Just for fun, just to wind down the summer and make our way into the approaching colder days, it's the fourth installation of the ongoing Lifers compilation series. While earlier volumes of the series were more involved, the call went out for submissions to this one maybe a week before the tapes were being made. It came together in a perfectly loose manner, trying to keep the stress of the outside world from permeating the vibe these ten tracks maintain.
Fully exclusive and unreleased material from everyone on the tape, with a multi-angled Michigan representation from XV, Dr. Peter Larson, Shells, and other crown jewels of the mitten state, world destruction by way of Texas from Blank Hellscape, eerie New England melancholia from Gold Dust and Mountain Movers, and the first inkling of new material from Winged Wheel since the band expanded and met up in person (a worlds-collide combination lock with members of Matchess, Spray Paint, Powers/Rolin Duo, and more, with Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley on drums).
