We stumbled upon a few Facebook links to a new blog, the Yeti Records Mix Tape Exchange. Despite the social media connection, the blog from the owners of Yeti Records (Jake and Lisa Luck) is an effort to recreate a lo-fi, technologically retro movement - the mix tape. According to the blog, "To participate, you merely need to bring some kind of mix-tape to the shop (3506 Nicollet Ave South, Mpls.). It can be only be on cassette (Sorry to those who don't own a tape player.. perhaps you could buy or borrow one from a friend. ). It should have a cover. Though it is not required, it is encouraged. It should include a track listing. This will be an ongoing event!"
So far, two mix tapes have hit the store and the blog: "Shit Came Running" and "Time Spy." One even has hand sewn packaging. These shouldn't last long. Make your own mix tape, head to the store and exchange away.
