Día de Homenaje en la Oficina: Constant and True — A Tribute to the Songs of Rose Melberg (February Records, 2016)

“This extremely ambitious project was conceived of, and brought to fruition by, Jeremy Jensen — leader of the Boise, Idaho, pop group The Very Most — out of his appreciation of Rose’s prolific output.
Rose Melberg is indiepop royalty. As primary songwriter for one of the very first American indiepop bands, Tiger Trap, she played an indispensable part in furthering the indiepop movement in the U.S. She went on to release music both as a solo artist and as a member of the bands Go Sailor, The Softies, Gaze, Brave Irene, Tally Ho!, PUPS, Imaginary Pants and Knife Pleats, with sounds ranging from fragile, wistful folk to giddy, fizzy cuddlecore to sophisticated, almost jazzy, pop. Her music as been released on such labels as K Records, Double Agent, Kingfisher Bluez, Kill Rock Stars, Slumberland Records, Where It’s At Is Where You Are and Lost Sounds Tapes, just to name a few.
Bands and artists from the United States, Scotland, England, Spain, Norway, France, Australia and Dominican Republic have provided tracks for this compilation. Two bands (Boyracer and Transmittens) even came out of retirement just to contribute a track! Their interpretations of Rose’s music run the gamut from pop-punk to epic, symphonic walls of sound” (Press)

VV.AA.: Una Nueva Dimensión (Ondas del Espacio, 2015)

“Una Nueva Dimensión reúne a 12 bandas de diferentes lugares del país que tiene algo en común: temazos que te transportan a lugares que no habías visitado. La selección de los grupos y sus canciones está basada estrictamente en los gustos musicales de Ondas del Espacio y la posterior secuenciación de los temas fue elegida a conciencia para que la escucha fuera la más adecuada, por eso existe un fluido sonoro que es continuo en todo el disco. Quizás son voces del más allá las que nos han impulsado a elegirlos, no lo sabemos, pero lo que tenemos claro es que cada tema aporta una experiencia sonora única que igual te llena de energía, que te evade o lleva a vivir nuevas experiencias.
El elenco de bandas que aparecen son grupos reconocidos en su corto inicio y posiblemente estamos ante las bandas que están llamadas a colocarse en la cima de la escena independiente nacional menos convencional y más arriesgada. En UND cabe desde el pop psicodélico hasta el garage-rock alternativo o el shoegaze más noise de grupos como The Loud Residents, Hi Corea!, Baywaves, Alppine, La Maniobra de Q, Éter, Telephants, ExNovios, Morales, Sol y Sombra, Monte Terror y Homeless. Posiblemente estamos ante el disco recopila gran parte lo que ha dado de si la escena nacional emergente del último año”

Revolution, The Shoegaze Revival (Ear to Ear Records, 2015)

Revolution - The Shoegaze Revival cover art

Que el Shoegaze volvió a resurgir hace unos años es un hecho contrastado. Como también lo es que el género goza de una salud incluso mejor que a finales de los ochenta, cuando iluminados como Ride o My Bloody Valentine descubrieron una nueva manera de distorsionar las guitarras, de tocar el cielo del Dream y de mostrarnos una forma de hacer las cosas que desde luego, aún hoy permanece absolutamente vigente.
El sello Ear to Ear Records se hace eco de ello, y ha producido esta tremenda recopilación donde aparecen algunas de las mejores (aunque no siempre las más conocidas) bandas del panorama.

Cataclysmic times, it’s often said, produces great art. So does diversity. The modern day musical landscape is in a constant state of change with its many scenes recreating themselves into something interestingly new. This equally applies to the shoegaze genre. Beautiful Noise is still being made and it’s sounding from all four corners of the globe. 

2014 was a great year for shoegaze fans, with news surrounding the reformation of bands like Slowdive, Swervedriver, Ride and Medicine. 2015 is primed to be just as interesting and we are kicking it off by presenting the new breed, who are writing the next chapter in shoegaze. In the wake of the reformation of these ‘first wave’ shoegaze bands, we have amalgamated underground artists from all over the world, who are virtually united under one revolutionary flag – that of a shoegaze revival.

“Revolution – The Shoegaze Revival” is an epic, truly international 30-track compilation comprised of outstanding original material. Such bands have set the stage for shoegaze pioneers’ return to today’s scene by upholding their wall of sound and painting it with breathtaking colour. Some of these bands are also ‘first wave’ but have remained underground, while some are newbies – the ‘second wave’ of shoegaze.
Curated by UK label Ear to Ear Records and Indonesian label Gerpfast Kolektif, this compilation features 30 bands from 16 countries, covering 5 of the 6 inhabited continents. Each was selected purely on the basis of their dynamic sound, without any consideration of geographic preference, label affiliation, popularity ranking or hype. Without even one throwaway or filler track, these are all ‘keepers’.
This is not a shoegaze tribute album to MBV or Slowdive, or even The Beatles. There is simply so much greatness to the new wave of shoegaze that we’re focusing on original tracks, which showcase the immense talent of the featured bands. For some, this album may be the best shoegaze soundtrack they’ll encounter in 2015. At minimum, this will serve as a fantastic introduction to these new sounds and happily tide existing shoegaze fans over for quite some time.

Creation Records co-founder Joe Foster (also noted for producing My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream, and Jesus & Mary Chain) is also throwing hissupport behing this initiative, stating “This is a new comp with the best of the world shoegaze/magical psychpoppy’s REBIRTH…. Ear To Ear Records are a new Welsh/Canadian label in the spirit of Creation and 4AD and just as obsessed as that! Why do I refer to rebirth instead of revival? In contrast, a *rebirth* in the same period gave us such bands as The Cramps, Primal Scream and Cocteau Twins – what a range!! And such a huge and wide world of music…this is exactly what is happening again in a new and unexpected way! 30 bands from 16 countries worldwide…an unprecedented spread of hope and art“. 
Members of Swervedriver, Slowdive, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Swallow [4AD Records], Strata Florida [Saint Marie Records] and The Telescopes [Creation Records] have also expressed their support, as well as renowned British producer Fran Ashcroft (Damon Albarn, Lords of Acid). We are hopeful that this compilation will help move this genre beyond being “The Scene That Celebrates Itself” to one that is also celebrated by others…
