Rough Trade C09 cassette

Rough Trade just put out a new limited edition cassette in the vein of other NME cassettes such as C86 from back in the day. So even though almost all the tracks have been widely blogged (check hypem.com) I simply had to cover it (considering all the similar cassettes that I've put up here) and Rough Trade had sent me a copy, and I like them :). The only track that appears to fairly exclusive is the Clark Kunt's remix of Micachu. In the end I couldn't extract a recording of the cassette that was quality enough (even though sometimes, such a with the african cassettes, the tapes sound fantastic) so I compiled the mp3s from other blogs.

All in all, the music on here is really good. My favorite track has to be (hands down) the Cure cover by the Mystery Jets. Such a good track. I dj'd with Will and Kai from the Mystery Jets in Ghent last weekend and they played a fantastic banging set (with excellent mixing skills). Will is going to come down and dj with me downstairs at Catch this Thursday at 22 Kingsland Road in Shoreditch. It's free if you want to come along.

[edit: I've put the Micachu track up now cause it's exclusive to this blog and this cassette]
