In a move that makes perfect sense considering they’re already the format’s biggest supporters, Burger Records have been named the U.S. ambassadors for the second annual Cassette Store Day. (Kissability and Suplex Cassettes will handle UK/EU releases.) Anyone looking to dub a limited tape for the September 27 event will be able to register their record for a $10/£10 fee between June 30 and August 15.
“Burger Records loves tapes!” the label said in a press release, stating the obvious. “We’ve built our foundation on the forgotten format and have been preaching the merits of warm analog cassette culture for years. We’re honored to be ambassadors of Cassette Store Day 2014 in the good ol USA! We plan to bring some of our favorite labels to the table and invite everyone to the party and partake in the fun phenomena of releasing top shelf music on cassette tapes in pop culture today!”
Or as Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie once put it, “Cassette is a cool medium to listen to music on. Warm and fat. Good bottom end. Yeah!”
