Really don't get the bands that are putting stuff out on cassette recently.

Vinyl makes sense. Its beautiful. It arguably sounds better. Its cool to watch the needle bob up and down as the record spins around on your turntable. It is larger physical object. It works because its "more than just the music"

What do cassettes offer that is more than just the music? They don't sound better than MP3s. They are far less portable. There aren't pretty... I just don't get it. Seems like the only thing it has going for it is the "no one uses this anymore so its hip to use it" but that's a stupid reason for collecting vinyl so is also a stupid reason for collecting cassettes/cds,
It's a cheap, cool collectible and an easy, cheap way to buy an album in a physical format.
