Verbicide Offers Free Special Edition Mixtape of Unheard Songs

Verbicide is giving you access to their latest free digital mixtape. The company worked long and hard with a bunch of fine folks to put together a collection of music that you haven’t heard yet anywhere else.

Featured on this mixtape is a new release from Darryl Jenifer of the legendary hardcore band Bad Brains (courtesy of ROIR). We’ve got the brand new Spokes track, “We Can Make It Out,” courtesy of Montreal-based Ninja Tune. They picked a track from Ottawa-based Philly Moves, winner of the Readers’ Choice Award in the 2010 Verbicide Unsigned contests. They also selected a track from the Judges’ Choice Award winner, Annie Bethancourt.

This mixtape marks the first public release of The Mynabirds’ forthcoming holiday single, “All I Want is Truth (for Christmas)” (Saddle Creek Records). The magazine has also included unheard songs from Broughton’s Rules (Relapse Records), The Sky Life (Deep Elm), Oh Land (Epic Records), and a whole lot more.
