Budding label Cassingle and Loving It Records unveils their very first release this evening—and while it's not technically a cassingle (the Happening's Piranha runs eight songs long) it is most certainly a cassette. The latest local label to embrace those magnetic ribbons of tape that spooled through (and, every now and then, got stuck in) Walkmans and car decks during the '80s and '90s, C.A.L.I. is brought to you by the good folks who run the Record Room, the Portland bar/record store that sits right on the border of North and Northeast Portland and boasts plenty of cassettes alongside the racks of vinyl. The Happening is a trio fronted by C.A.L.I.'s Em Brownlowe (formerly of Swallows) along with bassist Shannon Wade and drummer Adrianne Sharrock, and their music is a perfect fit for the throwback medium: '90s-vintage indie rock with flecks of folk, grunge, riot grrrl, and plenty of old-fashioned guitar crunch for good measure.
