As a kid I remember sitting by the radio with my sister, finger on the record button of our cassette deck trying to snag our favorite songs from the radio. For us, the hunt was real... trying to time it just right, punching in between commercials and DJ banter. afterward i'd take paint markers and design my own art for them... those mixtapes went with me everywhere.
Today, everyone has a playlist right?... i mean, I'm not knocking it, even we have one. it's easy. you hear a song like, tap a few times on your phone and it's there to pull up anytime. They're great, but to me there's just something about it lacks substance.
So as a throwback those days with my sister, we've started the Ear Buds Mixtape, showcasing a few bands each month that are doing big things and we feel deserve a little more than just getting lost in the shuffle of a playlist. Each cassette will also feature artwork from a new artist to promote and encourage continuous creativity in all forms.
Our February Mixtape has already been curated so check out the artists that we have on the cassette below:
