Cassette Store Day Announces Releases from Vivian Girls, They Might Be Giants, Rural Alberta Advantage
Though grumpy curmudgeons decry them as gimmicks, relative cheapness and easy access has meant that the cassette tape revival isn't going anywhere. As previously reported, the international Cassette Store Day is set to return for its second annual edition. Today, we get a taste of what's to come with the first batch of planned releases.

The enormous list is remarkably diverse, with releases planned from Kevin Morby, Vivian Girls, Mutual Benefit, Foxygen, They Might Be Giants, Weedeater, Zero Boys, Enslaved, Suffocation, Testament, the Rural Alberta Advangate, Chuck Ragan, the Gaslight Anthem, R. Stevie Moore and Wooden Wand.

There are also a handful of compilations and a pressing of comedian Kurt Braunohler's How Do I Land? LP.

Though it's already an impressive list, the day's official site excitedly promises "MORE RELEASES BEING ADDED ALL THE TIME!!!"

Cassette Store Day will take place on September 27 throughout the world. It'll be handled by Burger Records in North America, with Kissability and Suplex Cassettes running the show in the UK and Europe.

Check out the full list of planned releases on the next page.
