Various Artists, Stomp Atlantica Compilation

There are 27 tracks on this compilation, but I ran outta steam at 23 (I’m not as young as I used to be). Here’s what I found: political spoken word á la the Last Poets with a human beat-box, punk rock channeling a young Joe Strummer, yodeling country crooning with ever present chorus vocals on chorus, duhduh-duhduh crusty punk, trying-to-get-laid boy-folk, electro-clash, early Ani-dissatisfied girl-folk, punk rock that grew up on metal, casio-punk, piano-pop verses with buzzsaw choruses, bratty psychedelic punk, soft-sensitive boy post-punk, screeching babble punk, surprisingly competent Las Vegas glam rock, more generic punk, angry guy with acoustic guitar, sloppy babble punk with cardboard drums, buzzsaw punk, dark synth with non-ironic robot references, heroic punk, guitar drone action, yelling punk, and then slide guitar psyche folk. You be the judge. (Terence Dick)
