VARIOUS ARTISTS: Gritty but Pretty, Vol. 1: 7”

May 15, 2023

Got this comp with a nice note about Love Your Rebellion, which is the group that curated this collection. They sound so awesome! LYR is a nonprofit that “empowers marginalized groups through the arts,” which I think is sweet. This compilation is pretty charming, with a range of punk represented—five bands from England, New York, Indiana, and France playing a bunch of different styles, but all in-your-face in the coolest way. I especially enjoyed Lavender Witch’s “Not My Sister” and Mary Bell’s “Consent,” but would recommend the whole comp. I love a good comp and looking forward to more from this collaboration! –Theresa W. (Roach & Roll)
