The compilation is called Stay Inside: Songs from the Great Indoors.
Legendary local indie Osborne Again has teamed up with beloved labels Dinosaur City Records, Spunk, Blossom Rot, Hotel Motel and Inertia to create Stay Inside: Songs from the Great Indoors, a new compilation shining a light on the power of creativity during these uncertain times.
The release features tracks from the likes of Cool Sounds, Dianas, Emma Russack, Navy Gangs, Emma Shields, S.M. Jenkins and more, with all the tracks either being written, recorded or ‘finally finished’ during the recent weeks of self-isolation. The power of the release transcends the songwriting of some of music’s most exciting talents with the overarching message of staying indoors standing tall.
Every track on the comp has been mixed and mastered by Snowy, the Melbourne muso who just dropped his own record, Audio Commentary, to widespread acclaim, also achieving Beat’s Best New Album status. The release is decidedly raw and honest and pedals genres from across the board – think bedroom and synth-pop, folk, even post-punk.
100% of the record’s proceeds will be evenly distributed between each of the artists who have contributed.
Stay Inside: Songs from the Great Indoors will be updated each day for the rest of April via Bandcamp.
