HoZac Hookup Club: Round One
A compilation of the first year’s worth of instant collectibles from the fanzine turned trendsetting record label, Round One features at least one song from each of the ten 7-inch releases and a couple tracks new to this collection. My favorite songs here — by Idle Times, Woven Bones, Box Elders and White Mystery — come from the garage end of HoZac’s mostly lo-fi spectrum. Also on the album are two of the three tracks from an early release by indie pop sensations Dum Dum Girls. Along with being a much easier way to get some of this music than trying to find the singles at this point, it’s also a convenient microcosm for the uninitiated of the label’s aesthetic. Hopefully there will be companion volumes for subsequent singles club seasons. (HoZac Records, 2010)
