Sunburnt, half-dazed and several piers down from the fluoride tide of the Korean Wave, Used Cassettes are a stomp-and-stagger rock band based in Seoul. Their tunes are served straight up like the Stones’, though maybe a bit sandier, and waterlogged by an unlikely drift of far-flung currents. The group may have met not far from Gangnam, but they hail from South Africa, Canada, and Detroit. Over the past couple years they’ve broken Korea’s rock top 40, become the first gang of foreigners to ever sign with a top-tier local label, torn it up on the Asian festival circuit, and – inevitably? – starred in a comic book series read by millions. Their new sun-baked album Rock n Rills is set to release May 6, 2016.
