Thought I'd share this fairly vintage compilation featuring ten bygone artists from a little town I paid a nice visit to last week. True, there's not a trace of Fugazi, Shudder to Think, or even Bad Brains to be found on Echos From the Nations Capital, however in their place we're treated to fine tuneage from such less oft heard '90s D.C. scenesters as the power poppin' High Back Chairs, indie demi-gods Tsunami, and a pair of my favorites, Trusty and Edsel, the latter of which I've dedicated some considerable space on these pages to. Lungfish check in with one of their best post-hardcore, slow-burners "Abe Lincoln," Liquor Bike offer the righteously heavy sludge rawker "Plain to See," while Wingtip Sloat and Candy Machine opt for a decidedly more avant bent.
