101 cassette lables
"In the age of GarageBand, Myspace, and file sharing, it may come as a surprise to some that cassette labels are still very much in operation. Tapes now function as a basic form of patronage between musicians and their audience; since a physical format is no longer necessary to send or receive music, these objects become a gesture of support. Tapes act to make tangible the connection between a creator and their listeners, and the attentive and often handmade packaging speaks to this exchange."
this will take you hours to go through. there is more cool new music being done right now than a person can even keep up with. and it's not expensive to get. what else can a music lover do but simply dive in, find cool stuff, and inform their friends of the best stuff? music is badass.
