Baldy Longhair Records and Fleeting Youth Records know how to do a cassette mixtape right. On September 27, which is also Cassette Store Day, the labels are teaming up to release the Two Way Tie for Last mixtape compilation. The release is packed with 38 bands from both labels, runs 97 minutes, has a ton of rare and exclusive music, and a little birdie told us that it will be cheap!
But, you can also check out two cuts from the release right now. We've got one track from Ailment called "Seein' Black," which is a frantic garage rocker. Then, we've got a live rendition of "Vanity Fair" by Crazy and the Brains which completely transforms the punk tune into an ambient soundscape before whipping the throttle to max thrust.
You can find the two new tunes here and see the tracklist below.
