oOoOO’s Actual Pain Mixtape MP3

April 21, 2010

Past mixtapes curated by macabre-leaning Seattle clothing label Actual Pain have been more explicitly goth affairs, but not so much with this oOoOO curated excursion, despite the San Francisco band's affection for gloom. Instead, they bare their electronic stripes, choosing songs that are clearly influential on their sound but not so obvious—bubblegummy freestyle, handclappy disco, midtempo R&B. Midway through, in a bout of self-awareness, they drop their own synthy, minimalist heartbreak song between an S.O.S. Band classic and a warped rap track by Mapei, and the context works: we'll now forever remember to program them on our party playlists right after Atlantic Starr. Holding our breath for the Lisa Lisa collabo! Tracklist after the jump.
