Can anybody still keep track of all the Mixtapes releases that keep popping up? I sure can’t! This Ohio outfit sure is a busy bunch, something that is also reflected in their upbeat happy brand of pop-punk.

“Hope Is For People” is a new 5-song 7” filled with catchy melodies, male/female vocals, lots of energy and a Metallica reference (“The New Ride The Lightning”). Which only adds to the coolness. Mixtapes are not about reinventing the wheel but they bring their songs with so much enthousiasm that it’s hard not to get caught up in it.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
