"Yeah, It's Supposed To Sound Like That Vol.
Genres: indie rock/pop, electronica, punk
Mar 28 - Apr 3 2005
The second volume of this compilation series run by British label
Colchester Records offers yet another sample of eclectic music from
across the English-speaking globe. In addition to the usual rock
and pop fare, there's also some hip-hop (ReMo'Conscious),
electronica (Epoché), and punk (Billy Idle & Caustic
Goat). Aside from a a few
irritating disasters (Puffinboy's useless
"Short//Cut," Steve Rudd's laughably terrible
"New England's Fall"), this is a pretty solid collection of
tunes. Chances are you'll find some new bands to research; for
me it was ReMo'Conscious indie hop-hop, The Tommys'
surfy rock, and Hatstandy Andy's homemade, exciting techno. Contributions
from familiar acts The Party, Muleskinner Jones, and Frankie
Machine also impressed. Volume Two is another successful
chapter in the Colchester saga - if number three can sift out the
filler, it has the potential to be the best one yet.
