Various Artists - Wick Records Presents Battle of the Bands Vol. 1 [LP] (Black Swirl Vinyl, limited to 800, indie advance exclusive)
Exclusive to RSD 2020, Wick Records is pleased to bring you a collection of wigged-out winners sure to rock you deep into the inter-dimensional fray... Dig on track after track of superior sounds: The fuzz-fueled freak-outs of The Mystery Lights, and Mark Sultan; the swirling, mind-altering melodies of Michael Rault; the troglodytic tune-smithery of The Ar-Kaics; the anglophilic grooves of Benny Trokan, and The Fame-Beats; the Link Wray inspired madness of the Buzz Brothers; the soul-tinged savagery of The Jay Vons; as well a track from psychedelic newcomers, Steady Sun, and a reissued jem from Ohio Teen-Beat legends, Johnny's Uncalled Four. Featuring two unreleased tracks, and several making their long-player debut. This is one helluva compilation, folks. Don't sleep on it - Wick is watching!
