cassette store day 2016

Posted September 30 2016

 

Cassette store day is back for its 4th year and Tapehead city is very excited to be part of it! If you're not yet familiar with CSD, its a once a year celebration of well.. the cassette tape!  It was created by a group of record labels in the UK in 2013 and unlike record store day, cassette store day is more focused on celebrating tapes instead of shops. Bands & labels make primarily short run exclusive/special releases. Theres always some very cool reissues as well. This year might be the best yet!  Below is a complete list of CSD 2016 releases, but check our CSD section  to see which ones we will have in stock. They go on sale at midnight OCT 8 2016. We have a big selection this year, but very limited quantities so dont sleep on it! We have a streaming player on most listings so you can start previewing the albums. I highly recommend checking out some artists you never heard of. Theres some really great music with awesome artwork to go with it. Its a great day to get into some new bands and build that tape collection! 

The official website of cassette store day is www.cassettestoreday.com

Co-founder Jen Long of Kissability said, “Cassette tapes aren’t just a format, they’re a culture, and cassette culture is as much about collaboration as doing it yourself. This year we’ve gone even further to try and include as many tape fans around the world. We want as many people as possible to be able to get involved and put out a tape, put on a gig or event, or get hold of that release they really want.”
