      Remember how you switched from vinyl albums to cassette tapes, then from cassette to CD, then from CD back to vinyl?

      Well, get ready to switch from vinyl to cassette again.

      RecordingTheMasters announced today that, in conjunction with ThinkIndie Distribution, it's reissuing a series of seven albums on cassette for the first time ever. 

      The albums, to be released on April 30, include Major Lazer’s Peace Is The Mission, Maren Morris’ Girl, Lupe Fiasco & Kaelin Ellis’ House EP, The Mavericks’ En Español, The Story So Far’s Proper Dose, Killswitch Engage’s Atonement, and Sturgill Simpson’s Cuttin’ Grass, Vol. 1: The Butcher Shoppe Sessions.

      "In addition to the album releases," reads a press release, "RecordingTheMasters will also make their B-1000 Portable Cassette Player available in the U.S. for the first time. With electronics by RecordingTheMasters’ parent company Mulann, the cassette player features a built-in speaker, built-in microphone and direct line-in recording."

      On a personal note: screw cassettes, I'm sticking with vinyl this time.
