Various Artists – Shelter 2 (Sunday Records)

Sunday Records have released a second volume of songs as “a (another!) special treat for our fans during the coronavirus isolation”.

Once again the compilation features tracks collated from acts on the labels roster. The Proctors open with Only Stupid, a track that started life in the early 1990’s before Japanese Heart Software give us For Another Day which originally appeared on last years Lonely Hearts EP. That release did not grab me then but after hearing this again I may need a revisit. Compilations eh?

Kosmonaut deliver an acoustic version of Silver Star before LIPS treat us once more to Dreams I Outgrew which appeared on their debut Never Makes Sense EP. I forgot how good this track was so thanks for the reminder. The Arctic Flow contribute a remastered version of Goodbye Oceana, complete with a new video, whilst this chapter closes with Nah… who head back a couple of years returning with Linus from their debut EP.

As with the first volume all the songs here are gentle, lo-fi indiepop songs collated to help the listener relax during these trying times. It’s also another reminder what a strong line up Sunday Records has. Shelter 2 is available on a pay what you want basis from here.
