Popical Island’s compilation series comes to a close with number three in the trilogy but not without cramming in a whole two sides featuring 23 tracks and bands asssociated with the collective. Today, you can hear Side A in its entirety which features songs from Big Monster Love, Tieranniesaur, Groom, Land Lovers, Mumblin’ Deaf Ro (read his track explanation), So Cow, Pantone 247 and more. You can check back here on Wednesday afternoon for Side B in its entirety.
The launch party is on Saturday from daytime til late in Whelan’s with nearly every band featured playing. Seriously, check out the gig poster below. Also, don’t forget #1 and #2 are now free downloads via Bandcamp.
