Cassettes Debut EP Small-Time Machine Out March 08

“Ah! the sound of the 90’s…

…being dragged kicking and screaming into modern day. That’s what we like. Y’all remember Robot pal and production whizzkid Jason Drake? The one man act behind Cassettes Won’t Listen and many , many excellent remixes (original work featured on MFR here ) has turned his attention to one of my most consistent sources of baseless guilt as a 90’s teen.

Remember this joint? The one with nearly every artist I was waaaaay to into and constantly listening to on WHFS ? Yeah, also the one I never got around to buying. Ever. Despite being a patsy for the industry man and a CD buying whore (I’m still selling off bulk from those days). Well, Jason did us all a solid – he took the spirit of the comp and just wrapped on an EP of covers from the same era (more choice track selections than were on the benefit comp too), called One Alternative, available for download now.

I recall this song as one of my more fond Blind Melon memories from when I was content the radio and underage beers during Ocean City beach week. Before Shannon Hoon got into all of that R-Kelly-style crowd pissing and whathaveyou, before his eventual death. At any rate, I like it with fresh zeal now. People need to refresh old designs like this more often.

So check back here and at CWL’s website now to grab the rest. Also, make a note on your calendars, CWL’s original full-length Small-Time Machine EP coming out March 11th. “
