Cassette EP by Baby Talk
I’m not sure why a band would label what is obviously an online product, “The Cassette EP.” Perhaps there was an unexpected accident resulting in a box of 500 cassettes on fire and a band struggling to map out their next move. For lack of a better title, they named their demo after their charred product.
The 500 cassettes could have easily ran the band around 250 dollars, plus printing costs for the sleeves. Already in the red, perhaps Baby Talk figured that releasing their EP online for free might attract the attention of some kind of altruistic artist-enabler/mogul, or perhaps find themselves on the cover of their favorite industry blog, MONEY TALK$.
Sadly, they will not be financially compensated for appearing on this blog or others because for the most part, blogs are not concerned with the financial outcome of the artists we cover. We are only here to rack up those hits. I’m averaging around 347,345 a day at the moment, so investors/advertisers take note.
It’s a really poppy record. The kind of record Grant Hart would have released had he not died in that van on the Husker’s final tour. It sounds dirty, tapping into a major lo-fi market right away. With proper promotion I’m projecting countless downloads of this product in the San Francisco area.
