So I spent last week in a nearly internet free place for the first time in a very long time. The first few days were a struggle. Even though I knew it had no signal, I still picked up my phone and checked it. After a few days, I forgot about it and enjoyed the solitude that only north western Maine can provide.
On day 4 a rather nasty storm rolled through and brought down some branches onto the roof of our cabin. Feeling especially mannish (Maine will do that, and it’s like miracle grow for the beard!), I climbed up onto the roof and started tossing branches off and tamping down shingles. That’s when it happened. My phone, still in my pocket, starts ringing and dinging and chewbacca rawring at me like crazy. I had found the one pocket of cell service and didn’t dare move. A few minutes later when the racket stopped, I checked my alerts and found this in my twitter feed:
!!!! Finally it’s here! Nerd up the 90’s! A comp full of some of the best artists in geek culture today! oh…and it just happens to include us. My man Z over at HipsterPlease.com had asked us a few months back if we’d want to be involved in this awesome project and we couldn’t be more excited about it.
Now that I’m back in the land of traffic and technology, and have actually had a chance to listen to this comp, all I can say is WOW! I expected great things when Z hinted at the lineup a few weeks ago, but these guys have really crushed it. Go. Download it now. It’s free and no matter what you’re into musically, you’re bound to find something to love.
