Incoming: the Dirty Nil – “Summer Mixtape”

Last year, Dundas, ON rockers the Dirty Nil dropped the pretty rad single “Fuckin’ Up Young” backed by the equally awesome “Verona Lung.”

Now, after impressing with appearances at Canadian Music Week and NXNE,  the boys are back with a new 4-track summer mixtape, which they’re offering up for free via their Bandcamp page.

The mixtape includes the aforementioned “Fuckin’ Up Young,” for which they shot a video which you can watch below. It also includes three new tracks.

In the press release for the mix, the band blame “drinking, playing shows, shooting guns, blowing shit up, breaking limbs, recording, skating, fireworks, drinking, eating french fries, forgetting things, movies, fighting each other, rock n roll, going to shows, and drinking” as the reasons behind the long gap between releases. Seems reasonable to me.

The mix is only available until Monday, September 24, after which it will “be gone forever.” The band’s next seven-inch drops the next day, September 25.

The band leave us with the parting words: “Remember to play the songs as LOUD as humanly possible!” Natch.
