I can't speak highly enough about this compilation that Bay Area producer An-Ten-Nae has put together. There are some incredibly nasty beats on here from the likes of Ooah (Glitch Mob/PANTyRAiD), Marty Party (PANTyRAiD), Adam Freeland, Robot Koch, An-ten-nae himself, and more. I hadn't heard of Opiuo before this compilation, but I did some research and found this amazing EP, which you can name your price on (no minimum), and it blew me away. Keep an eye on all of the artists associated with this compilation, and everything coming out of the Muti Music label, it's all really great stuff, and while you're at it...BUY THIS COMP!!
Adam Freeland records his solo music under his birth name. He records his "band" stuff as a 3-piece. "Cope" is the bands most recent release on Freelands' own Marine Parade label (home to Bomarr Blog favorites PANTy RAiD and Evil Nine). I've been enjoying a good chunk of this album lately, and I actually hadn't really heard anything about this new record until recently. After doing some research, I discovered that the record features lots of guitar parts from Joey Santiago of the Pixies, Twiggy Ramirez (ex-Marilyn Manson), Jerry Casalle of Devo, and even Tommy Lee on some drums (on the really amazing, epic, Sigur Ros-like track "Mancry", which you can check out over on his myspace page).
