Various Artists – 420 Love Songs (Second 40)

You may remember that about a month ago we posted the first 40 in what a collective of underground musicians are hoping will be 420 love songs. This time, the project has expanded to make room for a lot of new faces; bringing the chances of this thing reaching 420 songs so much higher.

As far as the style, sound of these tracks go, they’re all pretty rough and lo-fi, which I know won’t appeal to everybody. I will also say that a lot of the tracks here, I think, rely on a more abstract portrayal of the love songs. However, there are quite a few tracks that feel pretty inspired from an emotional standpoint, and make this a project worth rooting for. Enjoy!

Various Artists – 420 Love Songs (First 40)

Some of today’s most melancholy and brutally honest songwriters have had their demos gathered from the 420 Love Songs Tumblr into a bandcamp compilation of infinite, sadness.

On here you can expect to see plenty from Sam Ray (Teen Suicide, Ricky Eat Acid, Julia Brown) who runs the Tumblr as well as his known friends like Mat Cothran (Coma Cinema, Elvis Depressedly), Infinity Crush, Happy Trendy, and some others. This is a compilation of song demos so you should know before going in that they are ridiculously lo-fi and distorted in some cases, but the way I look at it is it just adds to the whole theme of sad, longing love. This is still an going project so if you like what you hear here be sure to check out the Tumblr for more.
