Australian Popfest Compilation
One of our favorite little labels, Emotional Response Records of Flagstaff, Arizona, continues to delight us with unexpected treasures. Most recently they released an Australian Popfest Compilations. Punk, indie pop and electropop coexist on 16 tracks you won't find together elsewhere. The backstory is that label bosses Jen and Stew lived in Australia for a while, and in 2002 organized a pop festival at Melbourne's Empress Hotel. This artifact of selected portions of the proceedings in now available at the Bandcamp link below. A few tracks are here for your listening pleasure -- one punk, one indie pop, and one electro pop. We like balance.
