Night-People Records, the Iowa imprint run by a guy named Shawn Reed, decided to strap on its boots last week and announce the release of ten new cassettes all at once, because now that music is infinite I guess large-batch releases of small-editions of works is just “a thing” and we're gonna have to deal with it. But for the press schedule, how can we possibly review all these releases at once and not have it look like favoritism? They are all wildly different, so that solves the problem for more genre-oriented places, but at Impose we don't give a chicken's butt about genre so we are still in the mud. The other way we could do it is to just talk about the compilation that Reed released along with the records. It's called Dada Damage, and it has songs from most of the aritsts in this batch on it. So maybe just download that, and listen along as we explain who all of these groups are real-quick like. And since there's so many, I'm just gonna break it down to the bare essentials: Band, title, release art (all done by Reed except for one), short bio, one sentence of editorial. Bam, Bam, Bam.

Listen to: “Better Than Me”
A functionally nasal singer over pretty bell-toned guitars and muffled drums from the bedroom; songs by a cute dork for other cute dorks.
