We are thrilled to bring you this mixtape of songs from both our cousins and other acts associated with our little collective. This mix is made up of bands that we’ve had the pleasure of having play at our monthly showcases. They are artists that have been both friends and sources of inspiration as well as bands that we feel strongly about supporting. Simply put, we feel spoiled to be surrounded by so many great people making such incredible music. This mixtape is our way of sharing that with you.
In addition to fostering support in our local music community, we also want to help communities on a national and international level. As such, all proceeds from this mix will be donated to Africa Community Technical Services (ACTS) projects. Recently, ACTS has raised money to build schoolhouses for the youth as well as provide clean water to communities in rural Africa. We are ecstatic to be able to do what we can to promote the incredible work these people are doing. www.acts.ca
2011 has been a great year for Distant Cousins and this mix is an audible representation of the good things behind us and the great things that are yet to come.
Thanks for listening.
