The C&T Mix Tape Project, Vol. IV: Atlanta Alternative
Admittedly, "alternative" is a bit of a meaningless label. That said, today's mix represents what for the moment I'll call alternative bands from Atlanta's vibrant music scene. Many of these bands could have just as easily been included in the rock or indie mixes, but were included here due to practical constraints.
Several rockin' bands are included (KillGordon, Snowden, Aviator). There is a bit of dream pop (The Blue Hour), pop-punk (The Swear), Southern-tinged rock (Gates of Berlin), and even a touch of hip-hop (Heavy Mojo). Creve Coeur, Y.O.U., and Rantings of Eva sound as if they're ready to jump straight from this mix onto the FM dial. The pained acoustic contribution by Sovus Radio is a standout, as is the sexy little number by jazz/rock act Telegram. Apologies that the Slack Republic tune isn't an original, but that's all they had available as a free/legal download.
Individual tracks can be snagged below. You can also download the entire mixtape via Rapidshare complete with uniform track names, ID3 tags, and a playlist (.m3u) file.
