Just raising a thread from the dead, I would like to contradict myself on an earlier post here when I said cassette tapes are shit. In the last year, I have decided to give up trying to reach out with digital media and formats, as I find the messages and the music gets lost in a sea of digital competitive noise.
I have decided that it will be an all analogue label from 2014 (at some point). So no digital recording equipment will be used and no digital formats will be available. Only analog. I will release on vinyl, cassette and a super small run of maybe 5 copies on 7" reel tape. I might even fuck facebook and twitter off.
I now have an old desk, a Tascam 8 track reel to reel and a BBC 2 track reel to reel for the masters. And i have a new way of working, along with some new songs here - what do you think?

This reduces the chance of the label acts being heard, so cassettes need to come back into the fold in the same way there did when they were huge - a cheap and convenient way to get the music to more people than if it was vinyl only.
