Abstract Artifact

I put together this set of tracks for a friend in New Zealand. I tried to pick quality rocking songs that had a decent chance of being new to him, which resulted in a fun hodgepodge of 70s/80s rock/power pop/art rock (a number thanks to the defunct Little Hits blog), with some recent (but not current) SF garage rock, interesting covers, a bit of semi-no wave, etc. The cover is a fragment of “Fool’s Parade,” a photo montage of a Carnival procession , Netherlands, 1938.
