Just as I’m bringing Cakes and Tapes back from the dead (more news soon!) I realized there’s a new tape label in town (and by town I mean The Internet) and it’s half-run by the same fine lad who brought us Beat the Indie Drum and the awesome record label Big School Records (Point Reyes, Shy Mirrors, The Appleseed Cast, Graham Repulski… all great stuff, go grab some vinyl). Good to know you crossed over to the tape side of the industry. You can already stream the eight (!) first releases on Hope for the Tape Deck’s bandcamp, but you prefer to check out these eight bands you’ve probably never heard of before, this Soundcloud player will save your day. Really, that Missionaires track is 24k gold, so make sure you listen to the whole thing.
