Artist: Cassettes Won't Listen Track: "Large Radio" Album: Small-Time Machine Listen
The bedroom project of multi-instrumentalist Jason Drake, who has recorded under many names, has some great singles, including "Large Radio" and "Metronomes." Elsewhere, many will run into what some call the Dylan Conundrum -- cool songs, grating voice. On the first two tracks from his latest EP, his voice sounds just fine embedded in many layers of synth and drum machine. Drake has seven gigs listed at South by Southwest, so if you're heading down there (like Chris DeVille), you can likely find a slot to check him out.
