Indietracks 2009 - An Indiepop Compilation (Make Do and Mend)

Designed as a keepsake that will remind you of indiepop thrills, fumbled legover moments in collapsed tents, and the raging shits you contracted from drinking too much real ale on top of three hot dogs in a row, this expansive revue can also be bought up front and give you that tight feeling in your stomach that makes you wish Indietracks was this weekend coming.

That sentence was way too long.

Anyway, I'm not going to go through each track on this mammoth 44 (forty-four) track double cd. I'm not a flippin' robot. Suffice to say that I'm looking forward to the following acts a lot: Friends; Downdime; Pocketbooks; the boy Green and his Juggernauts; Cooper; Northern Portrait; The School; Eux Autres; Kevin McGrother; The Marshmallow Kisses and Help Stamp Out Loneliness. Especially Help Stamp Out Loneliness, who I'd manage to not hear before listening to their swoonsome 'Parma Violet' on here, which sounds a little bit like the best bits of the much-missed Saloon. They're a must-see.

You want one more ace thing about this album? It's only bloody £6, isn't it? You really should order right away from Make Do And Mend.
