AIHT2-B

ADVENTURES IN HOME TAPING 2 // ANOTHER REDDIT COLLAB TAPE!

 

 

Almost a year ago, POST/POP collaborated with Reddit’s R/Cassetteculture to release the extremely eclectic compilation ‘ADVENTURES IN HOME TAPING’ featuring the bands who frequent that specific subreddit. These bands encompass every genre you could possibly imagine. We even had a saxaphone solo recorded on a phone! We had hip-hop, we had poetry, we had garage rock, we had jazz! For the much anticipated sequel, some of those bands have come back, but they are joined by a whole host of new bands that have appeared on R/CC and all embrace the much maligned beauty of DIY tape culture. Some of these bands have their own tape labels, some of them have only recently got into tapes, but all jumped at the chance to be on AIHT2 as its like the Cassette Culture Rosetta Stone.

Listening to this album is akin to falling through a hole in this reality into a Yellow Submarine style journey down insanity road. The mix of genres and styles really push the aural escapism to its peak. Its a snapshot of the resurgence in cassette culture in one easy plastic rectangle and I’m sure its going to be adorning a plinth one day.

Hooray! It’s also run by the LEGEND which is NEZTOK. Everything is going to be tracked back to this guy. Be nice to him.
