Hands Together Vol 1 – Home & Abroad

The industrious Rob Ross, formerly of Edmonton and now residing in London, Ontario, has done the logical and virtuous thing and started a much needed bedroom label for Canada’s healthy but perpetually suckling hotbed of electronic music. (HE’S BUILDING A DIVING BOARD! HE’S BUILDING A DIVING BOARD!) Mr. Ross has aptly titled this newborn star HANDS and it is a name you will become very familiar with if you are among the handsome and super hip congregation that read this blog regularly. The launch of the label has been wisely accompanied by a shimmering mix that includes masthead members of the label such as Flora, itsagamble!, Miramichi, Eaux Neaux, and many more as well as close cousins and longtime compatriots like Gobble Gobble, Kuhrye-oo, and Purity Ring. I am not sure which camp Headaches is in but I am eager to find out. I could confidently call this mix the definitive electronic compilation for the current canadian underground. Not having it on your hard drive would be sort of stupid.
