Coming March 26th!
Pre-Order here: ADVENTURES IN HOME TAPING: POST/POP X R/CASSETTECULTURE Ltd Edition Tape Album
PREORDER NOW - Released MARCH 26th 2014!
In January 2014, with the help of Neztok and Reddit’s R/CassetteCulture I asked for bands to email me their best songs for a unique compilation album. I picked the 26 best bands and their best tracks for this album, and I’m really excited about you hearing it.
The album is called ‘ADVENTURES IN HOME TAPING’ because there are so many different styles/genres at play here, you really do not know where you will end up listening to it! One moment you are listening to uplifting folk-pop and the next minute you are listening to freestyle jazz and then suddenly, you’ve got spoken word hip-hop in your ears!
As a bonus, you will also get a short story to read while you listen to the album. The album will soundtrack the imagery of the story, taking you to places you’ve only imagined. Think ‘Neverending Story’ and then you’ll be close to the vibe.
This tape - like all POST/POP tapes is extremely limited edition and there is a good chance that it will sell out on the day of release (MARCH 26th). There will be no redubs, so once they are gone, they are gone. The good news is, ‘ADVENTURES IN HOME TAPING: Vol 2’ will follow a few months later with another host of brand new bands and music to enjoy.
This really is a special collaboration, and Im very very lucky to have the high calibre of bands involved in this crazy adventure. We are trying something new, but I think it’s going to be something truly wonderful!
I am keeping the price of this low (£3 for 26 incredible songs and a story! but you are welcome to pay more if you want to support future releases!) and as with all POST/POP releases, you will also be able to see/hear the tape at The British Library where it will be held for all time! (You can actually book an appointment there to listen to this tape in a special room!)
putting up this pre-order relatively early to gauge numbers as it’s proving mighty popular! Again, please note that this will not start shipping until March 26th.
thanks everyone, and I’m very excited!
*PREVIOUSLY CALLED “CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE”
