When we first caught glimpse of local artist Keith Kelly's flower paintings, they grabbed our attention and instantly reminded us of the indie vibe from the late 80’s / early 90’s C86 indie pop / twee pop days. Sarah Records, Teenbeat, and Postcard Records are a huge inspiration to Kanine. For this compilation, we wanted to emulate that aesthetic with the packaging design.
Kanine Records has always had a strong love of that early 90’s sound, and you can still hear that long lost era of indie in each of Tallies' songs that brings comparisons to The Sundays and The Smiths. And although Kanine Records might have a range of sound throughout its history 2003-present, one thing stands the same: our artists all started as independent musicians. When listening to this compilation you will hear the beginning days of Grizzly Bear’s dreamy lo-fi pop, the hazy shoegaze pop of The Deprecation Guild, the quickness of Garden Centre’s mind twisting art pop, the sunshine indie pop of Honey Cutt, the swirling guitars of Honey Lung’s love of The Smashing Pumpkins ‘Gish era’, along with a modern take on the RIOT Girl sound via Weeping Icon. Each of these twelve bands on the compilation has created their own sound in their own universe, but what combines them all together is their love of music with putting out records with a strong independent spirit.
This compilation does not have a download code as it is meant to be played on a turntable in your record store, at home, or in your office. This vinyl compilation is one time pressing of only 1,000 copies and all proceeds will remain at indie retail.
