essential rough-cut compilation of early work by my favorite of the Jewelled Antler "bands". call it acid folk, freak folk, or whatever, but there are specific sounds and textures here that pop up all over the place in current indie folk. it's comforting to know where they came from and to acknowledge with all due respect the lasting influence of Glenn Donaldson, Loren Chasse, and Donovan Quinn on indie folk music.

Franc Kurti and Dina Hajrullahu deliver another sharply crafted and engaging darkwave/coldwave excursion. perfect for end-of-the-world dancing at 3:00 am.

Hellens is the top result when you google "Tangerang Shoegaze".

great lyrics and a great voice. "Night Shift" is an instant classic and the rest of the album is very strong as well.

Mahalo for all the eclectic exposures... Plus, you've got a great voice in your writing. I just wish I didn't have to track interesting reviewers all over the place in here! What became of the compilation that would present when we 1st opened our site?
