In case you haven’t noticed, the May CMJ Mixtape is now live on the site for your downloading pleasure. It features tracks from CocoRosie, Pure X, Poliça, Kylesa, Japanther and and you should probably go download it right now. Typically a new month means that the previous month’s CMJ Mixtape disappears into digital abyss, never to be heard from again, but this month we’re trying something new.
Through a partnership with Google Play, you can now listen to and download the April CMJ Mixtape. That’s right, new music from Thee Oh Sees, the Postal Service, Telekinesis, Bleached, the Thermals and more. It’s available here. April’s mixtape has a little bit of everything: raucous garage rock, reflective folk ballads, orchestral noise music, sunny indie pop and more. It’s an eclectic and essential sample of what you may have missed in April and with Google Play you can also purchase the full albums of the band’s featured on the mixtape. So check out the mixtape and support some artists!
