Indie Birthday Compilations

Since 2004, I have been making an indie pop comp for my birthday. The compilations feature relatively recent music, unlike my other indie compilations (collected here), which draw on music from any year. Also, while my other indie compilations generally each try to focus on a particular sound or feeling, these indie birthday compilations are more stylistically diverse (although it is all still indie pop, broadly defined). Finally, these birthday compilations are relatively accessible, and much of it may be familiar to the indie music followers among you. The compilations so far include Ides of April, Glide, Bees Knees, Carousel, Treehouse, Walking Through Walls, Roam the Breezy Pastures, Now That I’m Older, Alien Ways, Memory Machine, Sound Eclipse, Come to Our House, Little Blue House, and Thoughtland.

Please find below cover images and brief descriptions of the four most recent birthday compilations, with the most recent at the top. Not all of them are on the site yet. If you click on the compilation title it will take you to a page with links to stream the compilations, as well as song lists for the compilations, videos for a few songs on the compilation, and any additional information I include. Please provide comments on particular compilations on the page for the compilation. Send me a message (or complete the form on this page) for more information about any of my music compilations.
