To mark their showcase at this weekend's This Is Hardcore fest in Philly, Baltimore's own A389 Records is releasing a massive online mixtape featuring some of the area's best bands (Full of Hell, Noisem, Old Lines, Ilsa, Putrisect, and more) alongside heavy-hitter artists from all over. It even features artwork from Baltimore's very own Pizza Party Printing.
A389 founder Dom Romeo says releasing the mixtape (which, like most of the label's output, is free to stream) "gives me a chance to turn listeners on to music I think is awesome whether it's current/upcoming A389 stuff, new/unsigned bands, or bands that have records out on other labels… much like the mixtapes my friends used to make for me when I was growing up, I hope this has the same effect on anyone who listens."
