In the player: "Twilight Tonight", Track 2 out of 4 Tracks from the LP

The debut Cassettes single "Alright With The Days" came out around the end of 1999 and the follow-up, "Lights", early in 2000. They come from recording sessions we were doing in my parents basement on an ADAT machine. Listening back it sounds young and my voice sounds not quite as strong as I wasn't singing that much back then but mostly using my voice to scream in Frodus. These singles are explorations of the power-pop that The Cassettes were heading towards at that time. If I were to pick a favorite of these 4 early songs it would be "Twilight Tonight", the B-side of the "Lights" 7". I feel like it captured the atmosphere of those times and my parent's basement which faced a thickly wooded area.

Little known fact is that we had Jason Hutto (of The Aquarium) on second guitar with us for many months from 1999-2000.
