Counting Stars With The Curtains Shut
A HI54LOFI RECORDS Compilation
Counting Stars with the Curtains Shut was sort of the starting point for what would become HI54LOFI RECORDS. Before I started HI54LOFI RECORDS, I spent my internet time 'dressing up like a hooker', which I realize sound a lot different than what it actually was.
Part of my DULAHIBCS'n was turning my Myspace friends list into a sort of 'Myspace Mix CD'. Basically, I would update my friends list each month with 10 artists that I had recently discovered and who I thought were making some ace tunes. After doing it for so long, I eventually realized that I should put together a compilation.
And I guess after going through all those steps of putting a compilation together, and after realizing that Myspace was sinking fast and we might all lose touch, I decided to create HI54LOFI RECORDS and expand on all the things that led into and came out of doing this very compilation.
It originally came out in July of 2009. It had a different cover and I even put together a little PDF for it (all of which was made in MS Paint + Powerpoint).
Ahh… simpler times.
So there's a little back story for you.
The compilation was free back then and is still free today. It always brings back good memories listening to this (and I've managed to keep in touch with most of the artists).
