Welcome to the 27th Aldora Britain Records compilation, 'The Strangest Place On Earth: 16 Revolutionary Whirls.' The title comes from two tracks by two of the artists features on the compilation, coincidentally neither of the tracks actually feature on the compilation. Confusing, right? Postman, a Berlin-based Ukrainian neo-folk songsmith, provides the first half of the title and Tin Pan Parade, an experimental post rock project provide the second half.
Tin Pan Parade is the artists that this collection revolves around. More specifically, the main man behind the project, Bradly Vaughn, who appears on three separate songs. As well as Tin Pan Parade, he contributes a solo track and a track from another project, Braidel. His style is experimental with flashes of post rock and punk, think The Velvet Underground. Experimentation is the key to this collection, in a variety of different directions.
The Prof.Fuzz 63 continue the Velvet Underground theme with their distorted and fuzzy post punk. Nick Shoulders, an AB favourite, returns with 'Honey (Let's Stay In),' another fine example of his traditional and yodelling take on country and bluegrass. Citrus Blossom, another Greek band that we've added to our collaborators, purvey a style of blues and hard rock that is reminiscent of Led Zeppelin.
BOA provide some reggae fusion, Francis' provide some lo-fi indie folk, and The Sun Harmonica provide some joyous folk rock. There's also a track taken from Molly Shuvani's latest LP. Molly's LP covers folk, jazz, pop, soul and hip hop. Experimental.
Fieves and Guiding Lights add a little hard garage rock to the mix, heavy stuff. Sven Sauber and Silent Neighbor deliver two polar opposites of the folk rock spectrum. The collection is completed by Straight Arrows, a no-nonsense punk rock group that will have you thinking of Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers.
Experiment, experiment, experiment. Stay at home, download, stream, listen. Play it loud it's the best and safest thing to do.
