Some compilations..


There is an up and coming tendency of Greek independent record labels, to release compilations featuring songs from bands that form their roster, and give them away for free. Splendid idea, for obvious reasons. Here I will write about two different record labels that I've spotted, that have released excellent compilations. Dig in.

Spinalonga Records, is is an non-profit collective based in Greece, established in 2005. And that's exactly what they do. Under the label, they have collected a number of beautiful and diverse bands, that make great music. Over the years the have released many compilations, usually celebrating each release with a live gig (with free entry most -if not all- of the times). Here you can find all the compilations for free download.

A Sampler Darkly (2013)
This is the latest compilation released by Spinalonga Records, and it contains a number of fucking unbelievable tracks. Some of the bands that you'll hear here, will be uploaded at the blog in the future. I seriously advise you to listen to this compilation.

Tracklist:
1.A Possible End -This Is Nowhere
2.Jesus Wants Her To Kill -Psychedelic Trips To Death
3.A Big Win For Boredom -One Leg Mary
4.When All Disposed -Their Methlab
5.Money Is Bliss -Rita Mosss
6.Drive -Cube
7.Motherfuckin' Blues -De Sades
8.Star54 -45Rats
9.Sex And Depression -Tuber
10.Rings Of Saturn -Lunarmare
11.Eastern Patterns -Circassian
12.AAS -XΕΣΟΥΣ
13.Zaira -Meanwhile In Mexico
14.Move Your Sexy Butt -Wham Jah
15.Wreck -Adolf Plays The Jazz
16.Why -Savage Land

Fuzz Overdose Records, is also a record store residing at Exarcheia in Athens. A very interesting record label, it consists of mostly garage/psychedelic rock bands. At the blog, I've uploaded The Mongrelettes, who are part of the Fuzz Overdose Records roster, and who you can find here, as well as The Social End Products. So far, they've released only one compilation, that -as it's already said- you can download for free.
