"All of them sparkling clean digital hand-jobs (of late) got me to thinking about the years I spent renting a room above a former farmer's garage, dubbing tapes when my better-minded friends were going to college and/or fucking with crystal meth. Time flies (except when you are constantly typing in 0s and 1s to get someone's laptop to cum) and certainly somewhere, a 16-year-old kid is online awaiting some hilarious critiques of the 20th anniversary Shrimper compilation Smooth Sounds: The Future Hits of Wckr Spgt double-CD: 36 exclusive songs specifically written for this project by Wckr Spgt and then given out blindly to the artists participating. With close to 200 releases under our belt and hundreds of artists that have recorded for the label, it was near impossible to choose bands for this project, so blindly into the depths of the third circle went we. "Smooth Sounds features key Shrimper acts (Soul-Junk, Sentridoh, Joy, The Mountain Goats, Simon Joyner, Jad Fair), recordings by artists from the surrounding environs that influenced the label (Norma Tanega, Kurt Ross, John Harrelson) and over a dozen new bands to keep intact the spirit of what a Shrimper compilation is supposed to be. The first pressing features covers lovingly hand-decorated by artists who have recorded for the Shrimper label, as well as extensive liner notes by Franklin Bruno. There are a number of festivals set to take place on July 24th, the official 20th anniversary of Shrimper, in Southern California, Virginia, England and New York, with all proceeds to benefit local art collectives. Keep your eyes peeled for more guerilla events that correspond with this release." --Dennis Callaci
