Radar Recommends: Cerebral Ballzy's Bart Simpson Mixtape

If you read the Cerebral Ballzy feature in NME a couple weeks back, or saw the band live in the UK this past week or so, you'll know they're a bunch of wreckless freaks for whom normal rules don't really exist.

We met up with them in NYC (where Ballzy live) and, to recap, it basically involved lots and lots of rock'n'roll spoils, with added throwing up and blowing [stuff] up.

It was the best kind of wrecklessness, basically.

Anyway, the band always put out decent mixtapes, and their latest is no exception. Alongside a Mumdance remix of their own 'Don't Look My Way', we get cuts from the shithot Iceage (currently ripping the UK to shreds on their second tour here, and also featured in next week's mag), and other Radar faves Grazes ('Never Get Back'), Sauna Youth ('Deal Castle') and Closure ('Blistered Skin').

Oh, it's also hosted by Bart Simpson.

Download Cerebral Ballzy's 'Griptape Vol. 2' right here.
