Tapedeck: Louie Barletta


Louie Barletta‘s got a knack for always picking good music for his parts. Like many of us, a lot of Louie’s taste stems from artists he was turned on to through skate videos. From mixtapes recorded off the TV of Mike Carroll skating to Del, on up to his all-time favorite musical choice—Heath Kirchart to Joy Division. Get Louie’s take on why music is everything and why people start singing ‘Take On Me’ when they meet him for the first time.
