Cassette Tape Magazine

cassette tape magazine

As Team Evil’s Mikolai Napieralski points out in his editorial for the newly-launched Cassette Tape Magazine, the mixtape has been used to communicate a spectrum of emotions, but usually those relating to the heart. Nothing says “I like you” better than a a handmade mix, but most people have moved on from using cassettes to express this sentiment. For all intents and purposes the cassette mixtape has become an obsolete format; however, Cassette Tape Magazine is giving it a new life.

Except when you open the clear plastic case, there is not an actual tape but a small zine that folds out like an accordion. Like any good mix, each “track” adds up to a perfectly eccentric album. Covering alpacas, robot sex, John Woo films, Japanese posters aimed to curb anti-social behaviour and other miscellany, Cassette Tape Magazine is a delicious combination of esoteric wit (Side A) and graphic design (Side B).

    Ugh for the love of god can we get our collective douche hipster heads out of our asses? Enough with this reviving the cassette idea. I went to a show and the two damn bands had no cd’s but plenty of gd tapes. What the hell?!? I get it. You’re cool and hipster but this shit is getting ridiculous. It’s not more personal or cool, it’s limiting, annoying and completely unnecessary. Enough please.

    HA! I’m an idiot. Sorry I guess I’m still sore from the show on Saturday.
