Vetrarnótt This compilation is huge and it tells you one among many things: that there is many many people making music and that you can't get hold of everything that's being released by small labels. This compilation ranges from synth pop, experimental, space electronics to indie rock/pop and some punk influenced music. It has a nice selection of artists and shows the different directions that the label takes into its releases. Favorite track: Mr. Chan (Cave Demo).

about

"It’s a goldmine of discovery, from shimmery synth pop to electro punk to space out noise rock to acoustic ritual folk... This stuff really does run a remarkable gamut from wonderfully listenable to intense, without skipping a beat or sacrificing quality." - Guide Me Little Tape

Track Name: Sharks' Teeth - Karma Decay
You let yourself in
you’re nothing like them
it’s so obvious
but I need to hear it
when I’m anxious
you let the pitch bend
on your theremin
repeating the chorus
you were bored with

your main influence
is down to the stems
letting worries extend
repeating the chorus
you were bored with
eleven a.m.
you try to convince
and guarantee calmness
it’s pointless
Track Name: Bernays Propaganda - Сакав да се заљубам (I Wanted to Fall in Love) (Demo)
Skopje, 2015
Brussels, rule the country
Babylon is, Macedonia

Why am I guilty?
I wanted to fall in love.
I always choose you first
but I am last on the end.

News, telescreen of the fog
People, no longer exist
The mud, is the new citizen.

Why am I guilty?
I wanted to fall in love.
I always choose you first
but I ‘m last at the end.

Skopje, 2015
Nothing here makes me happy
I can’t recognize you anymore.
Track Name: Sunset Rollercoaster - New Drug (Demo)
Follow me, take this
Freeze the time and we will fly

Come to me and dream
Be in the daze and feel alright

Twisted, dancing
A little bit dizzy, I don’t mind

Hey girl, you boy
This drug is love, it’s gotta be trippy

You are my new world, I’m your new drug
You need my body, I could be your mind
Track Name: The Jackal's Son - Home (Demo)
Raven's picked me up, saying I don't belong
The City now beneath my feet,
They've sworn not to let me go

Cause' I am going home

Creatures, beggars laughed at me
and I swore that I'd never have to stay (you might want to check this part)

Cause' I am going home

Crooked folks lash their tongues
and curse the stars up above
My winged friends swing higher still
So damn you all and how you feel

Damn you all and how you feel
Track Name: Sun Hotel - Oikos
you were the coast
at the end of the road
where the water meets the highway
in a beach side town
in the greek word for house
if it gets any hotter then i'll stay
but this could be the change in motion
that sets that feeling right
and it don't gotta be a big production
just come step inside
i know you can

you in those clothes
that i wanna unfold
and make a mess of you until you see it our way
while we rest beneath palm trees
and give thanks for the heat
well i just never seen it any other way
but this could all be easy money
counting with both our hands
and of course i wanna shape you to me
but God keeps laughing at my plans
so i laugh back at him

everyone
is watching us
i was in love
with jerusalem
but existentialisms just more fun
Track Name: Bryant Eugene Vazquez - Norma
If you’re true
Well, I can’t tell
You could lie
I love you still
I do believe
Dance with me in an orchard, please
Pick me up
And swing me around the orange trees

Wear the shirt
I bought for you
You left behind in a pile of clothes
To start a new
You broke your word
It’s hurt me so
If you can’t love me
Let me know before we’re old
Track Name: Everybody Row - The Sea Inside
I'm from a line that was born for freedom.
But now the fresh air only stings.
You thieves never feel a touch of conscience.
Never wonder why the caged bird sings.

Just like how you hunt for fun.
And pass the dead on the side of the road.
You never think twice.
Reckless incarceration
in the name of petty traditions.
You never think twice.

Breed more weakness; More dependence.
Keep up appearances; "We're so blessed."
But are we really best friends?
When you cage the pets and eat the rest?

Incarceration isn't preservation.

Just like how you hunt for fun.
And pass the dead on the side of the road.
You never think twice.
Your precious civil rights
never reach past tunnel vision.
You never think twice.
