Here's another edition from the Midday Veil Tour Mixtape Series - a mixtape circa 2003 from Brooklyn on the eve of the band's arrival in NYC. Be sure to catch them Sunday at Silent Barn, and Monday at Cake Shop.
Seattle band Midday Veil embark on a nationwide tour today that takes them to SXSW, LA Psych Fest, and many other fine venues across the country. A call was put out to their friends and neighbors for mixtapes to drive to in their tour van which is equipped with a cassette player, and having boxes upon boxes of old cassettes, dj slow gladly provided a melange of tapes from years gone by.
I'll be posting a tape here every few days or so, and to keep it interesting I'm leaving off track lists as the band is listening blind, and to be honest, I don't know them all myself.
Hope you enjoy the ride, and be sure to catch Midday Veil's powerful live show in a city near you.
Midday Veil start a nationwide tour tomorrow. Their new record is called The Current. I was lucky to get a copy early in exchange for providing some old mixtapes for their tour van which is equipped with a cassette player. Stay tuned for more on the tapes they'll be touring to.
