With vinyl sales on the rise, it looks like cassettes are the new “difficult/retro/obscure format” of choice for music. Cassettes have a much short lifespan (10-30 years, compared to compact discs which are estimated to last up to 200 years. Vinyl can last for decades if you clean it properly). In the case of Burn Books’ New York Rules mixtape, audio degradation might be a strength, as the compilation showcases eight skuzzy, fuzzy proto-punk acts. More tape hiss means more noise to dive in.
