VARIOUS ARTISTS: Loves in Heat Records: CD

This is a sampler from indie label Loves In Heat Records. Lots of art rock. And some hardcore-type stuff too. The stand out track for me was “The Resisted” by a band called Birds Fled From Me, which is a haunting and lovely piano-driven ballad sung by a lady with a killer voice. It is pretty much the opposite of everything else in this collection, which probably means that the sampler was not exactly directed at people with my non-art-rock musical taste.
