Various - Sled Island 2014 Compilation (2014)
Yesterday was the happiest of happy days, with the return of Sled Island. Last night's kick-off party at the Commonwealth was made all the sweeter with this - a special, blue cassette compilation of some of the bands playing the festival.
The bands on here are, as you'd expect, from all over the place and not just Calgary. Three locals are included, though - the noisy Bitter Fictions, the poppy Modern Aquatics and the dancey Shaani Cage. This tape is a nice little teaser of what's ahead over the next five days.
Speaking of which, you won't really hear from us for the next week or so because of Sled. As we get older, it takes longer to recover from the festival... Until then, you can listen to the Sled Island 2014 Compilation here.
