This two-disc collection from St. Petersburg, Florida label Peephole Records boasts an astounding fifty tracks of contemporary rock & roll from a number of independent bands and artists, and while not everything here resonates, enough of it does to make this a worthwhile listen. The variety is impressive, from garage rock attitude ("Gimme Gimme Your Heart" by the Cryptkeeper Five), melodic power pop ("Baby Girl" by the Queers), Ramones clones ("No Unity" by the Norma Jeans, "Cans of Beer" by the Gamma Rays), to countless punk and punk-pop forays. It all serves to underscore the tremendous vitality that continues to run through the indie scene, as styles merge and bleed into each other. It seems absurd to call a band emo power pop punk, but that's as good a description as any for bands like Gatsby's American Dream, whose "Why We Fight" sounds like a riskier version of the Counting Crows. Or how about rockabilly punk, which pretty much sums up the ferocious version of "Suspicious Minds" included here by the Independents. In the end, this impressive sampler has way more hits than misses, and the wonderful news is that it only scratches the surface of what's out there.
