Cassette is an upcoming documentary about the cultural significance and history of the tape cassette (trailer). The film is by Zack Taylor and Seth Smoot—they’re raising funds for the project on Kickstarter.
A few months ago, the term cassette tape was taken out of the Oxford English Dictionary.
It may seem ironic, then, that the cassette has experienced a quiet comeback over the last few years, as independent labels issuing tape-only releases have begun popping up around the world.
What better excuse to take a look back at this beloved musical format?
