It’s Record Store Day! That means our split with @missingvvolf, @hardbeathb and Wall Market Racketeers is up for free download from now until the end of time. Cassettes are still $4 and it’d be cool if you bought one so I can throw money at the artists that helped make this possible. You can pick it up at vcrpop.bandcamp.com

Pine Trees Lines (Told Slant cover) - Mixtape Minus

I really love Told Slant and this song. I couldn’t decide between recording I am Not or this, but I decided that I felt more in the mood for Pine Tree Lines. I hope you like it. Also, a plane flew over my house at the end and it sounds really cool. Xo.

We have our name written on the wall in two spots in this green room and in both places someone crossed out “Minus” and wrote “bitch dicks.” We have literally no idea who. It’s one of the funniest things I have ever seen in my life. Who even cares about us enough to do that haha?

This is important, so please read.

I think one of the most disappointing things is the amount of blatant sexism in the world and for the matters at hand, the ‘punk’ scene. You’d think after so long and after all the progress we’ve made, that would be dead. You’d think that in a community that was made as a safe place for everyone, it would be more accepting of everyone. It’s not. And that sucks.

There’s still this confusion of macho and rock and roll going hand in hand. There’s the notion that girls can’t be tough. There are all of these made up things that imply that your gender and how tough you are actually matter when making music. They don’t. Why in the world would any of those things matter?

Apparently, some people at Studio Seven are just blown away by the idea of a girl singing in a rock and roll band. I’ve always been treated poorly by the majority of staff at Studio Seven, but last night I was helping a friend’s band by playing bass- all of the bands went up to the door guy to get stamped. He stamped every single one of the guys, including a manager, without saying a single word, but as soon as he saw this girl who happened to be the singer for one of the bands, he stopped and asked, “Oh, are you going to be on stage tonight?” That is absolutely disgusting. The worst part is, EVERY BAND THAT WASN’T THE ONE I WAS PLAYING IN HAD A FEMALE VOCALIST. And he still acted like it was this crazy, out of the ordinary, foreign thing.

To quote Pat, the Bunny, “If there’s still girls growing up to believe they can’t sing rock and roll, then I don’t want to live in this world anymore.”

As a band, we’ve always said our shows are a safe place for everyone. We decided a long time ago not to play Studio Seven anymore due to their general rudeness and the crappy management of their venue, but after this, we will never ever play Studio Seven again because it is not a safe space for everyone. At least, I won’t with any band or project of mine. I talked to Jesse and he’s on the same page.

All people are people- treat them accordingly. Treat them equally. It’s not about men and women. It’s about human decency.

Love always,
Mixtape Minus

The ’90s Song That Closes Out Your Life - Mixtape Minus

Everyone’s faking sitcom fantasy
Photoshop family
Chasing big dreams on the floor of the living
I don’t know where I’ll be in twenty years
When I make it, the lights will turn off

I’m spinning and I’m lost
Power lines in the snow
