Listen: Wichita Compilation

Featuring The Cribs, Best Coast and more...

Wichita Records are streaming a new compilation featuring the best of their recent releases.

Independent labels often take on a unique character. Founded by two music lovers, Wichita Records is one of the finest imprints in the UK, with their eclectic roster fostering a close bond with fans.

Adapting to a changing climate, Wichita have continually kept one step ahead of the game. Now the label are letting fans hear what they’ve been up to after putting together a new compilation.

Streaming right now on their SoundCloud, the album opens with ‘Housewife’ from The Cribs. Anyone who saw their performance at RockNess will confirm that the Jarmans have lost none of their bite, with sessions for a new album ongoing.

Times New Viking are one of the finest noise pop outfits in the United States, with the trio recently returning with new material. Represented by ‘No Room To Live’ the band are part of a Trans-Atlantic partnership which also includes The Dodos, Les Savy Fav and more.

Shifting to include electronic music, Wichita seem to simply sign anyone who tickles their fancy. Gold Panda released one of last year’s finest electronic albums, and newcomer Star Slinger is featured tackling ‘Marriage’.
