From Far It All Seems Small

“We realized the scene here is the best it’s been in a long, long time. There was a good feeling of camaraderie developing between many of the groups from playing shows together and working alongside each other on various projects. The comp is an opportunity to celebrate the music from our extended circle of friends here in town, and hopefully to galvanize the scene and contribute further to that sense of camaraderie.” (Supercrush‘s Mark Palm)
