March Mixtape Madness

1. Divide the Sea performs “In Knowing, Triumph” from their album Man on Blood & Ink Records. This is the leadoff track because a March mix must come in like a lion, and I assure you that Divide the Sea does just that.

2. Lee Abramson performs “The Rose is Gone” . Lee is an unsigned artist whose ambient music is inspired by the poetry of 13th century mystic poet, Rumi. Check out a bunch more free songs at… you may even be lucky enough to have a poem written especially for you, as Lee did for me:

Watching his owner teach inmates
Strummer can do everyday tricks
He’ll do whatever he dictates
With his head out the Toyota Matrix

3. Jason Mundok performs “Good Coffee Blues” from his upcoming album due out in April. Since meeting Jason at Lancaster Art Walk last year, I’ve tried to keep up with his endeavors. A great musician who also lends his talents to the Irish folk duo Fire in the Glen. Look for a review of their latest next week.

4. Kiki Pau performs “An Old Song” from White Mountain. This track was featured as a free download two weeks ago, but I felt the need to promote it again… download it and find out why.

5. Weekend Stars performs “Obvious” , the closing track from their self-released album Tambourine Girl. This cool indie band has great pop sensibilities and reminds me of two bands I have enjoyed through the years, one big name and one you haven’t heard of: Train (yeah, the “Drops of Jupiter” guys) and Jerk Records’ staple act of yesteryear, Million Time Winner.

6. A Common Year performs “Solstice” from their debut album Between Cities. Casey, guitarist and vocalist, said to me:

I can’t claim to know who we sound like, but a few of our main influences are Jimmy Eat World, Brand New, Acceptance, blink-182 and TBS.

Find out for yourself…

7. Andrew and Kristi’s Toast performs “Alone in My Principles” . This track, off of It’s Raining, It’s Roaring is but a small taste of their original and unique sound. Check back Monday for another free track from this great indie act.

8. Sail by the Stars performs “I Wish I May, I Wish I Might” from the upcoming The Night Owl EP. Josh is a one man band and seems to have quite the Interweb following. This track is the lead track for the EP, due to drop in April.

9. Cook & UNO have become a TPM staple. Here they perform “Throwback“, a hot track from The Overflow. This track is hosted on a great site you should check out, Sphere of Hip Hop, and then go check out the new Cook & UNO music video below…

10. Dala performs “Hockey Sweater” . A cool track by these lovely Canadian women, it is featured on their 2007 release Who Do You Think You Are. Their newest album, Everyone is Someone, will be featured on TPM soon. For now, enjoy this track and check out their new video on YouTube.
