Witterings from an old indie kid
Technically it’s still Autumn so I think I can get away with this one! Fall 2017 is the latest compilation from Slovakian tape label Z Tapes. I am not going to kid you and aside from Soft Pastels I have not heard of any of the other 26 bands featured. However there is some interesting stuff here and this release serves as a great introduction to the label. Stand out tracks include efforts from the likes of Leor Miller, Candy and Memoryville and the compilation covers bedroom pop, DIY, indiepop and lo-fi pop mixtape.
Available on cassette from here or digitally on a pay what you want basis. Given that you can get the labels entire digital discography (76 releases!) from just a dollar splash the cash as all proceeds from digital sales go towards funding for a community centre in Bratislava.
