As I Look to the Future Comp. 7inch

Just a quick one for everybody. I picked this comp up by chance a few months back based soley on the fact that it was a few bucks and had an early Bane song that seemed to pre-date the 7inch that the song appears on (though it did appear on their demo tape).

Sure enough, the song, "Lay the Blame", doesn't sound like the demo tape version (granted I have a rip of undetermined origins).

The other three bands are okay, but nothing here to really go crazy for. It is a nice glimpse into some things going on a while back as the bands are from all over (Texas, Mass, NY, and CT) with a little punk and some HC. Bane is by far the winner for me, but perhaps some of you also get to pick up a song from a local band you loved (because I myself am of the same type and definitely have some bands in my collection that I wouldn't like if they weren't local bands I had been raised on)

Sincerity- It's For the Kids, Right? (It Follows Mixtape #1)

Still alive. Summer always tends to get the best of me with work cranking up another 5 or 6 notches. Add in the approaching birth of my first child and there you have it!

However, don't despair, the blog is alive and well. Ive continued doing things on my end to ensure that there are plenty of posts to come. It just takes a bit longer.

This time out we have a Mixtape of songs that have both been posted on the blog and have yet to be posted on the blog. This is something I have kicked around as an idea for some time and the formula of posted and unposted seems to give it a feel that its not just some shit you already have, arranged into a singular download.

Time was spent picking these 22 tracks and arranging them in a way that flows together to give the whole thing some flow and pacing. These were pulled from a larger playlist I had on my ipod for a few months and imported and edited so that they will go into your respective music player as ordered parts of the mixtape as well as still containing the info. embedded in them as to what actual release they came from. Enjoy!
