Cassette Gods is One of My New Favorite Websites

I've made mention here on the blog how I've been fiddling with older/retro/vintage technology. I acquired a VCR player that has allowed me to enjoy random horror flicks from the 80s and 90s and I also have been doing a lot with my cassette player lately I acquired some years ago. I've been making mixtapes and listening to lots of cool older and newer works released on tape. Yes, lots of indie artists actually release music on cassette still and it is quite fun. I've made mention of how much I enjoy using Bandcamp, and it has some cassette releases, to give an example. However, another great resource I've used for finding awesome bands on tape is Cassette Gods.

Cassette Gods is a blog that has been around since 2007 (an impressive feat) and they review music releases on cassette that are submitted for their consideration. The artists might be with a larger label, an indie act found on Bandcamp, or any other variation, as long as they have a cassette they can be reviewed. Pretty much any genre you can think of has been reviewed and the writer at Cassette Gods do a fantastic job writing about the music they receive, whether they love it or hate it. Cassette Gods has helped me discover a lot more awesome music to enjoy on my tape deck and I can't thank them enough for that. The least I can do is give them a shout-out on this blog and tell everyone who reads my site to check them out--especially if you can play cassette tapes with one device or another!
