Hi everyone! How are you doing? We don’t wanna get all sappy but we have some bad/good news. After Fest this fall, Mixtapes is gonna go on a break. We’re not breaking up for good—eventually we want to play as Mixtapes again—but as of now we’re not sure the next time that will be.
Nothing drastic has happened—just because of life, and personal reasons, we all have reached a point where we feel like we need to go off on our own for a while. We still love playing in the band! but especially because of the way our band has always been… Because we started solely as an outlet...

A Comp For Mom is a special project I planned over the past month of my mom’s life, to release in her honor and to help raise funds for her medical bills. Now it will be released in memory of her. 100% of the proceeds will be going towards any medical bills/other expenses incurred after her passing, after that 100% of the proceeds will go into a Linda Hansen Memorial Fund.
Rescuer is selling a b-side from their new album to help raise money for one of the members' six year old nephew's kidney transplant.
My sister has decided to take a trip to Boston Children’s Hospital to get a second opinion. They are the #1 hospital in the nation for Children’s Nephrology. My family is by no means a rich family, and we unfortunately don’t have the money to completely cover the costs associated with the visit. The feeling of helplessness in this situation is entirely overwhelming.
No Sleep Records has signed Aviator. The band will release their debut full-length album later this year. A new song teaser is below.
“Of all the experiences we’ve had in the last 5 years, joining the No Sleep team is an all-time high,” says guitarist Mat Morin. “We couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and more passionate group of guys to release this record.”
No Sleep Records has signed Lee Corey Oswald. The band is currently finishing their new album, which is expected out later this year.
“We've always been huge fans of what No Sleep is doing in terms of reinstating originality to the music scene,” adds the band’s Lee Ellis. “Their roster is awesome and we're beyond stoked to work with them on this release. Fans can expect 90’s esque indie punk numbers along the lines of Weezer and Knapsack as well as more stripped down acoustic jams in the vein of what our older stuff sounds like but more focused.”
Rescuer will release their sophomore album, Anxiety Answering, on June 3rd via No Sleep Records. It was recorded with Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor). Check out a new song called "Out of Focus" on Brooklyn Vegan, featuring Andy from Frameworks and Madeline Nicholl. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order it.
“Out of Focus” is about growing apart from the people that you grew up with,” Marra adds. “My favorite thing about this song is that our friends Andy (of Frameworks) and Madeline Nicholl drove down from their wedding in Seattle and recorded some vocal parts on this song. It's like our weird wedding gift to them.”
