The Download

The MP3 player turns 10 this year, and what better way to celebrate than with a covers collection that reminds us of a time when the CD was the king of convenience? Jason Drake, aka Cassettes Won’t Listen, has posted One Alternative, a tribute to ’90s indie acts such as Sebadoh, Pavement and Liz Phair. The digital-only EP is available to download free at his site, along with a set of instrumentals and a capella tracks for you aspiring remix artists. In March, the Brooklyn producer will self-release his full-length Small-Time Machine; as with the rest of Drake’s material, you won’t be able to find it on one of those primitive, polycarbonate discs.
