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 Millennium

The Millennium explored the charted waters of 60's psychadelic pop, treading where The Beach Boys, The Mamas & The Papas, and The Association have tread before.

And you know? The Association reference is quite merited--The Association's producer, Curt Boettcher, is the motivating force behind creating The Millennium. Who'da thunk.

Their own description fits well:
"Boettcher and his friends came up with a hybrid that was at once too unabashedly commercial for underground FM radio and too weird for the AM dial." "To Claudia on Thursday" combines jangling guitar and grooving bassline and happy-go-lucky lyrics. Come on, it's supposed to be the 60's. They purport to transport us. What kind of write-up can I give it?

It's just groovy music.

Rach-tested, oldies-radio-loving mother approved. (Really, my mom would love this stuff.) Just go ahead and have a listen, see what you think.
