Review

Review Text Athens, GA's Orange Twin Records released this 12-track sampler in 2002. The disc begins with Neutral Milk Hotel's "Everything Is" from the band's debut single. What follows is a sampling of some of Athens' best and brightest psychedelic indie rock, including Elf Power's cover of Chris Knox's "Nothing's Gonna Happen" from their Nothing's Going to Happen disc of cover songs. Elephant 6 supergroups Great Lakes and Gerbils follow, as well as the intricate "The Eggleston Guide" by Goodship. Elyse Weinberg is featured on "Last Ditch Protocol" from Orange Twin's re-release of the 1968 psychedelic-folk classic. Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum's live solo cover of Phil Spector's "I Love How You Love Me" is certainly a highlight of the compilation, as are the layered sound effects on Major Organ's "Life Form." The disc ends with an excerpt from Orange Twin Field Works, Vol. 1, as recorded by Magnum at the Koprivshtista Festival in Bulgaria in August 2000. The music on Orange Twin Records Sampler is startlingly diverse, proving that Athens is more than just R.E.M. territory. ~ Stephen Cramer
