The incredible Colorado-based music collective Act So Big Forest
has finally issued the much-anticipated second installment of their compilation series. The 2011 Spring Edition named Auriel
features 24 mostly brand new tracks by the community's wide-spreading roster, among them gems by NFOP darlings such as Moon Tides
, Thrifty Astronaut
, Ambassador Engine
, Kevin Costner Suicide Pact
, and of course ASBF poster children Candy Claws
. As expected, the result is not only pretty eclectic but most of all pretty amazing and just another demonstration that Colorado does have one of the most thriving and forward thinking purely independent music scenes nowadays (yes, we've said that before).
Check out four of our favorite tracks below and then head over here
to cop the whole beauty entirely for free.
Aloeswood - Began to Become
Ambassador Engine - Alternatives (the Rope, the Knife, the Revolver)
Cotton Keys - Frankenstein Grandfather
The Kevin Costner Suicide Pact - Holdrakèta
