COMPOST (May 2020)

Still stuck at home, scratching at the walls, bored out of your skull? Cool! Me too! I’m at the point now where I’m sick of finding things to do. I just want to stare at a wall or something.

COMPOST (#015) – Burdigala Records

_______________________________________________________________

Straight outa Bordeaux France (home of wine and probably other things too), this is the Bordal Fest compilation. Bordal Fest being some kind of concert series celebrating the partnership between Burdigala Records and something called Picole. I don’t know what any of this means for either party, but I do know it means a pretty sick comp full of squeaky-clean pop punk for our enjoyment. Any one of these bands could be very much at home on Fat Wreck Chords, and no, I don’t mean that as an insult. I see how it could be perceived as one though. All I’m saying is this stuff really appeals to the 15 year old skater-punk in me, and it should appeal to the one in you too. If you don’t have a 15 year old skater-punk in you.. You know what, I’m gonna stop myself right there. Have a nice day folks.
