Why tape

On Record Store Day 2015 the best-selling release was a cassette!!! Metallica’s “No Life Til Leather” is a replica of the demo tape that would eventually get them their first record contract.

Cassette tapes are here to stay. Great way for bands and labels to put out an analogue release that is way cheaper than a the vinyl production.

Probably we’ll see more cassette-only releases…
