Could the cassette tape be making a comeback? Zack Taylor and Seth Smoot have created CASSETTE: A Documentary about the topic. Check out the trailer, as well as some interesting facts pertaining to the cassette tape.
“A few months ago, the term cassette tape was taken out of the Oxford English Dictionary.
It may seem ironic, then, that the cassette has experienced a quiet comeback over the last few years, as independent labels issuing tape-only releases have begun popping up around the world.
What better excuse to take a look back at this beloved musical format?
As recorded sound continues its love affair with the downloadable, ethereal digital file, the tangible artefact is quickly becoming a thing of the past.
Help us celebrate the A Side, the B Side, the mixtape, and the whole of cassette culture by supporting Cassette: A Documentary. We’ll look at all parts of popular culture influenced by the cassette, including hip-hop and B-Boy culture, indie rock, home recording, and beyond.”
