BLAST FROM THE PAST: VARIOUS ARTISTS – DEEPER UNDERGROUND VOL. 1 (2002)

BigO (Before I Get Old) magazine celebrated its 200th issue recently; it has also co-released this album (with Leonard Soosay’s Snakeweed Recordings) as a showcase of what the Singapore indie rock scene has to offer.

The bands here exemplify the breath of the indie music scene – whether it is the Britpop of Sherene’s Closet, the punk pop of The Moderates, the mat surf rock hybrid of Force Vomit or the death metal of Ossuary – all worthy material.

Eclectic enough for most pop-rock palettes.
