Box Bedroom Rebels is one of the best labels to crank up in recent years unleashing a series of marvellously packaged 7"s in limited runs which before you know it you'll find yourself collecting.
The thing is - the music is generally brilliant on these records and they choose new and unheard names that ensures that the label becomes one you can trust. There are 31 tracks on this double LP compilation of all their early singles and pretty much everything here is excellent from Real Estate-ish Mancunians Horsebeach to the Mini-Dresses spangling shoegaze to The Arctic Flow who sound rather marvellously like Wild Nothing to post rockers Sur and folksters The Scottish Enlightenment. Meanwhile the Faded Tapes probably provide my favourite moment here with the gorgeous instrumental 'New Song'.
The name of the game is generally hazy jangly indie, Sarah Records, shoegaze and folk and this is a brilliantly curated compilation that is worth picking up whether or not you bought those out of print 7"s.
