Boston's DIY multi-media emperor and synthesizer-player Michael Potvin
and bizarro-world MOR crooner Nathanael Bluhm began writing and
performing together in 2004. The duo became a full band in 2006 with
the addition of Tucker Dawson on drums, Patrick Dole on bass, and Joe
Wawzryn on synthesizers.

Cassette has played their subversive pop music for audiences in 11
states plus the District of Columbia. Boston's Weekly Dig has

then you don't really love electro-pop."
