VARIOUS ARTISTS: Kat Music for Kat People Vol. 3: Picks of the Litter: CD

This is excellent. Compilation discs are nostalgia for me at this point. A mixtape full of wonder that could have a band with one good song or a band whose album you’ll never get your hands on; the possibilities are endless. The world feels infinite and unknowable. There are some banger groups on this comp. Special shout out to an alt take for Sloan Peterson’s “Tallahassee.” Grab this if you need thirty-five songs you have probably never heard before. Other highlights: Mikey Erg, Notches, Devon Kay And The Solutions, Rations, The Dopamines… *deep breath* What a bargain. –Gwen Static (Bloated Kat, bloatedkatrecords.bandcamp.com)
