That’s right, they’re back. Deal with it!
About 6 or 7 years ago a local label called Moon Glyph started putting out releases exclusively on cassette. I always thought everything they did looked and felt amazing. Honestly, I had probably gotten so used to seeing music in square packaging (CDs and LPs), that something really struck me about the aspect ratio of the cassette medium. I’m assuming it did for Steve at Moon Glyph as well. He did all their packaging design (and possibly still does?), and its all awesome! They’re still around, but have since moved out west and branched into other formats. If you don’t already know the, you should give ’em a listen. They’ve put out some truly spectacular releases. Anyhow, being exposed to their releases was probably the first time I thought, hmmmm… maybe there is something to this format.
Then, back in 2013, we bought the first Sonny Knight And The Lakers tour bus, which had a cassette deck in it. A couple of the guys brought in their old collections and a few of us started making mix tapes. Before long, I was really digging the format. I acquired a couple different cassette decks and integrated them into my home and office stereos.
A lot of people look down on the format. Whatever, I get it. But I also think they’re visually interesting, nostalgic in a very fun way, have a unique sound, and can be easily made in small quantities, which means we can just make a small batch and not worry about how commercially successful it is… So, with that in mind, here is the brand new Sonny Knight And The Lakers album on cassette!
We only made up 100 copies and we’ve included a download card, so really…. why not give it a shot? Who knows, you might really like it!
Stay tuned for pricing and availability.
