Maggie Horn’s Siren Mixtape Release

Posted on Jan 13th, 2009 by Sammy Bananas

Sometimes when I’m zoning out after hours of staring at the computer, I daydream about how Maggie Horn and I will one day have a group called “Telephones” in which we cover current pop hits.  In reality, we already do this it just doesn’t have a name yet! The promo photo will be the two of us sitting next to each other, Maggie with a ram’s horn up to hear ear and me with a banana up to mine.

Until that happens, you’ll just have to make due with Maggie’s solo material, namely her BRAND NEW Siren mixtape. It features tracks by yours truly, Blaqstarr, Curses!, Ninjasonik and more.  You can download it right here. All you NYCers best come check us out the release party tomorrow night at Webster Hall (full flyer after the jump). Don’t forget to RSVP to get in free. Then you can swing by and catch me at The Player’s Club afterward. Read More
