a sideproject of the belgian wonderchild wio, who already released two albums
on (k-raa-k) records. in6 made a track which will particulary be enjoyed by dogs.
short, very quiet, but i can assure you it's a very romantic popsong. |
is probably the most talked about girl in the philladelphia indiepopscene.
she also is a member of rabbit in red (also on this compilaiton) and boyracer,
and recorded some tracks under her own name, accompanied by family and friends.
On "Annelies' room", Jens beautiful voice is accompagnied by a
harp and cello. some of the most amazing dreampop we've ever heard round here
The track by Appendix
out is definately the most poppy song we ever heard from the
band. on 'I feel like an elf' Alasdair Roberts seems to be particulary happy,
and it seems he wants to celbrate this with a more uptempo track. very different
from the rest of the impressive Appendix out catalog (that has releases on labels
as drag city, palace records or secretly canadian), but still typical Appendix
out. You'll love them even more after hearing this song....
The belgian lofi duo Pernath
also contributed one of their happier songs. The band seems to move away more
from their original influences like folk implosion, and comes up with a more shoegazing
alike track. e-mail
From down under, we have
Sodastream on this cd-compilation. the band is
known from their EP's and albums on labels as tugboat and hausmusik. very nice
songwriting. Sunday best is taken from their ultra-rare debut EP. It is very hard
not to think of Nick Drake or Belle and Sebastian when hearing this track. The
band is a regular at the John Peel show, and at the VPRO-radio. e-mail
comes up with a casiocore track. The band has amassed 12+ small keyboards,
most of them mid-1980's casios in the sk and mt series. very nice melodies, straight
out of pittsburgh.
Another veteran of the shrimper-scene Will
Simmons The man just doesnt seem to slow down his output,and
the most exciting thing is that also his quality stays just as good. This is also
a keyboard oriented track, which proves that mr. simmons is more than a guitar-man
(in case you doubted this) e-mail
the 100 lists
is another pseudonym of Eleanor Whitney the ex-frontlady of liggie wog. The girl
behind octopus head records moved from portland maine to portland oregon, and
that seemed to be the moment do some more song-writing, hometaping, and making
new zines. keep an eye on her. e-mail
And than we have
Bingo trappers, the infamous masters of dutch lofi. after
all these years, they finally seem to get the attention they deserve. after the
release of heir album on animal world, they toured the us, and at the same time,
they released a tape in morc's soup vs.
potatoes series. we still have copies of that one, and i should really recommend
you to buy this one as well... homepage
We're also extremely proud to have
Fuck on this compilation. These heores of
american indiepop handed in a track from their rare 'baby loves a funny bunny'
album (the one wrapped in a matchbox) After all these years, we still cant get
enough of the track '22 no'. a sing-along for the entire family. Every decent
karaoke bar should have it on its repertoire. homepage
in Red is one of the best
boy-meets-girl popbands around. their track 'angel' was recorded live at a morc
evening in ghent, during the first european tour of the band. This track shows
that, even stripped down to the very core, rabbit in red tracks have a very refreshing
sound. tip! e-mail
the solo-project of Andreas Oberschelp, who played in lots of ok math-rock bands.
but his solo-output is just great. 'Hide and sleep' is the debut of this german
tourmanager. references? think of the bristolsound and the german Hausmusik scene.
Shy rights movement
arose from the ashes of Richie Cunningham, right from the scottish highlands.
On this track, SRM is Mark + Stephen. Just as intimate as always. homepage
A boy named Thor
is in fact Jason Corace. This track reminded us a lot of his live appearances,
during which he only uses his acoustic guitar and his voice. 'Three in a bed'
goes beyond the regular singer-songwriter structure. very talented guy, amazing
track. I wonder how long it will take before this track will be recognized as
best song of the 21st century. homepage
is a collaboration of Tine Boerjan (1m54) and Lobke Dhespeel (loobke, mote)
only a piano, melodica and vocals, which makes the song very fragile. recorded
when breezr was performing live in lauwe, supporting movietone and crescent e-mail
The ordinary seaman
is Filip Gheysen, the man who also runs glasvocht records. The ordinary seaman
released tons of stuff, including collaborations with wio and köhn. his track
on this compilation is definately amongst his best output yet. If you like
this one, do give a listen to his morctape: 'turning
comes from the Robotech character of the same name, who is a quasi-princess singer
on the superstructure/space city Macross. This space princess who could warm hearts
with her seraphic voice as the citizens of Macross fought off space aliens and
simultaneously dealt with their salient emotions. I guess the same goes for the
band, in some way. Just skip the aliens part, and enjoy the piano track. And check
his tape 'since before inertia' at the same
is normally a guitar-piano/cello duo, but on this track, you'll only hear
the guitarsounds. definately one of the most underestimated belgian bands around.
in case you dont have it yet, buy their debut tape mummer
Brothers comes up with a track that
is even more stripped down than the 'bitter
dream ' tape. only two guitar layers remain. very short
track as well, you can see it a sample of the latest steps in
the evolution of circle brothers. homepage
The compilation has a very exclusive collaboration on it: Gang
wizard with wio The mysterious
californian noise-rockers do some sort of battle with wio, and the result is magical.
more laidback than we're used of gang wizard, and more hectic than a regular wio-track,
fully instrumental and very epical. homepage
You probably know Larz
from his solo output on bbptc, and his work with psychon troopers and psychon
mist (of whom we still have the tape 'fompas'
for sale) recordings at home. Forget these references. this is the new larz,
completely electronic. good for a very weird dance-party! homepage
are the ones to end the cd. when the energetic 'people like us are like black
holes' is over, you're ready to push the play button again. and start again, from
