mix: The Report Vol.1


"Our inaugural companion compilation was structured around the idea that each and every one of these songs has a perfect place in the universe. It's a pretty cheesy, new age-y claim, but, in all honesty, I think its especially true with the songs compiled for The Report. Many of them are one-off exclusives, live jams intended to be nothing but live jams, demos, or outtakes once deemed unworthy for release. The entire genus of this publication was to give a home to specific works that didn't necessarily have a place to dwell. Hopefully this tape effectively gives these songs shelter, and a place to rest their weary heads."

- M. McGregor from The Report Vol.1
