for a new stereo right now. So instead of listening to the pathetic excuse for what my town calls radio stations i thought id take on a little experiment and jam out to some old school cassette tapes for awhile. So what are some sick old skool electronic albums on tape? Or any other must have albums of that era? Cmon geezers let me here how it was in the good ol days

    Idk about any good electronic tapes, but if you did want to listen to your iPod or something, you could always get one of the cassette audio adapters instead of buying a new stereo. This is what I'm talking about:

    For the most part if it came out on cassette it would have to have been fairly commercial. Think 808 State or cassette singles of pop or 80's new wave that had remixes on them. The hard part is finding them which is an art in itself. I'm in a couple of local Goodwill's and thrift store's a week and almost never see good cassettes so good luck.

    Oneohtrix Point Never's new album will be released on cassette. Ryan Elliott released a mixtape on cassette last year on Ostgut Ton.

    Cassette is kinda hip right now and is enjoying a bit of a renaissance. If you look around, you should be able to find some stuff. I'm not into the format myself, so i can't really tell you what rocks and what doesn't...

    dude there are a lot of people doing cassette releases now a days. theyre cheap and easy to produce, and as my friend put it when i was ribbing him for doing a cassette only release - plenty of people have cars with only tape decks.
    best place to find them - look around bandcamp.
