Description

This is the music video for the song "Hope Is For People" by a band called Mixtapes from Ohio.

"The band plays music that will draw you in, reminding you of that first time you heard one of those songs like the Replacements' "I Will Dare" -- a song that hits you in the gut, making your jaw drop." - pitchmusic blog

Mixtapes is a band from Cincinnati, Ohio and Detroit, Michigan. You can download our album for free by clicking HERE please download it and share it with anyone!. We put alot into the album and we hope you can relate to it in some way or another. 

You sit there, in front of your speakers, wondering why the hell this band isn't currently the hot shit on Pitchfork. Then you think, "Well, maybe I can keep this my secret." You don't want to share them, afraid that someone you despise will start liking them, removing that shiny gloss of awesome from the band. It's so rare anymore to find a band that a band that hasn't been hyped to hell, that even now, typing this, I'm worried that I'm overselling Mixtapes. -Pitchmusic

The alternating male and female vocals club you over the head with cute, but they also manage to compliment each other without sounding gimmicky or contrived. Ten songs in eighteen minutes–can’t argue with that. Late ’90s emo undercurrents? Sure, but none of these sing-songy anthems will drive you to cutting. One listen and it should come as no surprise Mixtapes lists both the Promise Ring AND the Gin Blossoms as influences on their MySpace page. -crawdaddy!

Maps is a fantastic debut from a young band who will hopefully continue to grow and release more material. I cannot urge you enough to check out this release. Punks who have opened their hearts to the sweet sounds of Discount and Lemuria will find a lot to love here, and likewise the indie kids who still fondly reminisce about Rainer Maria could possibly find themselves drawn into Mixtapes’ sound. -guitars, drums, phones, saxaphones .. ..
