Memory Machine

Memory Machine cover

Since 2004, I have been making an indie pop comp for my birthday (prior entries into the series includes Ides of April, Glide, Bees Knees, Carousel, Treehouse, Walking Through Walls, Roam the Breezy Pastures, Now That I’m Older, and Alien Ways). This year’s comp is called Memory Machine. All songs are from 2011-2013 (mostly 2012-2013). As usual for this series, I think it is relatively accessible, and much of it may be familiar to the indie music followers among you.
