Tape Exchange June 2021

Brave Readers/Listeners/Exchangers!

Hot damn! Summer is now in full effect! The CTEP is growing in terms of reach and impact. Sure, it’s taken a few years, but it’s no secret that the who’s who of tape trading know about the good work we do! We’re buzzing from the tunes we’ve shared and we are excited to share this months haul with y’all…. see what we did there? Anyways, let’s do our monthly dance, shall we?


June’s raddest and baddest tape happened sneak in right before our deadline of the 20th! (Remember, anything received after that is featured the following month) Here in Vermont (or in the Northeast you could say) we tend to think of New Mexico as a hot place, but man, this tape is cold! It’s trendy, it’s flashy, it’s authentic, it’s unapologetic, it’s cool as hell! This contribution is the exact reason we started this exchange. There is cool music out there that you don’t know about! If you give someone the chance to show you, you can seriously expand your musical universe, and even make a new friend!
