Celebrating The Smiths' The Smiths: TEASE TORMENT TANTALIZE
Release Date: March 24th, 2015
From The Liner Notes: "No band personified the spirit of indie more than the Smiths, that Manchester four-piece who strode between the jagged shards of punk politics and the ideological posturing of the new wave arts school, to produce a sound that was both fay and ethereal, rhythmically compelling but memorably melodic."
Recorded in 2014, the 30th anniversary of The Smiths’ eponymous debut, this new compilation features a select few of the best artists in electronic and indie rock. The Smiths’ independence, in style and attitude, persists in this unique reimagining by Kevin Devine, Blackbird Blackbird, Faded Paper Figures, Field Mouse, Jaymay, Brothertiger, Seapony, Male Bonding, The Night VI, Soft Metals,Young Statues, Heidemann, Our Broken Garden, and Mother Falcon (an eighteen piece orchestral rock band).
Available worldwide on March 24th, 2015. Digital distribution by The Orchard.
