Is there a cassette tape resurgence?

Recommended Posts

Noticed portable and cassette tape players appearing in a few current pop videos; Replay - Zendaya, rather be - clean bandit.

 

Is Cassette tape making a resurgence as the cool "new" old format for audio playback?

It is a retro, kitschy thing now with the cool kids, like using old timey cameras. Occasionally you see bands selling tapes at gigs as well.

Some "underground" artists publish their music exclusvely on limited cassette runs. Mostly experimental electronic types. You know, the too cool for school crew.

I'm gonna put a melted one on the dashboard of my car...

 

:cool:

 

Those were the days, the stretched tape playing wobbly and dull in the car.

Watching RAGE a while back and 5 videos in a row had old TV sets and VHS players in them.

Just a retro thing trying to be different but everyone's doing the same thing.

They probably don't know how to put the tape in properly. What is this ancient thing?

Played one of my own 'mix tapes' the other day and was struck by how easily I had been able to edit the input tunes by just 'Pause' 'Stop' or fading volume.  So much easier than having to screw about on the PC trying to digital edit.
