Sam of Ricky Eat Acid, and his dear friend (“wife”) Jasmine started a one of the cutest, most without guile labels earlier this month. They are called Unlimited Free Milkshakes, and their first release, cute boy kissing booth set the standard for the kind of heartfelt lo-fi gems they mean to release. And now with the turning of time, and Sam turning the big 2-1, Unlimited Free Milkshakes released a free compilation of music from friends, label affiliates, past lovers, present lovers, and sexy all-stars of all shapes and sizes. The tape ranges from “weirdo drone/ambient/experimental…to totally upbeat electronic stuff, downbeat stuff too (like blithe field’s appearance), dream pop (red alder), bummed out tape pop (just TRY and guess who wrassle mania is - that voice)”.
And with all it’s wild and beautiful branches, Art Week 2012 is rooted in friendship, and in the support of friends music. And when I really start to think about it, that’s a huge part of why I do what I do here at Smoke Don’t Smoke. If not for the friendships that form here through these pages, and through those sounds, I’m not sure it would be sustainable.
So get with the program and download [or click the image] the friendliest compilation this or that side of the Mississippi. And check out the lead track from Wrassle Mania (10 hugs if you can guess who it is).
