Ah, the mishmash, one of my two or three favorite groups that basically just performs all the time and never releases anything, thereby leaving me to drift hopelessly through a directionless life with neither succor nor support. I wish they did more stuff! It’s hard to stay mad at them, though, because they rub shoulders with excellent company and I think are largely satisfied with being their best selves in a milieu that appreciates them. But anyway! There’s music, and you can get it. Thanks for a retweet campaign involving one of those demos that I’m always kvetching about, they have a full song to listen to, and then to download for free, and hey look get to it:
We never get enough new stuff from the mishmash, gang, and that makes me sad. The little rockers remain one of my favorite semi-recent debutantes, but it feels like forever since we got a whole complete new track out of them, or at least one that we, thousands of miles from chika stages, can really and fully access. So what a gift then that they came along the other day with a completely new song that you can and should download for free right this very minute!
That’s only good for a few more days, so get to it! And if you really just want to hear the song, or would prefer to hear it in total before downloading:
Yes, I too can hear that on a Punk-o-Rama CD (the weird part of the back half where the Epitaph bands you never heard from again usually appear), why do you ask? It’s a fun little bop!
The mishmash! I was practically giddy when this showed up in the ol’ video queue. Despite not getting nearly as much love from other quarters as I wish they had, the mishmash (formerly just “mishmash”) were among my personal favorite debutantes from last year, with a kind of maturity and understated comfort zone that just doesn’t exist much in a field dominated by try-hard teenagers.
In not even three quarters of a year since their debut in the springtime, the mishmash has had a pretty good rise, and it’s culminating in their first album, due on the 13th. And with albums come what? Videos! Here you go:
