Earlier today, the cassette sector of Gypsy Farm released a statement claiming their machines are “fired up” and running momentarily to produce a “super short-run” follow up to 2018’s now out-of print compilation album, Rock and Raw.
The first volume was an even shorter-run tape release, only circulated privately among the bands involved and friends.
Rock and Raw: Vol. 2 is packed with past and current artists of the label roster and comes loaded with the newest single out from the Humms unreleased album, Vampire Hours.
Opening with Bat & The Bears – “Kromp”, an urgent breakbeat style of composition brushed with samples of old gospel choir recordings.
That segues delightfully into the raunchy sludge of distortion that is The Honey Sliders tune “Fucking And Fighting”. This mixtape is sure to liven up the cooler-conversation if played in the workplace.
Kromp – Bat & The Bears
Fucking and Fighting – The Honey Sliders
Perfect Day – Pine Tar Rage
W.I.P. – Richie
Natural – The Haunted Head
Wagon Yard – Shoal Creek Stranglers
The Leaking Man – Old Smokey
I Hung Myself – Uncle Goo
Merry Days – The Humms
Recall – The Ice Creams
