420 Love Songs (First 40)

Over the past few months Sam Ray, of Ricky Eat Acid, formerly of Teen Suicide, and now of Julia Brown, has been maintaing a tumblr called “420 Love Songs”, frequently posting short songs and demos by himself and other artists who are friends of his.  The first 40 songs of this project have recently been compiled into this one bandcamp album and although they come from many different people and places, all of the songs work together perfectly.  They all share the sense of melancholy Ray has shown how great he is at putting into music, and a fairly heavy lo-fi aesthetic for the most part.  Artists on this compilation include Teen Suicide, Julia Brown, Infinity Crush, Happy Trendy, Coma Cinema (another project of Mat Cothran’s of Elvis Depressedly) and lots of other great contributions.  Lately I haven’t been able to get enough of Elvis Depressedly, Teen Suicide, and Julia Brown, so this is like Christmas for me.  Stream two of my favorite tracks below, and the whole bandcamp page after the jump.
