The second annual international Cassette Store Day has revealed its list of U.S. and U.K./E.U. releases, a crowded haul that includes key releases from J Dilla (Donuts), White Lung (Deep Fantasy), Cloud Nothings (Here and Nowhere Else), and Karen O (her long-awaited solo debut Crush Songs). As reported a few months back, Burger Records are the stateside ambassadors for event, which takes place on Saturday, September 27. Also of note in the tape-related arena recently: The rising eBay costs of vintage Sony players, which are going for as much as $900.

What recession? Here’s a complete rundown of the releases we can expect on these shores next month…
