Remember how I said I was working on a surprise? Yeah, well this is it.
I was sick of seeing other blogs giving away cool music while mine didn’t. So I decided I’d go around and find a tonne of bands who would let me use their music in a mixtape. I want to do this legally and do the right thing by the bands. So I sent out e-mails to many a manager and band, asking for permission to use their songs in a free mixtape. Quite a few didn’t reply, but many did. For which I am quite grateful.
So as a consequence of this, I now proudly present to you the first volume of my On The Tune Mixtape. As you’ve probably noticed, this one is themed around Australian independent bands, but future ones may not be themed at all. We’ll see how it goes.
1. Kill Teen Angst – Gen Y
2. Lovers of Modern Art – I Got The Shakes
3. Goodnight Owl – Maps & Compasses
4. Faux Pas – Chasing Waterfalls
5. Guineafowl – Botanist
6. Kid Sam – We’re Mostly Made of Water
7. Emperors – Favourite Colours
8. The Weekend People – Mascara
9. The Good China – All Nothing
10. Polaroid Fame – Face Off
11. Elgen and Johnny Utah – When The Rain Hits ft. Steve Hollins
12. Sleep Decade – Colour In Between The Lines
13. Tyrian Dawn – Colours to the Mast
14. The Jezabels – Hurt Me
This had been downloaded at least 250 odd times before it was taken down. Why? Because apparently it contained artists like The Black Eyed Peas and Rihanna. Clearly, it does not.
Thanks for that IFPI. You also seem to be ignoring my e-mails regarding the matter. This is why bloggers who operate legitimately and legally with regard for musicians get annoyed with you.
The above is the re-uploaded version everyone.

Just a quick shout-out to all the artists/managers for allowing me to use these tracks! I really appreciate it.
Also; feel free to (in fact, please) spread the word about the mixtape! Just link back to my blog post here. Thanks!
I’ll see you guys in 3 weeks! Most likely. Unless I get some spare time.
