Put together by an Orlando ex-pat whose local ties run deep, this comp is peppered with the cream of our homegrown crop and others previously linked to this scene. Though the small but smart indie label operates out of Portland, Ore., the nexus of this compilation is clearly Orlando. In addition to various shades of indie rock, it encompasses wintry electronic hybridism (Alan Singley and Pants Machine), acoustic nerd-pop (The Boy Bathing) and even tough street punk (The Attack). Long Distance Vans contribute a fetching bit of shy jangle-pop propelled by a prim, symphonic spine played by some of Yanni's string players. Other highlights include New Roman Times' tower of grave romanticism, the New Lows' hooky garage pop and Summerbirds in the Cellar's diaphanous daydream.
