Two songs ('Carnivals' and 'You Won't Stop'), were featured on the Channel 4 comedy The Inbetweeners. Their debut album 'The Art Of...' was released in 2009 in the UK on New Label, New Danger and in Japan under the Pony Up imprint.
New Cassettes finished the final mixing of their second album, Winterhead, with Grammy Award-winning songwriter and producer Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and sound engineer Geoff Sanoff in October 2010. While in the states working on the album the band took a break from the studio to do a special ASCAP-hosted showcase for TV and movie executives at the Gibson Showroom in Los Angeles. The show was a success. MTV became big fans of the New Cassettes after their short stop in Los Angeles and ask them to join the new 'HYPE' venture between MTV and Extreme Music.
