Over many years as an enthusiast of underground music and especially of the cassette tape format, I have amassed quite a collection. One of my ongoing projects has been to digitize, preserve, and share as much of this audio content as I am able to. Beginning in 2021, I gave this project a name, The Media Hoard. I’m an amateur at this, but then so are most of the creators whose work I’m concerning myself with. Expect to find here lots of noise and experimental music, demos and self-releases from little-known bands, and the lost personal mixtapes and home recordings of both friends and strangers.

If you are an artist whose work I have posted and you would rather I had not, do not hesitate to contact me and I will gladly remove the material at your request. If you have something you feel belongs here that isn’t yet, also contact me and I’ll definitely consider adding it. If you find a broken download link or image on any of these posts, contact me and I’ll try to fix it. Also, I cross-post a lot of this stuff on my archive.org account.

If you’d like to show your appreciation by surprising me with a bit of funds to apply toward my hosting bills and equipment, I’m $lofidragon on CashApp and @Chick-Douglass on Venmo.
