Fuck Dance, Let's Art
Some are saying that right now is possibly the best period creatively ever for American independent music. Compiled by the excellent mix site / blog Cool In The Pool, "Fuck Dance Let's Art" is a comp of a disparate range of US acts that blend indie & electronics. It shows the fertile ground that now high profile bands like Animal Collective & Crystal Castles sprang from. For anyone baffled by terms such as "chill-wave" or "blogtronica" - don't get angry: listen to this comp and see that behind the hype there is some amazing music.
