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!

E-mail me if you heard something nifty and want to share, or if you're an artist looking for love (in all the right places.) I eat new music daily.

Morning Mix

Good morning all...sorry about the slacking in posts lately. My grandpa passed away on Saturday, so I'll be in Chicago Wednesday through Sunday with family. Won't be posting until I get back, so hang tight.

Stella Rose has their new full-length out. It sounds great. They're a highly talented local flavor, not to mention really nice folks, and if you like Bush and Stone Temple Pilots, you will take a liking to Stella Rose. Also pretty brilliant musicians live. http://myspace.com/stellarosemusic

We were going to see a free Calhoun show last night, but they gave me the boot for being underage. Harrumph.

A morning trio of songs that may or may not wake you up this morning. It's actually pretty subdued, increasing my desire to crawl back under my covers. Sorry. Hopefully soon I can give each of these bands a proper write-up, because I really enjoy them all. Especially that Doug Burr.
