Remember the days of the old-school compilation album? The "you-gotta-hear-this" mixtape from that friend of a friend? Dw. Dunphy & The Co-Op Community know that nostalgia is the future, then is now, and discovery is the joy of the passionate. Got independent music? The Co-Op Communique Vol. 4 wants it to be heard.
The Communique series features independent music ranging from the DIY to the slick, the jangly to the jagged, the pop to the rock to the wherever-the-muse-may-strum. Now in its fourth volume, this compilation series is at once humble and audacious in its ambition: neither charging artists for inclusion nor generating income, each compilation is jam-packed yet carefully arranged to entice the fan of independent music to acquaint herself with her new favourite artist or dozen.
Past volumes in the series have featured melodic indie rock
Sunshimmery power pop
And lush psychedelic garage noise
Artist submission are open for The Co-Op Communique Vol. 4, and this time both auditory and visual submissions are encouraged. If you've got independent music or graphic art and want to join The Co-Op, email firstname.lastname@example.org to get that conversation started.
