Waaga Compilation

Lefse Records of Sacramento have recently unveiled Waaga Records, a home for musicians that – as they say – “did not fit the budget of Lefse but that we thought were really great.” To open shop, they’ve released a free downloadable compilation of representative tunes from their entire starting roster and a handful of others, including a new song from friend-of-the-label Abacus.

2. Golden Things – Treasure
3. Black Castles – FUR
4. Deal With It – Florene
5. Trails – White Mountains
6. Stones and Crowds – Emily Neveu
7. Cocaine Blues – Ennui
8. Yellowtree – Abacus
9. Let Wells – Sunnybrook
10. Untitled – Power Animal
11. The Cliffs – Melting Season
12. Tell Her – Boddicker
13. It Wont Be Long – Soft Cat
14. Shutterbugs – Motherly
15. Nightcycles – Seams

The entire thing can be downloaded at Waaga’s website, but here are a couple of what I’ll be calling “choice cuts” via Pitchfork, with a bit of entertaining poptronica from FUR and some tribal-tinged weirdness from Melting Season:

FUR – Black Castles
Melting Season – The Cliffs
