Tape Exchange May 2021

Brave Readers we have done it again and in a somewhat timely manner this month to boot! Yes sir, the days of lollygagging are long gone and we have entered an era of straight shootin’ and fine tunin’! Oh, who are we kidding?! We’re not particularly proactive or efficient but that’s what makes us so relatable! Right…..? Right! Anyways, let’s show off some of the cool stuff that came in last month!


May’s raddest AND baddest tape had to go to this compilation sent in from music collective Sons of Old Town out of Memphis, TN. Now, don’t be fooled by it’s indie DIY charm! This thing is professionally potent! If you like indie rock, intimate acoustic tracks, eclectic electronic numbers, and soul restoring ambience – then look no further than this Quarantine Tape! Stuff like this reminds us, even in our overly produced and processed world, that honest and authentic music still holds a strong place and can connect us quicker and more securely than most forces of this earth.

CTEP’s Contribution:

Life sure threw us some great tunes in May! Seriously, this is a great mix of decades, genres, hidden gems, and classics! This turned out to be a super cool and listenable tape and we would recommend this mix to any music lover! It has a certain flow, a certain mood, as the kids say, “this shit slaps”.
