VARIOUS ARTISTS: World of Birds Records – Affordable Luxury: CS

This is a compilation sampler cassette. There are four bands on it. They have two songs a piece. Each of these songs has a reverby, bright, jangly guitar thing going on. The vocals whisper by like vapors. Yaaaawn. I think I like the last song best, but I can’t tell if that’s because it’s the indicator that the record is over. It’s called “Wait in the Car.” Though if I was, I might shut it off. From their website, the label says: “World of Birds Records is a boutique art production agency with our eyes and ears on what’s next.” Sometimes the bougie, pretentious, indie rockers’ pants are so tight that they constrict blood flow to the brain. Affordable Luxury? Is that like “acceptable gentrification?” Stay the fuck out of my neighborhood. There should be plenty of copies to distribute at your cocaine art parties. Stick to that.
