Hand Drawn Records. A Compilation. Volume 3.

“A Compilation. Volume 3.” – Releasing May 2014 on Hand Drawn Records. Twelve Artists, Two Days. Recorded at Big Acre Sound.

Striving to continually push, Hand Drawn Records began what would be the most holistic process in our three year history; assembling, recording and manufacturing a compilation album from inception to issuance. Spread over two days in early November 2013, the Texas weather had not yet turned inclement in Copper Canyon, and the countryside air of Big Acre Sound Studios proved to be infectious.

The twelve artists called for this venture were only restricted by the trimmed down nature of the process. The objective—stray away from overdubbed layering in order to construct a simple, yet resonating assortment of music.

Within the digital grooves lie varied genres, bound together loosely with reverb and acoustic guitar strings. There are hints of backwoods meanderings, pop balladry, and discordant electronic flourishes; yet it isn’t at this top view that the work should be garnered, the devil has always lived in the details, and the details here are alive, breathing.

Artists include; Andrew Tinker, Always the Alibi, Bad Mountain, Brandon Callies, Exit 380, John Earle Mainord, Jonathan Jeter, Rachel Gollay, Summer of Glaciers, Swindle Boys, Taylor Craig Mills and Un Chien.
