To celebrate this year’s Indietracks Festival (26 and 27 July), Make Do And Mend Records are releasing a double CD featuring some of the most exciting indiepop bands around.
The CD features 45 fantastic tracks from bands playing at this unique festival, ranging from dancefloor fillers and punk-pop explosions to dreamy acoustic folk and gorgeous summer harmonies.
The compilation showcases a number of bands who are already creating a buzz on national radio and across this year’s summer festivals, including The Kabeedies, The Voluntary Butler Scheme, KateGoes, Esiotrot and Slow Down Tallahassee.
They’re joined on the compilation by some of indiepop’s most celebrated names. The double CD includes never-released-before songs from ex-Hefner legend Darren Hayman and and acclaimed ukulele popsters The Bobby McGees, as well classic tracks from John Peel favourites Ballboy and Milky Wimpshake.
The Indietracks 2008 compilation also introduces a wave of new and exciting bands from around the world, from A Classic Education’s dreamy Italian folk pop to Punk TV – Russia’s answer to the Chemical Brothers!
