25 Cassette Store Day Releases

The second annual Cassette Store Day is coming this Saturday Sept. 27! We’ll have just-released cassettes at the front sampler section at Amoeba Hollywood and in front at Berkeley and S.F. Plus, 15% off all used cassettes at Amoeba SF only. Here are some releases to look for …

1349 Massive Cauldron of Chaos

An early release by black metal greats 1349! Personally, I think the lo-fi aesthetic of Black Metal sounds amazing on cassette. The LP and CD come out Sept. 30 on Seasons of Mist.

John Flansburgh at AmoebaThe guitarist and co-founder of They Might Be Giants, John Flansburgh, gave us a really thoughtful, interesting "What's In My Bag?" video. His selections are mostly reissued Jazz, soul, and British Invasion rock LPs. The stories he tells about the artists, how educated he is in their history, and why he chose each record is very compelling. Not to mention he fondly refers to two of his Jazz picks - Anita O'Day and Blossom Dearie - as "nut"s.

On a heartbreaking note, last night on Twitter John mentioned that half of his picks from this Amoeba trip and other records he'd picked up while on tour, were burned in a trailer fire.
