For my money Louisville's Sophomore Lounge surprise and delight more consistently with their weirdo indie rock discoveries than any comparable DIY label active today. If you don't believe me, try to think of a better one. Theirs is a diverse roster, ranging from minimal psych experiments (PC Worship, Jovontaes) to uplifting indie pop (Giving Up, Fat History Month) to the best noise-punk the USA has to offer (Tropical Trash, Guerilla Toss). They once sent us a 20+ song sampler CD that got more spins in our office than most official releases. To appropriate a cliche, you never know what you're going to get, except quality. I think they should offer a subscription service.   This latest LP from Warmer Milk Ma Turner, also formerly of CROSS and Salad Influence is one of their weirder offerings. This LP contains selected highlights "remixed, reconfigured and collaged" from the mammoth 'Zoz Collection', a home-made audio diary themed around prayer and meditation which spanned 12 cassettes and a total of roughly six hours! Even for the sonically adventurous among us that's a major time investment, so this taster LP condenses the best bits for the short of attention span like me.   It's broken lo-fi experimentalism along the lines of Russell Hoke or The Supreme Dicks, a mixture of dreamy post-folk meditations and hypnotic rickety instrumentals full of broken loops, indistinct vocalisations, twangy guitar concrete and crumbly analogue distorto-drones. It's a bit noisy and incoherent in places, but that's part of the charm I think.
