Disc 1:

Compilations of various Portland bands, all in the indie-rock vein. Standout tracks: 4, 5, 7, 12, 19, 22

1. The Honest Truth (Typhoon) – Heavy acoustic guitar, raw vocals, awesome trumpet and brass accompaniment, solid
2. Forms Without A Frame (Brainstorm) – Sing-along lyrics, tons of layering, steel drum, awesome guitar duets, very West Coast sound
3. Abducted (Y La Bamba) – Low, growling female vocals, minor shuffle with tinkling guitar riffs throughout
4. You’re A Winner (The Wild Ones)** – Upbeat, child-like female vocal the focus, super catchy and sweet indie pop
5. Inaudible Song II (Jared Mees & The Grown Children)* – Storytelling lyrics, cool bass riff, celebratory trumpet/brass, Fanfarlo-like songwriting
6. Knife In the Sail (Adventure Galley) – More rock influence, heavy, blooming guitar, airy synth, half-shouted lyrics
7. Rotten To the Core (The Builders and the Butchers)* – Jangling, Western jam, barn-dance-able
8. Tits Up (Spesus Christ) – Going for the comedic factor, silly voices, electronic bloops and drum machine percussion, strangely catchy, falsetto singing
9. Library Books (Upsidedown Cat) – Ode to missing library books. Adorable in a sing-along/Raffi way, lots of piano, lead vocal sings in a flat, minor monotone
10. Run With Fever (Social Studies) – Breathy female vocals, synth bloops with heavy driving percussion, typical indie pop fare
11. Smiling & Tender (Jeffrey Jerusalem) – Dance beat, spoken lyrics, processed female vocal that sounds like a baby
12. Fierce Creatures (Satan Is a Vampire)** - Layered guitar, chanting, big sound with tasteful synth opening, multiple transitions, guitar solo 1/2 through
13. Nuclear Soul (Lida Husik) – Minor shuffle, metallic acoustic guitar, Liz Phair-esque female vocals
14. Swim Wheels (Leviticus Appleton) – Strange synth/electronic melody over paired down vocals, reverb guitar
15. Bad Energy (Slow Trucks) – Cheesy backup vocals, more rock influence, big guitar sound
16. Silver Hands (Alameda) - Folk influence, pleasant male vocal over acoustic guitar and clarinet duet, strings
17. Go to Bed (Quiet Countires) – Low key dance beat, lyrics about going to bed, super cheesy
18. Salt That’s in Our Blood (Sean Flinn & the Royal We)* – Minor fast shuffle, banjo, pleasant folk/western jam
19. Anymore (The Woodlands)** – Electronic, breathy female vocals, synth layering, dance beat
20. Hook in My Arm (John Heart Jackie) – Low key acoustic guitar and quiet percussion, warm male vocals
21. Buy You (And And And) – Up tempo rock, vocals have a nasal edge, hand clapping
22. Please, Please George (Dinosaur Feathers)** - Clever lyrics, synth, Beach-boys guitar, fun fun fun
