With Mikal Cronin’s excellent new record out this week, the listening public is getting yet another nudge to remind it that, hey, garage rock is back and it’s pretty great. Weirdly hip Cartoon Network brand Adult Swim is hip to that vibe and, in collaboration with Dr. Pepper, has just put out Garage Swim, a mixtape chock full of grimey riffs and subtle burns. Made up of tracks from acts like the aforementioned Cronin, Black Lips, Thee Oh Sees, King Tuff, and King Khan, Garage Swim would be a solid investment even if it weren’t absolutely free to download. Grab it over on Adult Swim’s page and, while there, check out interviews with King Tuff and Cronin made by the video masterminds over at Yours Truly.
