Smoke Notes

As the title of this 3 CD set would suggest this compilation celebrates US indie label Matador's fifteenth year of operation, with particular focus on the label's last five years (the 'What's Up Matador' compilation covered the first ten years when released five years back). Throughout it's long, illustrious and occasionally troubled life, Matador has been one of the true bastion's of "indie" song-orientated music in the US, with a number of the bands signed or licensed to the label reaching far beyond both the US, and the "indie" world. Comprising "greatest hits", "unreleased and rarities" and "video/dvd" CDs, this compilation covers current Matador "stars" such as recent visitor Cat Power, current leading lights Interpol, rising stars The New Pornographers and Pretty Girls Make Graves, plus "indie" stalwarts such as Yo La Tengo, Mission Of Burma, Mogwai, Belle & Sebastian, Guided By Voices, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Stephen Malkmus, along with the more esoteric, such as Matmos and Cornelius. A great introduction for those unfamiliar with much of Matador's output, this set also serves the more committed fan just as well - both the "rarities" CD and DVD are well worth investigation. Recommended.
