Five Years Of Folklore Tapes

December 2016

To mark its fifth anniversary, Folklore Tapes has made a whopping 90 minute mix for its Library Catalogue Cassette Volume 1: 2011–2016 project. Listen to it here

Five years ago the British folklore research project Folklore Tapes released Two Witches by label heads David Chatton Barker and Ian Humberstone. A vinyl version was released soon after by Demdike Stare and Andy Votel's Pre-Cert imprint. To celebrate, Folklore Tapes has put together the mixtape and zine project: Library Catalogue Cassette Volume 1: 2011–2016, which includes an extensive history of the label written by Jez Winship. It went on sale on Bleep last week and sold out in a staggering two hours.

Here the label has offered us a stream of the mixtape. And you can read more about Folklore Tapes over at their website.
