A compilation of 17 bands from Burlington, Vermont, released by a Burlington ‘zine. While I haven’t seen the ‘zine, the graphics and production of the CD are top notch. I have faith.
Burlington has a reputation for supporting their own damn scene, thank you, with or without the approval of Boston. This compilation shows the diversity of the scene and the ‘zine. None of the bands fit neatly into categories like indie rock, punk, hardcore, noise, classic rock, or heavy metal. All these styles are represented, but not in the “usual” way. Very impressive.
The CD booklet meticulously credits bands, as well as providing contact information and other releases available. Highly recommended.
