Frequencies From Friends

This is a new compilation Inertia has put together as a fund raiser for Sydney’s FBi radio. I really don’t want to be an FBi whore but this is a pretty damn good compilation for $12. It’s a mix of local and international artists who have donated all kinds of stuff, live tracks, older songs, new material and unreleased songs. There’s something for everyone here, i really enjoy the indie and dancy tracks while someone else could get behind the more hip-hop flavoured stuff.

My highlights include Bibio’s happy Ambivalence Avenue, the Midnight Juggernauts acoustic take on Road To Recovery and newcomer Deastro’s poppy Vermillion Plaza.

My one gripe is the ‘booking fee’, it’s sold as a $10 compilation but there is a booking fee added to that. It’s probably something to do with the station needing to use a concert ticket widget to make the sales but a $2.30 fee is pretty steep on something that’s meant to cost $10. But even with that,  if you’re looking to get your hands on some good tracks and give money to a station that deserves it then this is the way to go.
