Make me a story about a mixtape

Cassette From My Ex is a relatively new website about mixtapes. But a specific type of mixtape—the one made by a former flame. The site's contributors give a little backstory on the tape in question and provide images. Even better, you can stream each tape (one side at a time, natch) to get a real feel for what the maker of the tape was trying to say. One semi-famous contributor so far is Claudia Gonson of the Magnetic Fields, and Damon Locks of The Eternals and Trenchmouth is due to post soon. Maybe they'll get Nick Hornby in on the action one day.


  1. I find it particularly interesting how girl heavy this site is so far, unusual for a music site but perhaps significant because the girl is on the receiving end of the tape rather than the giver. I know, I am totally over thinking this.

  2. Hmmm, I don't think I ever made a mixtape for a Significant Other.

    But Michael Hearst has a Richmond VA post. Kinda nice to hear The Village mentioned in a post.
