It’s that time of year again for mixtape madness. Submissions are now open for Godless America Mixtape Vol. 6 an Official Cassette Store Day 2019 release. If you ever wanted to get on one of our tapes now is your chance. We craft these curated cassettes every year for Cassette Store Day using only the songs we receive during our call for open submissions. This year submissions will run from July 1st – August 31st.

All songs, styles, and peoples are welcome we will listen to everything. No promise it will make it on the tape but we do review every entry. There is no limit to how many songs you can submit. But we usually will only use one song per artist to keep it fair and balanced. So send us your best shit.

GODLESS AMERICA MIXTAPE VOL 6 SUBMISSION FORM

Out Today – Hyperlink! – Preparation H

Preparation H by Hyperlink! is an album firmly rooted in the hip-hop beat tape tradition of sample-based loops while vehemently sticking to the attitude, posture, and ethos of punk rock, and is what happens when a kid raised on The Ramones grows up to idolize crate-digging masters such as Madlib, DJ Shadow, J Dilla, and Kanye West. This collection of short (and not so short) tracks clash together with a plunderphonics-type incongruity, mixing guitar-based punk with more avant-garde and downright strange compositions. With the help of movie sound bites and other random internet media, the album tells a loose narrative of expressing one’s self no matter how uncomfortable it may make you or anyone around you feel. But even if you don’t give half a shit about that, it’s still, at its core, a fun and provocative time with a little bit of something for everyone. Hyperlink! himself hopes this album would be the soundtrack to your next skate sesh, graffiti run, or backseat fucking.

Track 2: Louder Than Words
Track 6: Cupakes
Track 7: Swamp Gas
Track 21: Violent Vaporwave

Modern Mixtape Vol. 1 a Wet Nurse Tour gift

Today Godless America alumni Wet Nurse kick off their 2019 Canadian Adventure tour we have been friends for almost a decade now. From playing with Nina in Tam Tam The Sandwich Man & The Magical Sugar Cookies and Susana in ButterQueen to sharing a home with the twins for the better part of ten years. They have become more like my adopted family after I washed up on the streets of Orlando back in 2006.

I am so super proud of them and all the things they have accomplished since we cut that first EP together back in 2010 in the living room of iLLHouse. Now they have a brand new EP out on State Champion Records and they are on their way to playing Pouzza Fest in Montreal. Complete dates listed below.

Back in March I ended up moving out of iLLHouse now it wasn’t far just up the street but this is the first time in a while that they are leaving for a tour and I’m not gonna be the guy taking care of Walter(Nina’s cat) and the house. I felt that it was only right to make them a very special mixtape for the van. Modern Mixtape Vol. 1 is the first in what I hope to be a series of new mixtapes which will mainly be online playlists but crafted in the style of classic mixtapes. Each playlist will be made into a one-off physical cassette and gifted to somebody. This tape was given to Wet Nurse right before they left for tour. You can listen to the whole mixtape in the Youtube playlist below there are links in the description for Spotify and Google Play Music.

Modern Mixtape Vol. 1 Playlist

Tongues of Fire – Everyone Hates Us

The Ides of March are quickly approaching and we are proud to present our first release of 2019. We’ve had our eye on Asheville North Carolina’s Tongues of Fire since they first started popping in down here in the sunshine state a couple years ago. They quickly started to turn some influential heads in the city beautiful and little birds all over town were tweeting you gotta see these dudes live!

So naturally after fellow Godless family the Bubble Boys starting swapping sweat and shows with these mountain misfits we all became fast friends. They submitted a track for Godless America Mixtape Vol. 5 and we started talking about working together in the future.

Most bands fit cleanly within a genre but Tongues of Fire don’t. At their heart they are a punk band, their shows are unhinged, the music is straightforward and hard-hitting, there is no trace of pomp or excessiveness but they are accessible and there is a well-crafted feel to their songs. The melodies are catchy, production clean and the instrumentals deceptively complex. They have many contemporaries and influences like PUP, Surf Cuse, Bloc Party and The Fall of Troy but can’t be compared to them. There aren’t bands out there that are like Tongues of Fire. They are themselves, and far beyond driven to spread this to the world.

Well folks the future is now! Its been a long bumpy ride on the road to making this album but we made it and we hope you dig it too.

Pre-Order Today! First 30 people to buy this cassette get a personal song written for them by the band. But that clock is ticking down to the street date March 1st, 2019 so you better grip now or cry later.

Tongues of Fire will also be hitting the road in support of this release blazing a trail all the way to SXSW and back.

Happy Cassette Store Day!!

BLOOM releases ‘Lamentation’

BLOOM
BLOOM – is a powerpop/rock ‘n’ roll/punk group hailing from Chicago. BLOOM is also a state of being.

We have been working hard behind the scenes in the back alleyways. Making deals and spinning wheels to try to secure some primo jams for your ear-holes. This is our latest find BLOOM. We caught wind of this windy city band thru the digital grapevine. So when they asked if we wanted to put out there next EP we jumped at the chance.

It’s up for grabs in all the digital stores and streams coming soon to an audio compact disc near you stay tuned for details.
