Speedy Wunderground Announce Comp

Features tracks from Steve Mason, Archie Bronson Outfit, TOY, Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes), Scotti Brains, Kate Tempest, JUCE! and Childhood

Producer Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground label will be releasing a compilation, entitled Speedy Wunderground – Year 1, of their as-yet released tracks with some additional b-sides and mixes thrown in too. The album features one of tQ’s favourite tracks of last year in the form of ‘I Go Out’ by Steve Mason & Emiliana Torrini, as well as ‘Mr Dan’s No Brain Dub’ of Juce’s ‘Braindead’ (available to stream above). The label’s distinct aesthetic involves rehearsing a track to the point of being able to record it all in one day, with nary a break for lunch. The track is then mixed the following day. Carey believes these strict recording conditions give the music the immediacy of the "golden age of rock & roll", bringing a raw sound and allowing for a swifter release date.

The album will be released on May 26 on 12”, CD and download with a launch event being held on May 2 at The Social in London. Read our feature on the label here and see the complete track listing for the comp <a href="http://speedywunderground.com/shop/”out”>here.
