Another Great Indie Sampler

A good way to learn about new indie music is to get a nice little sampler. Usually they are pretty cheap and are chocked full of awesome music. The best example I can think of is Saddle Creek 50. I finally got a new one in the mail today....

"The Amos House Collection Volume III" is full of great unreleased songs from bands like Emily Sparks, Spoon, Richard Davies, Her Space Holiday, Wheat, Elf Power, Super Furry Animals, The Good Life, Wilco, Azure Ray, and a tons of other artists. A few of these bands I haven't heard of. The one that really stands out that I haven't heard is James William Hindle....very Songs: Ohia meets Neutral Milk Hotel.

These songs aren't throwaways either. They are very good, even if it is a demo. Everybody should check it out. Besides, it's for charity! You can read more about the Amos House here.

All-in-all this is a great day for new music because not only did this CD come in, but my Beulah orders came in too. I'll post something on them after I hear them.
