This album is a collection of bedroom pop/lofi/experimental/ambient side-projects from quite a lot of people I have come to know and appreciate. I found myself regularly, checking Soundclouds and Bandcamps of completely obscure and completely awesome musicians who i have come to know of or have become friends with over time, happy to see so many young people building a port folio of demos and attempts at song writing. I wanted to compile a compilation to celebrate the independence in writing solo music, taking the disadvantage of not being able to make a band of stuff and turning it into a dedicated solo venture. The loner-hood of the solo musician is one to be respected, there is strength in it. in one way or another, the songs in this compilation represent the youthful venture of bright eyed lofi diy musicians trying to create pieces of art that have worth and have feeling, whilst at the same time using music as a conduit with which to talk about the lives in which they live – similar and relatable in a lot of ways, but at the same time individually distinctive and a fair representation of the individualistic experience – it’s earnest, it’s true and it’s awesome. Featuring tracks from trust fund, mat riviere, gloomy planets, milk problems, ry viera, pet cemetery, e.l.m.h, video ghost, ernest street house, field commander, videosforpictures, benjamin pool house, thanks honey, attic room.
