Obviously the cassette revolution is happening something fierce right now because its graininess perfectly suits the vibe of lo-fi. This minimal demo version of Twin Sister's "Lady Daydream" is the perfect evidence of that. Its languorous shuffle stuck to the acetate and got more lush, so listening to it is the equivalent of having to squint to look into the sun. Granted, we'll still stick to listening to Mariah's first album on .mp3 (besides someone stole that cassette from our locker), but this is pretty enough to invest in a Walkman.
