Paper + Plastick has a free We Are The Union sampler available here.

Regarding this particular release P+P head honcho Vinnie Fiorello said

“If you don’t know WE ARE THE UNION then here’s 3 songs for you to get to know them. A little Less Than Jake, add Wonder Years, and a bit of Lifetime all rolled together. We have always loved WATU and now you have a short musical history lesson to know why”.

Mixtapes Releasing “These Are Us” Digital Rarities For Free Download

mixtapes these are us

Mixtapes is releasing a free digital rarities compilation via Paper + Plastick. A few words on the band:

“…..I was at Eric’s house the other day, who is the guy that recorded and engineered all of the Mixtapes records. We were going through stuff and joking around and realized we had quite a few songs no one had ever heard,including myself more than once or twice. A few of them I thought “why on earth didn’t we put this on a record?”. Then I remembered that Weezer also didn’t put Susanne on a record and we all make mistakes. At that point I decided we should put out a free download of all of our unreleased material, rare material, splits and just things in general that might not be so easy to get anymore. After clearing it with the suits and tracking down all of the songs, in part thanks to some listeners I did it. So here it is, sequenced with artwork and ending with something very special. We are really proud of the songs and there’s no reason they shouldn’t be available if you like our band so please download it, share it, post it etc etc. The last song on this record is something near and dear to me. One day while recording “Even on the worst nights” everyone went to breakfast. I stayed behind, clicked record in the studio and put myself in the mindset of a high school non conformist goth kid. What came out was 15 minutes of completely freestyled angst that I could never repeat or pull off again, so please while listening feel my pain. But really, we are excited to release this all on one record and thanks to Vinnie for putting it out and being the best, we love you!
