  17. Band members Chris Murphy and Bryce Boudreau met in July 2011 at the Denver Underground Music Festival, when Bryce joined as a guest of Chris’ previous gothic synth band Nightsweats. They formed Lunar Twin in October 2013, and derived the band’s name from a theory about earth having possibly had a twin moon. Inspired by space and time, as well as nature and culture, the band members record the music and vocal separately from quite a distance. Vocals for this EP were recorded in the Hawaiian rainforest at Chopo Audio in Keauu/Puna, Hawaii. All music was recorded in the high desert valley by an alkaline lake at Desert Heat Audio in Salt Lake City, USA.

  26. David Cameron’s Eton Mess is a compliation of embryonic Scottish guitar bands, very few with any more than an EP or two available online. Most of the bands are friends and a lot of musicians feature on several of the album’s tracks, one of the reasons why Song By Toad Records put the compliation together. Label owner Matthew Young explains “it feels like there’s this pool of really talented musicians bubbling away and all sorts of excellent music is starting to emerge from the mix. Bands are forming, breaking up and starting again all the time. When you see a loose collection of bands connecting like this you never know what is going to happen. A few will disappear, some will do okay, some might pave the way for others, and a few of these bands could go on to do really well.” Bandcamp
  27. Classic mid 80s Fall examines the Kennedy Assassination.
