Glasgow superstar and previous Tabi Tapes contributor Jamie Burke mobilises his exciting new Are You Before label with an epic compilation of the international DIY underground intelligentsia.  Anyone who followed Jamie’s Are You Before (sorely missed) NTS radio show will be aware of his acute ear for the immersive, sentimental and strange - the 11 tracks herein are arranged with a similar sensibility, skirting around the fringes of quiet-time home-brewed folk from a number of contemporary artists considered holy here at the shop.  Brannten Schnüre’s mildewy, Deutsche cover of The Flaming Tunes’ ‘Restless Mind’ is worth the entry alone, plus also providing a perfect reference point back to where a lot of current contemporary scene continues to draw influence from.  Elsewhere it’s variations centred around strings - LA native City Illusion lurks in the shadows with the dub-damaged ‘Illusion Blue’, Morc boss Circle Bros layers up delay-drenched guitar drones whilst Catalan artist Ubaldo makes a welcome return after that cherished Casa LP from back in 2020.  Unearth Noise shimmering, intimate ‘Sleep Well, Sweet Friend’ will have you welling up, whilst scrappier moments come via David ‘Nein’ Rodere’s short ’n sweet ‘Maison’ and the wooly, endearing closer ‘Bending With The Wind’ from shop fav The Sprigs.  Perfect comp.  (Mint / New)
