Mixtapes, Merit, Churchkey, We've Got Ours 17+ Early Warnings (Music) Recommended

When: Thu., Sept. 18, 7 p.m. 2014

Cincinnati pop-punk group Mixtapes put a photo of a wooden cutout of an oversize soft-serve cone on the cover of their 2013 sophomore album, Ordinary Silence (No Sleep), and like ice cream when you’ve had one bite too many, their clean, sugary tunes can sometimes seem queasily saccharine. Compared to the band’s earlier releases, Ordinary Silence subdues the diabetes-inducing sweetness, allowing the life-affirming pop songwriting to flourish. —Leor Galil, 2013
