[Listen & Watch] Cassettes Won't Listen - 'CASA' EP x "Ceilings and Floors" (Lyric Video)

Our good buddy, Jason Drake aka Cassettes Won't Listen is back with a brand new EP, Casa, which was recorded and mastered at the infamous Abbey Road Studios. Casa brings back that classic sound and melody that we love from CWL, especially with the standout cut "Ceilings and Floors", which takes me back to CWL's Small-Time Machine. Peep the full album stream below courtesy of Prefix as well as the lyric video for the track "Ceilings and Floors."

[Listen] Cassettes Won't Listen - "Hey" (Pixies Cover)

Brooklyn-based musician Jason Drake, aka Cassettes Won't Listen, is continuing his love of '80s alt-rock with yet a cover of one of the decade's most influential bands, Pixies. This time around, he has let loose his take on the Pixies' "Hey" from their 1989 album Doolittle. The end result is a fantastic display of Drake's instrumentation skills, and despite not sounding very much like the original the song is a great listen, so check it out below, courtesy of Slicing Up Eyeballs.

As well, Cassettes Won't Listen's third studio album, EVINSPACEY, is now available, so head here to purchase what is simply an excellent album.

Jason Drake never sleeps. Whether it's releasing music with his side project Dfalt or under the Cassettes Won't Listen moniker, the guy just keeps on dropping quality tunes. That's why we are so happy to have him playing our CMJ party on October 19th at The Delancey.
