MIXTAPE: On The Tune Mixtape Vol. 5

On The Tune Mixtape Vol. 5

It’s certainly been a while between mixtapes, but hopefully this is a triumphant return to form! We’ve got something for everyone with this one. Guitar-based songs, softer tracks, a Talking Heads cover, sample-based electronic songs, hip-hop mash-ups, acoustic ditties, and some post-rock to finish everything up.

Plus, it’s all completely legal. I asked every single artist or their management if I could use the tracks. No guilty conscience for anyone involved. It feels nice, doesn’t it?

Enough of my ramblings though. Feel free to peruse this fine tracklisting and download the mixtape at your leisure. Happy listening!

P.S. Cover art is by the incredibly handsome Michael “Sea Monkeys” Forrest.

I’ve already reviewed Elgen and Johnny Utah’s “The Welcoming Party”, so look out for reviews of Coptic Soldier & Miriam Waks, Mind Over Matter, and Phatchance over the next month.

MIXTAPE: On The Tune Mixtape Vol. 2

Hey. Got another mixtape for you here. This time it’s a mixture of bands from a few countries. You’ll also notice I decided to begin and end it with songs from Phatchance. I don’t normally put two songs from the one artist on a mixtape, but I thought it seemed appropriate. They’re both really good.

This one features a bit more hip-hop, some post-rock, some electronica, and some good ol’ fashioned indie-rock. One song has a particularly folky vibe, and another features a banjo! I’m hoping everyone can find something to enjoy in there.

Thanks again to all the great artists for the free mp3’s, and don’t forget to spread the word about the mix! Oh. And lastly, for frequent updates on mixtapes and music news/reviews, become a fan of my Facebook page here. Happy listening!

Tracklist:

1. Phatchance – Inkstains

2. MiniBoone – Cool Kids Cut Out of the Heart Itself

3. The Trivs – Survival Guide For Forgetful Friends

4. The Walk Ons – Forget You

5. Of the Red Sea – Easy

6. Washington – Clementine

7. Timothy Nelson & The Infidels – Sleeping Alone

8. Bang Bang Boss Kelly – Lone Rider

9. Mind Over Matter – It’s Not A Secret

MIXTAPE: On The Tune Mixtape Vol. 1 – Aussie Indie

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.

Tracklist:

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

Download

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.
