“Every single day, I get up at 5:30am, go a regular job, make money and pay bills. Then I come home and work some more- here, on Dingus. And although this is the work that I love, this is the work that’s hardest. None of the writers on this blog make any money off their words. None of the bands are selling records to pay their bills. Often, I’m asked why I hold myself to such a structured scheduled for something that I call a “passion project”. Surely it can be done on my own time. The answer is because I truly believe, that what we do here, on this little wordpress site, is playing its part to define a movement within the audio society of today.”
That’s why day in and day out, we write, we edit (poorly), and we compile, for the few who tune in and catch on while an artist is still embryonic and alive. Before fame (and sometimes money) becomes a pollutant.
Now, it is with great privilege that I present to you, The Dildo Indigo Youth Compilation Vol. 3; a crude title for an irreplaceable piece of our music history. Join Treehaus, Ben Wash, Mumblr, Memoryy, (exitpost), and Andrew Henry as they illustrate a small slice of self produced, heartfelt music:
If you can hear the quiver in my voice, than you can understand how deeply moved I am by a community of artists driven, not by profit, but by passion, to create, release, promote and perform the arts as they see fit.
Subsequently, the DIY musician has given rise to the DIY label. With this budding community (it’s been budding now for years) we see (growing) organization.
We see the demonstration move from the bedroom to the DIY office, to the DIY venue, to the DIY street and we are enamored by the lustful ambition to fuck the whole world that emanates from each individual as they fight, fail and succeed in being heard. With that we shout out King’s Head Records and Fleeting Youth Records, organizations like our own, putting in the hard work required to push the movement further. Bravo. Horrah. Mavel tov.
I’d like to sit here and tell you about each track, tell you how carefully I picked and placed them together for you, why I broke them the way I did, how I started, How I ended; but I think we’re past that. Have a little faith bb. Have a little love. And give me 5 tracks to change your mind and ways.
“I’m seventeen, I’m seventeen, I’m seventeen, and I like you, but your parents are racist.” – Mumblr
This compilation is dedicated to the only other free thinking, liberal in my family, someone who touched my life and gave me the courage to follow my dreams, no matter how absurd or unrealistic they might be- my great aunt Olga. She would have dug that Ben Wash track, I know it.
Album artwork, as always, by the fantastic dream bae, Nika De Carlo.
