INDOORSHOES Adopted Friends Vol. 3

by  |  January 7, 2013  |  1 Comment

So I don’t know if you heard (or care) but my digital music library has been in a bad way for about a month now, and I have been spending a lot of free time cleaning it up and making all pretty like again.  In the meantime, I’ve been relegated to other sources of musical entertainment while the dirty meta tags get sorted from the clean.  I’ve been spending a lot of time on Bandcamp and Rdio, mostly exploring things I seem to have missed or that fall outside of the purview of QBiM, but I’d like to draw your attention once again to a local (for me) label that’s celebrating another successful year: IndoorShoes.

Just after Christmas, IndoorShoes revealed the latest installment (their third) in the Adopted Friends series of compilations they’ve been putting out, featuring 20 friends and label roster members (hence the name).  Whether you’re familiar with any of the Golden Horseshoe artists featured or not, you’d have to agree this is a solid gold collection of great music.  The Rest contribute a track from one of my favourite records of 2012, alongside fellow Hamiltonians The Dirty Nil, who release a split 7″ single with Wellanders Northern Primitive (also on Adopted Friends Volume 3) on IndoorShoes today.

IndoorShoes’ Adopted Friends Volume 3 is available now as a name-your-price download from Bandcamp.  The Dirty Nil/Northern Primitive 7″ single will be available from the two bands wherever they play live this month.

Hey, it’s January and it’s snowing out; better remember to put on your IndoorShoes when you come inside!
