Somewhere in Scotland in a bedroom lives a certain Lauren Moose who’s running a zero profit music label called Heavenly Creature Records. I have no idea whatsoever of who she is and if she’s a one-woman project. Anyway, this is a fantastic story putting all money-greedy major music companies into the shadow.
Early this year the label dropped a benefit compilation on Bandcamp (not the first one), baptized Death By Thousand Covers re Records shared a charity compilation (not the first one) on Bandcamp. It featured no less than 46 covers of megastar Taylor Swift (far-far too-too many-many jet flights, bad girl), by indie artists around the globe, All proceeds went to Refuweegee. A Glasgow-based community-led charity that aims to provide a warm welcome to forcibly displaced people arriving in Scotland.
And here’s another benefit compilation. It actually celebrates the first birthday of Heavenly Creature Records. It features 21 tracks (unreleased, originals, covers) contributed by friends, label mates, and supporters. All proceeds go to Four Pillars. An Aberdeen-based LGBT organization that works with people across Grampian.
ONE YEAR OF is a sonic paradise for all indie fans out there with all sorts of great stuff/genres. From dream pop to hardcore, from post-punk to post-rock.
