Thanks to Constellation Tatsu I have discovered a number of experimental electronic artists that I would've totally missed if I had given to what people around me saying the audio cassette is a dead format. I'm find it a much affordable way for both the consumer and bands to put their music out and for fans to take a chance on purchasing. There's a big difference of slapping down $16.00 and up for a brad new CD of an artist you've never heard before or slapping down $4-8 for an artists that you've never heard before. I'm finding once I pick up a few tapes from certain labels like Constellation Tatsu, Living Tapes, Swedish Columbia, Spring Break Tapes, Further Records (just to name a few) I know what kind of music I will be getting just by the reputation of the mentioned labels.

Fall of 2016 sees another beautiful ambient piece released by Hakobune. I own 3 of his tapes now and I'm impressed with each one of them. They make great listening experiences for getting ready to go to sleep, meditation, and just relaxing too.. "Airworthy" is a 12 minute epic piece that takes a while to build up. Once it does I'm along for the ride. "Instransigence" and the title track on the flip side fit in right in with the mood that "Airworthy" sets up. Search out samples of Hokabune's sound on sites like youtube to hear what I'm talking about. Recommended.
