Mixtapes have created something that will never be forgotten.
Mixtapes' Ordinary Silence has a terrible album title. Ordinary is the last word I'd use to describe their exceptional blend of indie and pop punk, and it certainly isn't silent. Dual vocals can be a hard thing to master, but you can find it in perfected glory on Ordinary Silence. Sure, there a couple weak spots ("Happy and Poor"), but it's excused after hearing the following track "I Think I Broke It" which is sure to be your favorite song of summer 2013. I can only imagine how difficult it is to fit as much beauty into forty-seven seconds as they did on "Gravel", but somehow they accomplished it. Ordinary Silence is infectious, and blew my expectations away. Mixtapes have created something that will never be forgotten.
