Part four of the Clandestine Cassette series comes at you with whopping 90-minutes of music to further excel the gaul-laden flamboyance of second annual Spy Music fest. Two weeks of shows; fantasy driven collaborations; signature beers; limited edition lavender 7-inches – a 90-minute cassette is but another cog in the Northern Spy machine, one that should not be overshadowed by the vibrant big picture. 5,429 seconds (the actual runtime is 90-minutes and 29-seconds) of virgin sounds created by eight artists appearing at the festival leaves you wondering: could I ask for anything more? The answer to that comes in the form of another question: would you expect anything less?
