I think all of POST/POP‘s releases are important. I only release the bands I truly love. Bands I’ve either just discovered and its love at first sight, or bands I’ve loved for ages, but only worked up the courage to ask them the big question. Yes, it’s got easier over these last two years. Bands rarely say “No” anymore, in fact they seek me out, but it was very daunting at the start. One of the first things I did was document where cassette culture was in 2014. That my friends was the very first “Adventures in Home Taping” and its as eclectic as it is long. I followed that up on 2015 with “Adventures in Home Taping 2” which was a snapshot of cassette culture as it started to show green shoots into the mainstream. It had a lot more chorus and a little less noise.
THIS is the third Cassette in the POST/POP X r/cassetteculture compilation “Adventures in Home Taping” and its the best yet. I’ve found 22 new bands who all frequent r/cassetteculture and who all have a die-hard passion for all things cassette. This is currently the only true snapshop of the real cassette culture that has emerged from garages and underground gigs across the world. This represents a broad cross-section of bands/genres/styles from as far afield as Phillipines all the way to the sunny
closed down mines shores of Sheffield.
Have a listen below. Some of it is genius, some of it is incredible and some of it, in a certain light, is pure insanity.

Thanks to all the bands who are on this tape. Without you POST/POP is just another tape label. With you, it’s the best. I know I’m biased but I’m also right.
p.s. some big bands coming up and very limited edition so keep your eyes peeled on the newsletter!
