Hey, everyone. We're talking labels today.
In 2012, I reviewed the Fatherland EP by Mr. Dream and Weird Wild World by Sleepies, both of which were released by the Godmode label. Specializing in post-punk and some of the more avant variations of R&B and EDM I've heard, Godmode, which is owned and run by former Pitchfork editor and current Mr. Dream drummer Nick Sylvester and Capitol Records A&R rep Talya Elitzer, recently released a new cassette compilation called, Common Interests Were Not Enough To Keep Us Together.
Featuring new music from the label (plus a couple new tracks from Mr. Dream and Sleepies which were a plus for me), the comp provides a varied selection of sounds that range from club (Shamir) to vocal (Soft Lit) to experimental (Yvette), which ultimately affirms Godmode's place as a home for both very inviting to likely alienating performers.
You can check out the comp here:
