COLLECTED RECORDINGS ON CASSETTE STORE DAY 2014
Mattress Blowout Sale by Cassette Fighter
GTB054 / CR10
(C?? [see contest below], experimental pop)
Cassette Fighter’s newest extended play, Mattress Blowout Sale, found the band slowly wandering along a winding road, away from their usual sound. The EP, which will be Cassette Fighter’s last before the release of their first full-length album, explores the sounds of acoustic ambience, surf rock, chill-out, and synthpop. Along the way, Cassette Fighter’s dual queer frontwomen offer an insidious hand to guide you through the Mattress Blowout Sale with instrumental interludes and spoken-word tracks.
Pre-order the digital EP on Cassette Fighter’s Bandcamp, and you’ll be eligible to enter a cassette giveaway! Just send the band an email at cassettefighter[at]gmail.com guessing how long the EP is in minutes and seconds. The closest guess wins a limited-edition cassette of the EP, with free shipping to the US and discounted shipping elsewhere.
The exclusive cassette release in celebration of Cassette Store Day this year comes on a transparent smoky cassette, labeled on both sides, with a full-color J-card cover featuring photography by ant.
Collected Recordings and GTB are participating in Cassette Store Day 2014 in the U.S., alongside releases from artists like J Dilla, Madvillain, Vivian Girls, Best Coast, They Might Be Giants, Cloud Nothings, Dntel, and Radiator Hospital. We’re releasing four different tapes—two new releases and two reissues from GTB’s catalog—and we’ll be announcing them each day this week.
Listen to the first two tracks released, “Welcome Home” and “Arson”, and let your local participating store know that you’d like to get a copy on cassette!
