VARIOUS ARTISTS: We Just Call It Roulette, Vol 1: CD

Russian Recording is a sound studio in Indiana making records for independent bands for the past four years. This disc is a one-time pressing of 500 copies. Most the bands are obscure Midwest bands. I appreciate the underground factor of this disc. The musical styles vary from folksy to indie rock to hardcore. From Billy Bragg ideas to Slint’s and Jesus Lizard’s musical twists. The hardcore tracks include WastelandDC and Racebannon. There are a plenty of good acts on here including: Lucky Pineapple, Beltane Fire, Turn Pale, and Abner Trio, among others. Diversity is punk rock. Russian does decent recordings as well. Check ‘em out if you are in Indiana.
