|This is one of three choices|
This month, a third collection of songs in a particular genre was released by the music magazine "Nothing But Hope and Passion" (NBHAP). This collection is a post-rock compilation.
The website for the magazine is http://nbhap.com/. It is a site well worth a periodic visit. They cover more than music, but the expertise is particularly apparent when the subject matter is music.
In August of 2012, NBHAP released " the twelve-song "Nothing But ...Synthgaze." In the following month, “Nothing But…Indie-Pop” became available in the form of a thirteen-song compilation. This month’s ‘Nothing But…Post-Rock” has fifteen songs. Each compilation is offered on a “name your own price” basis and is accompanied by the following text:
"Click "Buy Now" and enter "0" to get a free download. If you decide to pay for the sampler: we guarantee to not waste any Cent, each Cent will be used for the promotion of this sampler."
You will need to enter an email address, but if you don't have a music-dedicated email account by now, it's time to register one.
The three offerings are on Bandcamp. The Indie-Pop compilation can be sampled below or by visiting the Bandcamp site at CLICK HERE. We favor the songs by War Drugs, In Golden Tears, and Garda (tracks 6, 11 and 13).
The Post-Rock compilation can be sampled below or by visiting the Bandcamp site at CLICK HERE. We are partial to track 5 by Maserati.
The Synthgaze compilation can be sampled below or by visiting the Bandcamp site at CLICK HERE. We like the explanation of the genre:
"We'd like start with twelve tracks from the wide territory we might call SYNTHGAZE. Others tend to name it Chillwave, and some even glo-fi. We might not know the exact dividing line but we know the way it sounds and feels - a lot of synthesizers, even more reverb, soundwalls, old analog effects, loops and alienated - often pitched - vocal and sound samples."
