Comment: The Harvey Girls` 9-notch outing can be considered a classic indie pop album where jangly guitar-based templates are mixed up with synthesised effects and with some electronic music around it. However, recent understanding of indie music is already changed because the synthesisers have conquered the scene and mostly the result used to be quite cold and making no difference. There is no naivety, there is no belief for better future. Frequently all is changed into a repellent electronic gross. Do you like such combos as Kasabian, and 1975? I do not like them. Do you like Primal Scream in the year of 2016 and 2017? I do not like it. However, Primal Scream`s Vanishing Point (1997, Creation) is one of the best albums throughout the time. The album starts off with Green Light, the first chords of it remind of Pulp`s Do You Remember The First Time. I like if guitars and synths are balanced on a release or the artists trying to avoid lame synthesised sounds (for instance, The Smiths` album Queen Is Dead, and Strangeways Here We Come, and Blur`s Blur, and Mercury Rev`s Light In You, and Animal Collective`s five first albums, and Sufjan Steven`s albums are great ones with regard to it). The point of mine is also related to the belief that sonic effect based approach cannot replace solid songwriting. The Harvey Girls succeeds doing it. The album embraces catchy melodies and experiments due to song structures and sounds. It is filled with hirsute noises and gentle jingle-jangling sounds, with expressive and restrained moods. Furthermore, I could not resist singing in unison by female and male voices. All is craftily balanced on the album being released under Imaginary Albums.

Comment: given that the description of chiptune/bitpop/nintendocore/tracker music is based on crashing and crawling rough bits being mostly related to rhythm I guessed I could hear classic chiptune music from the recent 13-notch issue. It is partly so because there are the crashin-crawlin` beats but mostly it chimes differently. More profoundly, the concept of the miscellany is based on Nanoloop 2, the advance gameboy program. It might be the reason can be dug out from there because of being a bit more advanced, developed platform than the previous ones and thereby reminding more of contemporary electronic music. Obviously rbtr`s Yourdogbitme is the only classical one represented over there in its thoroughgoing simplicity and roughness. However, even if I excepted something different to hear I am not disappointed at all because the result is intriguing and intricate full of good, better and even better examples. From minimally designed electro and straightforwardly acid oriented electro pop and sheer electro disco/house grooves (for instance, Tetris Hold`em`s fabulous Behaviour House, and Marcus Rafferty`s The Electron Theory as fabulous as well) and fast-speed galloping to cut-up electro undercurrents and incisive glacial-alike glistening in timbre and sonic effect drenched improvisations. The compilation is released by such label as CatchyNameRecords, and there are up such artists as Rhinostrich, rbtr, Tetris Hold`em, CatchyNameMusic, Marcus Rafferty, Little-Scale, LoBit, and 8bit-Meta. Great compilation. Everlasting.
