VARIOUS ARTISTS: Two Way Tie for Last: Cassette

This cassette compilation was released as part of Cassette Store Day, and contains thirty-eight (!) different tracks of punk, garage rock, indie rock, metal, hip-hop, and other genres. There is so much varying stuff here that it’s almost exhausting to make sense of it all, in turn making the release have the feel of a label sampler with a bunch of random, unconnected bands grouped together. The standout track for me is the catchy as fuck “woah-oh-ohs” of Basketball Shorts, but there is likely a little something here for everybody.
