If you miss free label compilations like we do, you're in luck! Boston based Rum Bar Records specializes in old school rock 'n' roll. Last week they released Somebody Out There Is Having A Party Vol 2 (Free Digital) Summer Sampler, a thirty-three song featuring "Garage, Punk, Glam, Greaser, Power-Pop, Paisley Rock, Heartland-Punk, Blue Collar Pub Rock, Twang, Dirty Blues, Cow Punk, Surf's Up!!" Within these thirty-three songs is literally something for everyone, especially if you were raised on 50's rock 'n' roll like some of us (ie: Me). With this many songs it's truly impossible to cover every aspect of it, but some highlights are Justine & The Unclean's powerpop meets doo wop, Muck and The Mires's groovy garage rock, Jittery Jack & Amy Griffin On Guitar's sock hop ready rockabilly, and The Dents's blistering garage pop.
You can listen to Jittery Jack & Amy Griffin On Guitar's "Dance Adrianne Dance" below. Somebody Out There Is Having A Party Vol 2 (Free Digital) Summer Sampler is available as a free download on Rum Bar Records's Bandcamp. For more on Rum Bar Records, check out the label's website.
