As I was starting to discover music for myself, I can recall saying that the best music was that which was released outside of the major label market, and in a general sense, I believe that stands true today. As more artists are gravitating towards independence, labels like 7Core have made the marketing process a lot easier. And what better way to sample your roster than with a good compilation? 7Core Sonics #3 showcases six of their most popular artists. Each artist receives two slots in the tracklist which makes for a diverse sampler. Tina Boonstra's "Concrete Heart" and "Prodigal," both from her excellent EP from earlier this year, are decidedly the strongest cuts here. "Blackout" by Ian Yates is a fun rock track with a stomping, barnburner chorus, however, Yates' other inclusion, "Coming Home," features vocals that sound strangely uninterested and flat compared to his first sample. "Bluebells and Blossoms" from the Throwback Kid is a pleasant 90s nostalgia trip and "Fear the Night" by Foldinglights is a worshipful highlight in a soft rock vein. Finally, the two samples by The Neon Ambiance are both solid inclusions that add a bit of instrumental flair to the tracklisting. Overall, for anyone looking to discover some indie talent, this sampler has you covered.
