Friday Mixtape: Side Projects 

Written by: Josh Gross

Rivers Cuomo of Weezer once famously blew up at a reporter that asked a question about Weezer bass player's side-project, The Rentals.

A new album just dropped from The Relationship, a band made up of second-fiddle members of Weezer, U.S. Bombs, and The Bravery, which chose its name based on the idea of collaboration instead of being lorded over by their respective auteurs. It's a solid album. And it got us thinking, "hey, there's probably one or two other side-projects out there worth highlighting."

A lot more music than you might realize is considered to be a side-project, not its creators primary occupation. Bands like Gorillaz, or Atlas Sound, or The Dead Weather, or The Postal Service, were all big hits in their own rite, but would be big hits with Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally, because they're all served on the side. Zing! So we took a buncha those bands and others and made a mixtape.
