After receiving a cease-and-desist order from actor Kevin Spacey, Jason Drake (aka Cassettes Won’t Listen) had to change the name of his upcoming album from KEVINSPACEY to … EVINSPACEY. But that won’t stop him from getting the word out. Drake’s recently released 101 Mixtape for stream/download strategically capitalizes on the almost-lawsuit, bolstered by a hefty dose of summery electro-pop and a bizarre intro from This American Life‘s Ira Glass. There’s a handful of not-so-secret messages plugging the album’s release date, along with voicemail messages from friends wondering about the controversy. Subtle.
