Turbo's Tunes

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jimmy Draper
As Kill Rock Stars' second top-notch sampler in as many years, Turbo's Tunes is an utterly enjoyable intro to various punk and rock releases from the Olympia, WA-based independent label.

From the blues-punk numbers by the Gossip and Holly Golightly to Cadallaca's shimmy and shake shenanigans, there's nary a misstep throughout the album's entire 73 minutes.

Fans of Kill Rock Stars probably already have most of these 19 tracks, but anyone curious about the label and its acts should start right here.
