Flatsound: Cassette Recordings

cassette recordings Cover Art

Cassette Recordings is the latest album from California artist Flatsound. Cassette Recordings is a lo-fi album that, rather than having that noisy lo-fi genre sound, is actually recorded as lo-fi as it gets. The nine tracks were recorded on a RadioShack VOX voice activated cassette recorder. This production aesthetic gives the tracks a legitimate feel that enhances the forlorn themes of the lyrics. The album ranges from haunting folk textures to dark garage ambience and serves as a tonal poem illustrating Flatsound's morose journey. Stream and buy Cassette Recordings at the link below.
