Thanks for the post! The gold tapes are nearly sold out, so those hoping to secure both colors should consider ordering sooner than later. We also have a preorder bundle option that comes with any other Antique release (your choice).

Tapes are awesome. Not too hip to this band, but, yeah, tapes are awesome.

Glad you enjoy! This release is about as long as you can press to tape, and it's chock full of awesome. You can preview the album, as well as our other bands, on the store: http://antiquerecords.storenvy.com/

I hope this is sarcasm. If not, you are a supreme moron.

We had this debate the other day, but "Conversation Piece" is considered the debut full length.

What makes cassette tapes hipster? It's a format that has seen better days, sure, but I can tell you now that people all over the world in all shapes and sizes still embrace it as part of their daily lives.

Look at the post ALLB made on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/ALotLikeBird...69597273062352

People still love and accept this format. Even if most household stereos have done away with tape decks, there will be automobiles with tape decks on the road for years to come. Carry tapes ensures your cds won't be ruined and saves you from having to purchase a tape-converter for your ipod.

And it's very cost efficient. My favorite (mostly) tape label:

How's so? Plan B is a full length album, not a demo or an EP. It was self-released, so Conversation Piece is their label debut, but not their debut album. If that's your Storenvy, it even says sophomore there.

Gonna have to agree with you. This could be a cool collector's item for some people but I don't think I've seen a tape player since the early 2000s.
