Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
A Killer Compilation
Kill Rock Stars, one of my favorite independent labels, has just made a sampler available that features contributions from most of their best-known artists, from Bikini Kill and Bratmobile through Elliott Smith and Sleater-Kinney all the way up to current bands like Xiu Xiu, Deerhoof and Thao. If you're like me, you probably have quite a few of these songs already. But you are unlikely to have all of them. And, even if you did, hearing the songs together is a powerful experience, one that definitely pumped air into the fading coals of my passion for popular music. Best of all, the collection is free, with no strings attached. Oh, and the label also announced today that they will be putting out Sleater-Kinney co-founder Corin Tucker's first solo album, so the gift to the public comes at a time when long-time devotees of the KRS way have a reason to celebrate. Needless to say, if you discover something you like and have yet to purchase, I heartily recommend that you contact the label directly and do so.

as a side note, they leave their mp3s and videos totally "undefended" by index files, making their directories as easy to wade through as your own hard drive (everyone should do this, really...)

If you're interested in vintage KRS, I invite you to trawl through my teenage-era record collection. (Mostly vinyl.)
