“Audio blogging sites Gorilla vs. Bear and Weekly Tape Deck have launched a record label, Forest Family Records. The label will product limited runs of 7″, 10″ and 12″ vinyl as well as cassettes.”
CD’s are dead, long live digital! But there’s no doubt in my mind that physical formats will still play an important (but different) role in music. Especially when a whole generation of kids, who never really even knew what cassettes and vinyl were, decide to acquire some of that ‘post-digital’ cool factor.
For the record, I said it on the panel I was on at SXSW a few weeks ago, but I’m still waiting for the first cassette only exclusive by a major artist.
