Indiecater Volume One Set Loose

This morning as the dawn bells rang out and the sacks that had replaced my eyeballs weeped a tiny tear the indiecater compilation finally made its entrance. Finally I say when in reality the gap between conception and birth was barely 2 weeks. No matter, I got a fair amount of pleasure in seeing this project come to fruition I can tell you. This collection gathers 10 unheralded yet really talented artists onto one release with the income from its sale going directly back to the 10 contributors. There is quite a bit of variation too, electronica, indie pop and experimental numbers are liberally sprinkled throughout. To give you a taster here’s a classic-in-waiting from New York’s Cymbals Eat Guitars. Even before I heard a single note I knew there was something special going on. Enthusiasm is half the battle in my book and these lads have it in spades. The fact that they can knock off slow burning epics like ‘Share’ sweetens the deal. ‘Share’ is a classic grower, only after several listens do the hidden layers and high creativity become evident. By the finish the swells of melodic sound prove a stark contrast to the ragged advance and retreat of its early movements. If your fancy is taken you can buy more of its ilk here. KD
