about

"Ever Since Ever Since, the trio’s second LP, swims confidently in the 70s end of the power pop pool, happily indulging in the sweet melodies/tough attack modus operandi of the Raspberries, Shoes, Dwight Twilley, Cheap Trick, the Plimsouls, etc." - Big Takeover Magazine

"Ever Since Ever Since is one of the finest examples I've heard of what "mature" power pop ought to be. Hooky choruses and memorable melodies abound, but there's a soulfulness and emotional depth to these songs that is quite rare for this genre of music." - Faster And Louder

"Based in Seattle, the Cheap Cassettes have been producing their own brand of power-pop for quite some time, establishing themselves as a reliable source for hi-energy musical excellence. The immediate references (for me, at least) are probably Cheap Trick and The Replacements, but there are plenty of other influences that you’ll be picking-up as you listen further. The Flamin’ Groovies at their best, maybe a bit of Alex Chilton and, on occasion, there’s even some great keyboard-sounds that will recall Jimmy Destri’s work on the early Blondie albums. There’s a lot to enjoy here… make sure you don’t miss out." - Fear And Loathing

"Cheap Cassettes have a video for "Malnutrition" from their Ever Since Ever Since album. We think they were right in giving this song some attention. It’s a representative sounding 70’s pop nugget. This is a good reason to give it another close listen. That guitar figure that's the hook really works for us as does the comfortable groove. In the video the group comes across as very unassuming and appealing. They are one of several Rum Bar signings from another city that we want to adopt as our own." - Boston Groupie News

"Holy smokes, my brothers and sisters and friends of the revolution, if you like good music, this record is gonna shock you with it’s Replacements like greatness. It is extraordinarily, mind bogglingly good." - Veglam

"On their first LP since 2017’s All Anxious, All The Time, the band trots out 10 wildly infectious tracks that manage to top their already impressive previous output. There is a steady consistency to the music here, from the opening “She Ain’t Nothing Like You,” all the way to the closer, the mid-tempo “One Black Summer.” In between is their strongest collection yet, including a stellar cover of The Elevators’ “Your I’s Are Too Close Together” and a studio version of “Red Line Blue". - New Noise Magazine

"When I picture the band in my head, what I see is a group that plays their guitars around their knees like Keith Richards, one that plays lead guitars like The Faces, and one that just loves what they do." - Maximum Volume Music

"Here we are with their new delivery of 11 songs that have EVERYTHING to fully satisfy 'classic' Power Pop fans but within a beautifully balanced album!" - Voix de Garage Grenoble

"The ten songs on Ever Since Ever Since are a massive throwback to classic US power pop acts like Cheap Trick, The Shoes, The Romantics and particularly The Plimsouls – it appears Cheap Cassettes singer Charles Matthews shares more than a little DNA with Peter Case." - Add To Wantlist

"Pure vintage Cheap Trick/Raspberries power pop." - Kelly Ogden

"Each successive track turns this into a real thrill ride. You’ll dig ‘em all." - Richard Rossi's Power Pop News

"The Cheap Cassettes get the 70's down both sonically and feeling wise. It’s the way the group sounds and the way the songs are written. There’s something about the lilt of the chorus of “Your I’s Are Too Close Together” that is just not done now. This album really stuck out in our stream of listening. We have lots of favorites off this album." - Boston Groupie News

"If the band are new to you, but you love all things with Replacements and Dogmatics overtones, there’s certainly something here that’ll appeal to you too." - Real Gone

"The Cheap Cassettes are part of my holy trinity of favorite bands." - Lord Rutledge

"“She Ain’t Nothing Like You” kicks off like The Stones playing T-Rex songs while Charles Matthews’ sweet voice is all over the top. Then there’s a proper kind of Chuck Berry solo, just for grins." - Maximum Volume Music

"“She Ain’t Nothing Like You” has so many attributes of early seventies rock that we were getting flashbacks. They also have a strong vein of power pop in the song too and that reminds us of the groups on those Yellow Pills compilations. There’s an album coming, but for now we just listened to this 12 times." - Boston Groupie News

""She Ain't Nothin' Like You" is the lead track off of the new album (due out January 14th on Rum Bar Records). It sure sounds like a hit to me! This is the vintage Cheap Cassettes sound: classic power pop steeped in great American rock and roll. The song comes on with a cool driving guitar riff, a super-catchy chorus, and marvelously bitter lyrics. And of course you can expect a damn fine guitar solo! If you dig the Twilley/Groovies/Big Star strain of power pop, you should be all over this track." - Faster And Louder
