MIXTAPES – March Tour (03/12 – 03/30) + More!
Released in late 2010, the 6-song effort is now available on both 7″ vinyl and digital formats from Animal Style Records. The former is limited to a pressing of 500 on three colorways (orange / yellow mix, lime green, electric blue) and comes with a digital download, which includes a bonus cover of Hold Steady’s “Your Little Hoodrat Friend” available only to those who purchase the 7″. For more info go here or grab a copy from the band at a show.
In additional touring news, Mixtapes is currently booking dates for April and beyond, including a two week stint May with Dear Landlord and appearances at Stay Sweet Fest and Pouzza Fest. Confirmed shows are below although you can expect more to be added.
A Short Collection Of Short Songs is arguably Mixtapes’ strongest material to date, featuring six tracks of highly infectious, perfectly blended power pop and gritty punk rock. This tasty slab of plastic offers no shortage of dueling boy / girl vocals, buzzing guitars and sweet harmonies. You can stream all the songs at Bandcamp, or you can grab an mp3 for the song “I’m Like” here.
As always, if you’d like to attend a show or speak with the band, drop me a line here.
