Cassettes Won’t Listen about my sonic adventure Into The Hillside on a Paper Float

♫ Cassettes Won’t Listen – Into The Hillside

“Into The Hillside” clocks in at under 3 minutes, which may seem strange for such an adventurous song that goes so many places as it churns along but I think there is something brilliant in the brevity, leaving me wanting more, another taste, another trip. I have had this one one repeat all week and I have big plans for it tonight. Talk about kicking a skateboard trip into overdrive! Cassettes Won’t Listen is the musical moniker of Jason Drake, formerly based out of Brooklyn but recently relocated to Los Angeles, the city that inspired the instrumental Into The Hillside LP. His previous work has played with trip-hop, hip-hop, indie electronic, and remixes for various other artists. 2008’s Small-Time Machine EP contains the more haunting and brooding Paper Float which I was digging about this time last year. The sound is a million miles away from “Into The Hillside” but it’s that kind of sonic evolution that I appreciate in an artist.

I haven’t had a chance to pick up the rest of Into The Hillside or Small-Time Machine, but now that I have two fantastic jams from Cassettes Won’t Listen I will definitely be investigating further. Any Cassettes fans want to chime in?
