Popical Island compilation #2 sees the “bockety pop” collective revisit and reshape the Popical aesthetic that appeared little over a year ago in Volume 1.
The 18 songs takes in a more nostalgic indie-guitar sound than before overall with tracks from Goodly Thousands, Ginnels, We Are Losers, Land Lovers, Squarehead, Groom, Jonny Fun And The Hesitations, Grand Pocket Orchestra, Rhino Magic, Retarded Cop, Yeh Deadlies, Hello Moon, Michael Knight and more.
Volume #2′s all-day and night launch party in Whelan’s happened on Saturday 25th of June. There, you could pick up hand-packaged CD (with download code) and badges as well as catch live sets from 13 bands on the compilation (and Retarded Cop via satellite?).
