Some Local Bands You Like Are on a New Cassette Tape

Posted By on Thu, Sep 25, 2014 at 4:00 PM


I've clearly reached that age where one finds young people and many of their interests confusing, so the idea that I would choose to listen to music on cassette is wildly befuddling to me (Hey, do you miss when you couldn't really skip songs without a significant hassle? Me neither!), but hey, if you enjoy antiquated methods of listening to music, you'll be psyched to hear about Cassette Store Day, happening this Saturday, Sept. 27.

Zia Records will have many, many cassettes available for purchase from people you've likely heard of, including They Might Be Giants, Karen O (from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Julian Casablancas (of the Strokes), the Circle Jerks, friend of Tucson Robyn Hitchcock, Testament and of course, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees PIZZA and their immediate classic "#funeral".

However, if you're trying to keep things a bit more local purchase-wise, Zia will have a compilation called You Heard Us on Cassette Vol. 2 for sale, featuring bands from their three markets - Tucson, Phoenix and Las Vegas, with tracks by Brian Lopez (“Modern Man”), Prom Body (“Money (I Hate You)”) and Chicha Dust (“Como Un Ave”).

If you'd like a preview, you can listen to the cassette comp on Soundcloud now:
