RAVE: “Catch The Throne” The Mixtape: Game of Thrones

As if Game of Thrones cannot get any better (and cooler), HBO commissioned a mixtape for the hit and critically acclaimed series, via Launch Point Records. A MIXTAPE. Sounds ostensible in writing, but it really does exist. And it works. All of 10 tracks open with lines borrowed from storylines of all three seasons. The show represents strong themes of conflict, power, grave wit, and different forces at play. The idea of creating this mixtape to capture those themes within the context of music is a stroke of genius.
