Album Of The WeekMixtapes, How To Throw A Successful Party
I had never heard of Mixtapes six months ago; since then, I've fallen head over heels for the band. They are simply amazing, pop-punk perfection. How To Throw A Successful Party was originally given as a free download with preorders for 2011's Maps & Companions, but on October 30th, you'll be able to purchase the nine-track acoustic album. If you were a fan of Even On The Worst Nights, you'll love this too.
Favorite tracks: "6 P.M. (How To Enjoy The Scenic Route)," "10 P.M. (Safe)," and the anthem "5 A.M. (How To Throw A Successful Party)"
