The music begins with the carefully crafted indie pop of A Beacon School (just written up in my last post). More indie cred continues with Ghost of Chance, Dwight Smith and The Guru. Yet the collection boasts impressive breadth, with songs funky (Body Cheetah), punky (Fins) and folksy (Closely Watched Trains). The solid rock in Birth of Flower along with a raucous trio of M.T. Bearing, Sidwalk Dave and Myty Konkeror, balances out the rap of Chef the Chef and Ghost Row. There's the electronica of Color Plus and the fuzzed out psychedelia of Slates, while the cryptic spoken lyrics of Steeve provides closure with a wistful synth soundscape. Lots to explore musically, plus the download comes with a PDF of artfully curated photos taken in Connecticut (see a few below).
