cassette deck is a music blog by Rach. Rach is me. I co-host an indie rock radio show on KTCU, FM 88.7 in Fort Worth, Texas. Exposing myself to new music is both an obsessive hobby and a necessity. This blog is an outlet for me to share the music I discover with friends and passers-by. Enjoy!
The music found on this blog is intended for sampling purposes only. If you
dig what you hear, I encourage you to purchase the artist's music and generally support them in
a monetary way. If you own the copyright to an mp3 found on this blog and would like it
removed, please contact me and say "HEY! No
ma'am!" and I will remove it post-haste.

The Lord Henry
Clinton Piper's voice on The Lord Henry's first release, Voila, strikes me as a remarkably similar to that of Julian Casablancas of the Strokes. You know, the whole compressed singing-through-cupped hands effect. Not a bad thing, though. Plus, the band is presumably named after one of Oscar Wilde's colorful characters.
The Lord Henry's newer material prevents them from being completely lumped into the Strokes Clone category, thankfully. Nevertheless, it's all enjoyable. They performed at SXSW this spring and will play a couple shows in Texas and one in Oklahoma in July:
July 6: Gypsy Tea Room - Dallas, TX July 7: Rubber Gloves - Denton, TX July 8: The Conservatory - Oklahoma City, OK
